I think there are still a couple of holdouts from the EU in what is generally considered Europe, but yeah, pretty much. Most people don't say Europe and think that Russia is grouped right in there.

You are well beyond missing the point. I was simply trying to explain to InBlack that running fiber in Croatia is a less daunting task than running it in the US because our country is nearly as big as a continent. I figured someone in Croatia would have a decent grasp of that scale.

Uh, our country is bigger than all of Europe. By quite a bit. And that's not even including Alaska and Hawaii.

USA - 3,794,101 sq mi

Europe - 3,930,000 sq mi

I looked it up before posting

Well said Pigeon. The article is complete and utter paid-for-shill bullshit. In my country (Croatia) the biggest cable company is currently promoting and provding a six month 120MBIT connection FREE trial for new users. Unrestricted, unlimited broadband with NO caps. For less than a dollar. If I wasnt already a customer I would be signing up ASAP. If a shitty east european country can do it, there is NO REASON whatsever that this should be a problem in the US. The infrastructure investment is just SPIN. Dont believe a word of it, optic-fibre is realtively cheap. The real reason for the terrible caps on broadband in the states is PERCIEVED PIRACY. The digital publishers, retailers, distributors, record companies, etc. are working in collusion with ISPs on this.

The scale of the US is so much larger than people realize. The state I live in (Indiana) is 50% larger with 50% more people than your entire country. Indiana isn't among the largest states in the US. Our country is nearly as big as ALL of Europe. That's a crapton of fiber to run.

That said, the communications companies running them certainly aren't hurting for money and could easily do the upgrade if they had to...but they don't because there's not enough competition.

I think Creston has the right line of thought here because the blurb specifically says that at least one of the planets lie on the event horizon of the black hole (the chthonian world). At that point, you would not even be able to see the planet from outside the event horizon, assuming that it wasn't already being disintegrated, because light is being pulled inwards.

The gas giant is more plausible.

But I agree, if they could do the effects right and suspend disbelief for a bit...it could look insanely awesome with time and optical dilation.

Whoa. Uhhhh...I guess there was always going to be a time when my 4 year old build was going to become obsolete, I just didn't realize it was going to be by a game that historically has 10 hours of gameplay.

I'm short on the proc, RAM and just barely passing on the vid card.

But I have a solution! I never planned to buy the damn game in the first place, so my machine is safe...for now.

There are still booth babes, so I'd say it's still an issue. That said, sexism has been and always will be an issue in most male-dominated industries. Until men stop wanting to look at hot chicks, this isn't going to change so good luck with that.

How on earth is paying a model to do what models get paid to do sexist in any way?

"I'm sorry miss, but we can't hire you this year because apparently your career offends people. Good luck finding work!"

If hiring male models helps the companies sell more games, then you can bet your ass that's exactly what they'll do.

I doubt many intelligence agencies make this sort of error

Errrr...like the kind of intelligence errors that would lead a country to, say, invade 2 other countries based upon completely false information resulting in thousands of lost lives?

What was it now? Ano 2070? I haven't played it, but shit it looks good.

There's also that Cities XL, but even though I bought it the hard drive it was on died, so I never got a chance to try it out.

Either way, two potentially viable alternatives that probably deserve more marketing than Simcity does today.

Cities XL is tons of fun but suffers from both bad coding and disinterest in fixing said coding. When your city reaches into the higher population numbers, a memory leak that's been with the franchise since the first iteration and has not been fixed causes even the most robust of systems to slow to a crawl.

It's a real shame because it's a great game otherwise.

guards beating up a worker

WTF? Do they run their businesses like prisons? Geez, and I thought American Corporatism was bad.

Ummmm...yes, yes they do. And American Corporatism is the reason Foxconn exists. They make the vast majority of US electronic devices including most Apple products to name one of many.

There was an article not too long ago about Foxconn putting up large nets around their buildings to catch the workers (who live on the plant grounds in tiny apartments btw) who try to kill themselves by jumping.

It's all in the name of cheap luxury items for you and me.
