I try to protect my privacy from marketers as much as possible... running Firefox without keeping history / cookies / LSA's, Ghostery, Random Agent Spoofer with random IPs, Adblock Plus, No Script, etc. etc.

However, I don't really have a huge concern that the government might be monitoring my Amazon searches.

Putin gave me an assload of cash, and I'm donating every dime to these "clearly professional developers" that are going to make an awesome STALKER game!

I'll never rent my OS. Nor will I live with it constantly wanting me to use / pay for cloud services. My shit stays on my devices... Period. Nor am I willing to be constantly data-mined with Bing interconnected to everything in the OS.

So, even though I like the Windows 10 Preview way more than Windows 8/8.1... it looks like I'll be passing on it too, and Windows 7 will truly be my last MS OS at home.

Well, a maybe sandbox RPGs aren't your thing.

I don't buy ARPGs nor RTS's... They just don't float my boat. To each their own.

It is real apparent that Tim can't run a company.

To echo what Kajetan said, a company doesn't last 14 years as a fluke. So it is apparent that Tim can run a company. That's a hell of a lot longer than the average developer lasts.

Just because he can barely keep the studio afloat for 14 years doesn't make him a good business man. He definitely has difficulty managing money for his projects. We've seen that more than once.

Unless they get lucky on something I think they'll at the very least continue to downsize, and maybe not survive 2015.

Wouldn't hurt my feelings. It is real apparent that Tim can't run a company. The more I think about it... there have been many great developers that have tried... and they just don't have the business sense. Pretty much, creative types don't have what is necessary to run a business, especially since most mis-manage finances on "Big Dreams". Not saying that some aren't successful... but most aren't.

Tim and company would be better off working for Disney as a Neo Lucas Arts, IMO. Maybe they'll get lucky if the Grim Fandango remake does well, and Disney buys them out.

I'll just put it this way...

I kicked in $20 or so for Star Citizen. I really only did it for Squadron 42, and couldn't care less about the online game. I have not bought any ships or anything. If Squadron 42 can't be played offline... I'd want my money back... regardless if I beta tested it a bit or not.

Other than full fledged MMOs that *I* intend to play online only... I do not buy games with on-line requirements. Period.

I have this classic sitting in my Steam library and I've never played the game. Maybe now is the time.

Better not. You'll quickly find out how lacking modern games are (game-play-wise).

I find it interesting that everyone said (pre-launch of both consoles) that graphics would be dumbed down to the lowest common denominator and you wouldn't have any advantage with PS4's processing power... then a good chunk of developers have instead decided to dumb down the xbone's resolution to make up for the lack of power.

...and yes... being able to attain native resolution on a display makes a noticeable difference. If you play on an older native 720P TV, your golden with an XBone.

Just don't understand all the incredible revulsion people have for the Xbone.

It shouldn't be difficult to understand. They shipped a weak system on purpose and tried to force people to use their gimmicky camera crap. Then they tried to charge a premium for it. They took a dump on customers with DRM and had to back peddle. Their entire strategy has been a series of missteps and shitty PR. At the same time Sony capitalized on their errors by taking opposition stances to pretty much everything Microsoft did. It should be no surprise that people don't like the system that tried to force unfavorable choices on them.

Microsoft has made some good decisions since then but they have a long way to go with customers before that trust is regained. They spent an entire generation building goodwill and pissed it all away in 3 months. It was a very impressive trainwreck.

I was sort of interested in the Google-Free Fire phone (rather let Amazon data mine me since my wife and I do use a lot of their services)... but unfortunately it's the AT&T exclusive that kills it for us.

Not that I think Verizon is any better... however, in my case Verizon has much better coverage in our area, especially when we go motorcycle riding in outlying areas... so, yeah... "it's the Network" for me.

So, I'm guessing our next phones will be CyanogenMod versions of Android.

PS4 Finally Gets YouTube App

Not real happy with the fact that you have to sign in to PSN just to watch videos. The fricken datamining needs to stop!

Create a second Youtube account specifically for the PS4. Google/Youtube will know it's you if you use the same email address but PSN will only have access to the account you link.

There's no youtube account involved... it's just Sony making you sign in to PSN, and of course they are sharing info with Google... so it's both Sony and Google datamining you at the same time.
