They not only still exist they are doing pretty well, stock symbol SYMC. It is the anti-viral software my corporation uses (40,000+ employees world-wide).

Eight wrong for me so far, however on all but one of those the majority of picks were also wrong. So.. it will be interesting to see if anyone actually managed a good week.

I'm done picking the fucking Eagles. Fuck Chip Kelly, Fuck Michael Vick, Fuck Philadelphia

I kinda thought Philly might be due but I wasn't going to buck the odds and KC looks pretty hot so I picked them instead. This is going to be a grueling weekend for football methinks.
I thought the game was a toss up -- and it pretty much was, Philly could have won the game. In the end I gave more weight to the "home" advantage than to KC's "momentum." Oh well...

Another Thursday NFL game where the losing team could have easily won the game. This time my pick for our BTI league was on the wrong side, *sigh*.

The engineering behind righting the Costa Concordia is incredible. Here's to hoping the rest of the operation goes as well.

Either the RMAH was making less than I thought, or they're smarter than I thought -- probably a bit of both.

I was 13-3 in week 2, but I think against the spread I'd have probably been 5-11, because of how close so many games were.
Yeah, but you may also have picked the games differently if you were picking against the spread. But yeah, the guys in Vegas are good at their jobs...

Let us pay a subscription to get an ad-free layout. If a site like Ars can do it, why not Blue's?
+1 -- although Blue has indicated a reluctance previously...

The day Blizz takes these servers off line, there will be mass suicides. All those freaks that just canít let this game go are going to go completely crazy.
That isn't going to happen anytime soon. Hell, EQ is still up and running and it started it 5 years before WoW...

Edit: Math is hard

Seven months ago they were pulling in over $200M in a month. And the revenue has been falling for a long time. Doesn't seem like even entire series of Halo or CoD would come close. But if someone has stats to show otherwise I'd be interested in hearing them.

Has WoW maybe been the most successful game ever, both in terms of number of players and profits?
I would imagine it has to be by far. If there is anything close I can't magine what it would be. I mean yeah, they have high costs too, lots of employees and servers, but still. Now if you want to go for highest percentage return, Minecraft probably wins that.
