And read my post. It was a package deal from work. I didn't have much choice about the speakers, and only mentioned it because the $1,000 included what usually costs a stupid sum.

$1,000

27" IPS monitor (2560 x 1440)
Intel i7-3770
nVidia 660
16GB Ram
256 Samsung 840Pro SSD
BluRay drive
Crappy bose speakers
I'd take that deal.

Nice to see something useful coming out of Blue Waters. I work a couple of hundred yards from the building it is housed in. It was quite the effort to get it built. IBM backed out late in the process, after the building was finished. It has been a long road.

While I agree that scenario is within the set of things that is possible, I think the chance she is simply trolling the celebrity media is extremely unlikely. It's far more likely she is using drugs or is bipolar. And even if she is trolling the celebrity media, it only makes the whole thing that much more interesting.

His point is that it's small and portable, and he can take it with him anywhere.
Uh, sorry nin. His point is that a Rasberry Pi is small and portable? Discovery of the century! It is a stupid article.

I would assume it is his first slice of pizza in NYC. I agree I would find it difficult to believe it was his first ever. Frankly, I didn't even recognize him. Somehow I looked right past "Patrick Stewart" at the top of the page looked at the photo and tweet, and was thinking... "Yeah, so? An old guy would never had a NYC slice before. So what?" LOL. I really need to pay more attention...

And remember, this isn't some 16 year old kid -- she's 27. I wouldn't go so far as to say she needs rehab or therapy, yet. However, she certainly needs to start acting like an adult. She may have gotten more grief than she's deserved, but if she has it isn't by much. That said, as I indicated previously, there is a certain guilty pleasure in watching the meltdown...

I still think tablets are just a fad right now. You really can't do anything useful with them. They cannot replace a business users PC to any extent.
Well... not totally true. I work in a remote office and the last time my boss visited us, the only "PC" he brought to use during his 3.5 day stay here was an iPad. He could do everything he needed with it. He did have and occasionally used an attachable keyboard -- but for simple mail and document handling, it's all he needed.

That said -- to me the only use I would ever get out of it is doing a wiki/google search from my couch or while out drinking. I don't own one, and doubt I will any time soon.

She play's Emma Stone's ARCH ENEMY in Easy A.
D'OH! You are right. That's what I get for trusting my memory. My apologies to Aly Michalka.

I didn't know who she was until I saw "Easy A" (a pretty good "teen film" -- helps that I like Emma Stone), she plays Stone's best friend in the movie. Until recently she was a young, up and coming, starlet with reasonable credentials. Not a super star but certainly a known name within the Hollywood scene.

Hmmm.. interesting. To me, the article reads like Vivendi is having debt issues and is looking for a quick fix by selling Act./Bliz. It would be interesting to know "what's really going on." I really do think Blizzard will continue to be a cash cow for years to come.

That's exactly why you sell it. Dump it off on someone for standard acquisition market rate of 2-4X revenue and then let them deal with catching lightning in a bottle a second time.
Yeah, not what I would call a good move. Blizzard will be making money for a long time to come even if the connoisseurs of gaming here at Blues have long turned up their noses at their products.

Vivendi has said it want to sell Activision/Blizzard? Got a link? I'd find that surprising with as much money as WoW continues to pull in.

Bynes is my new guilty pleasure, replacing Lohan. Lohan is on sabbatical at rehab, so I need my fix...

The games code is a total nightmare, I doubt he could if he wanted to. You should see how ridiculous it is to make even simple changes.
Interesting, but not surprising. It was his first major project, right?

So when are corporations going to be liable for lying to the consumer? I mean can they really say ANTHING they want without any repercussions whatsoever? Since when did that become standard practice?
I believe the legal term is, "puffery".

The fact that the vast majority neither no, nor care is why I remain fully convinced that the species is doomed sooner rather than later.

Meh, won't end before my lifetime so frak it.

Are you a betting man?
I am. Unfortunately assuming I'm right, there isn't a way for me to place a winning bet I would collect on.

It is only disappointing because I have hope that Blizzard with right themselves after the debacle that is D3. I guess I'll have to wait longer than I thought to see if they can...
