Yeesh, about that suicidal pilot:

Lubitz also appears to have kept from his employer that he suffered from a psychiatric disorder and was being treated “by several neurologists and psychiatrists,” according to a Bloomberg source.

Maybe there are some cases where medical records shouldn't be strictly between a patient and doctor?

EA worker on EA website says working at EA is great?

They've won awards for being a great place to work, so it doesn't surprise me. Treating your customers shitty and your employees great isn't mutually inclusive.

After a hit game, indie developers struggle to replicate success - The Verge.

Funny that the first guy's name is "Bithell" since he's literally in bit Hell.

I didn't pick up OR DV2 because of the screendoor effect. I think 1440P is probably the minumum you can get away with, and obviously 4K is ideal.

What we haven't seen yet is anyone actually playing a game in any VR system to date for an average 2-3 hour session. That is what will tell the tale and prove whether VR is just a warmed-over 1990's advertising gimmick designed to raise working capital, or whether it will be something people will want to buy and use themselves. My opinion right now is that "VR" is scheduled to be slightly less popular than stereoscopy "3d" turned out to be in computer gaming--and that's only assuming the VR goggles can ever be made as light-weight and as non-restrictive as the stereoscopy glasses. I'm not a stereoscopy fan, but at least control issues are much less an issue than is the case with VR goggles.

Walt, Ars played E:D for 5 hours with the rift. Here's the story.

So I'm riding on the South Bay Bicycle Path - a part of my 20 to 30 mile daily bike ride -- and I suddenly notice the sand is full people with very pale skin (no tan). It can only mean one tragic thing ... Spring Break! Damn it, that means a lot people will be ignoring the signs and walking on the bike path!

oh a san diegan ey? i knew there was something unseemly about you, damn southern yokels haha.

I think Bobbob lives in Palos Verdes actually.

Oh how times have changed.....

Now just about every airline nickels and dimes you at every turn and have taken a lot of the enjoyment out of flying.

Flew Delta recently and they had a screen at every seat with hundreds of free movies and TV shows, both classics and new ones like Birdman, Whiplash, American Sniper, GotG, and a bunch of others. Mostly uncensored as far as I could tell. Plugged in my noise-cancelling headset and was good to go.

They judge their success by metacritic? Oh... OH GOD!

*RUNS AWAY SCREAMING*

Publishers often write that into the developer's contract: $xxx bonus for a Metacritic rating above 85%, double if it's above 92%, etc.

My wife wanted me to watch the Kardasians with her, once. Once.

Just comment a few times like "Damn that's a nice ass!" and she'll stop asking forever.

Wouldn't work with me. My wife said Kim has a fat ass.

I am lucky enough to have a great wife that doesn't watch any of that shit. Instead she says "Hay didn't we miss Blacklist, Banshee, Archer, and (insert another awesome show here". I am a lucky man.

AND she lets you play tons of games, AND she takes care of you when you break your hand. Count your lucky stars!

I'm waiting to see what materializes.

the idea of Trek has always been grand, but i've always found the implementation to be rather bland and uninspiring, with the exception of a few eps here and there. to me there's no surprise that it never lasts - until they get writers and producers that really embrace the inspirational human side of the show, it'll just remain schlocky scifi that most people ignore. that's why i always hated it when enterprise and crew went down the warpath with alien race A, B, or C. it abandoned what made it potentially great in favor of cheap drama.

It would be awesome if they did it like Game of Thrones, with say maybe a 10-12 episodes per year, but each of higher quality. I think the show suffered when they had to put out 24 per year. And as long as they're emulating GoT, maybe they can add some bewbs.

I did end up watching most of Grey's Anatomy with my wife, her favorite show. There were some likable things in there like some sharp dialog and some of the moral medical quandaries.

Speaking of TV, David Simon, creator of "Homicide," "The Wire," and "Treme" sat down to discuss "The Wire" and the war on drugs with the president yesterday. While I've had my issues with Obama (use of drones, attacking whistleblowers, domestic spying) I'm glad to see that he has got a solid grasp of this issue.

Also, (spoiler) his favorite character from The Wire is Omar

Leaked Contract: Amazon Makes Warehouse Workers Sign 18-Month Non-Compete Agreements.

That's fucking evil. These aren't employees with sensitive knowledge of Amazon's inner workings. They're just grunts. I'm sure something like this would never stand up in court, but of course someone making $12 an hour would never take them to court. It's just intimidation, pure and simple.
