I think you guys are missing the point.
I think they are misrepresenting the difficulty of the game, based on their own video of the game play.

The description doesn't seem to match the video, looks like after you initially get used to the controls you'll be lasting a lot longer than four seconds each time. The game play shown has promise, might be worth getting when they finish.

I have to say, I was amused by the opening scene with the "I'm going to Jackson" -- and I really don't like country music.

Yep, used that for a few years now, and can't imagine not having it. Wonderful app!

Yep, use it on my Win7 box at home.

Yes, I watched Defiance. Care to be more explicit on why you disliked it so much? Was it great? No. But it seemed fine to me. However, I've learned over time that I seem to be more willing to suspend my disbelief and logic than most. I mean, I just try to enjoy the show, I don't try to find things wrong with it.

Interstellar travel would/will simply reduce the odds of complete extinction of the species. By our own hand or by a planet wide event like a major asteroid strike.

Ha! The Bitcoin story is somewhat amusing. I've yet to use them myself but I've been keeping my eye out for news about them. It will be interesting to see how it plays out in the long haul...

Any Path of Exile players here?
I am playing, but I'm not in hardcore. I tried starting there based on a suggestion by someone here but apparently either I suck at this game or I'm doing something terribly wrong. I built a Ranger to level 30 and thought I had figured things out. Started another Ranger which I got to 30 with more health, mana, and roughly the same DPS -- and I died to the final act 2 boss four times while killing him. *shrug*

Everything was down in 2009. In March of 2009 you could have bought CBS stock for under $3.50, today it is trading over $46. I doubt that's the most extreme example, just one I happen to have noticed.

Edit: It looks like Ford got down to about $1.43...

I'm torn on the idea of getting TV a la carte -- on the one hand it would mean I could order what I want and avoid all the stuff I don't. On the other hand, there are probably a lot more people watching HSN than the stuff I like/watch. So they are actually supporting my viewing habits.

I like the idea, but I fear the possible consequences to the TV I enjoy.

At one point one the HR people is beating around the bush for at least 5 minutes literally trying to couch this before someone said, 'Just fucking spit it out already, we're canned right?' And she still proceeded to lay the HR BS on us at which point most of us just got up and walked out.

You'll enjoy this... one of the guys who got laid off here had his ADP email notice turned on. The result of this (at least at my company) is every Wednesday before a Friday payday, you get an email notifying you the "pay stub" is available. So, on Wednesday he gets the notice, and logs into ADP to look at it and sees the severance payment. But he doesn't know what it is because the office hasn't been notified yet. Asks his boss about it -- the boss is clueless also. They call the next boss up (a VP) who tells them in a business friendly way, "Oh yeah, you are both laid off." This VP was scheduled to fly to the city to give the news in person, but since the cat is out of the bag, he cancels the trip. Dozey

Firing people to ensure the best games for players eh? Yeah. Sure.
Substitute "products" for "games", "customers" for "gamers" and you get something very close to what one of my company's VPs said Wednesday when about 50 people got laid off here. Thankfully, I dodged the bullet, again (been dodging them for about 10 years now..). It's just standard HR rhetoric, it doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the actual reasons for the reductions.
