Okay I'm sorry but I don't understand the specifics of this list. I see... a bunch of Western European nations, some Eastern European-ish nations that are coming along nicely, some financially strong and neutral nations (UAE and Caymans), some non-European nations with strong ties to the UK, and tons of anonymous regions inside countries.

I also see Canada, Mexico, and "North America"

Did they just replace "United States" with "North America"? Or do they mean all of NA? If so, why list Mexico and Canada?

And yes I am American and have some personal bias in wanting to know if my nation is specifically served but seriously, that's a weird list.

Well, obviously "United States" has become a dirty word with all the revelations of late.

It's a CRPG? Looks like an adventure point and click to me.

Yeah, they're traditional adventure games, and pretty good too. I've got the Blackwell Deception.

Pentagon unveils life-size 'Atlas' rescue robot.

1. Let me know when they make a life sized Atlas like this.
I'd be more interested in a robot like this.

It's coming, it's coming.

Investors throw $3 million at the Virtuix Omni treadmill.

I think they're cool. I'd consider one if I had a bigger place.

The sandboxing in crome does not provide extra security.... it's snakeoil pr bullshit... so Firefox it is.

(By the way, running a browser in a real sandbox only protects you if you RESET the sandbox after use, and when you do that, it does add to your security indeed). But you pay the price for that with whatever security holes the sandbox has. And they have holes like any other software....

Well, true, but since so few people run browsers in sandboxes, it's much less likely that hackers are coding for that. You get a lot more return on investment exploiting holes in the browsers than holes in the sandbox.

At least with Russia you have one guy in charge, everyone can point to him and say HE IS THE MAN IN CHARGE. When shit goes wrong he is the guy people will point fingers at, when things go right he is the guy who gets the credit.

In the US when shit goes wrong who exactly will get the blame? Obama? Hahahahh, yeah sure, while the real powerholders stay in the shadows and the american voters keep the illusion of democracy alive.

Wow, really? You're defending a defacto dictator? When you criticize the man in charge in Russia, you end up dead, or you end up in the gulag. There is no dissent or blame when things are wrong in Russia.

I'm sure Khodorovsky was no angel, no CEO is (look at how they went after Qwest CEO Joe Nacchio after he insisted the NSA provide a warrant for their data collection). However, A) he wasn't investigated until he started getting involved in politics and B) his trial was rigged, according to the judges who adjudicated it. That's a complete abuse of power.

Looks excellent, though I'm pretty sure that at least half of that trailer was pre-rendered.

If it handles/drives well, I'm definitely signing up.
Not sure about that prerendered stuff, the game does look really good.

The disclaimer at the start of the trailer says all footage is from in-game.

I agree. Any ISP must divest itself of any media content delivery. It's an inherent conflict of interest. The gov't needs to step in and make this happen.

Good news everybody! They're doing the exact opposite and rolling over to the pay2win side, as per the ars article posted on the current update here.

Yeah, just saw that. It's obvious the government is no longer making decisions in the best interest of the people.

The only reason this problem exists at all is because THERE IS NO COMPETITION IN INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDERS. There are two, maybe three options if you're lucky. That's why they can get away with this shit.

But having Tom Wheeler as head of the FCC, this was inevitable. Welcome to the Oligarcy. Funny that this article from Princeton last week scientifically concludes the same thing that we've been talking about for a couple years now.

If HBO is too stupid to not offer a la carte then it's their own damn fault.

This is a clever way of addressing the availability issue without threatening their cable revenue. If they offered this directly on their own, then they cannibalize cable revenue and piss off cable companies who rely on bundling channels for revenue. This way, they can make them easily and (relatively) cheaply available while not threatening those other avenues directly. It's a good move.

Hmmm. So if I agree with the article, we have established there is a male privilege. If I disagree, according to the author, I'm simply proving that I'm in denial and that their is a male privilege. One of those times that the phrase "begging the question" is appropriate.

So, those 25 things that he listed, you don't think those are problems? Or you don't think those things happen regularly?

Seriously, the type and amount of harassment Sarkeesian received for merely wishing to investigate and document tropes vs. women in video games validated this problem.

Hopefully it looks more like Black Ops and less like Ghosts. Ghosts was atrocious. Boxy pixel mess and washed out colors...

PORES, MAN! DID YOU NOT SEE THE PORES???
