I agree there's something to be said for that. It's like buying a new car and the dealer telling you you're not allowed to ever sell it. It's not like HB isn't making their money. No one is technically stealing anything here.


While I agree with you, you gotta sympathize a bit with the game companies who felt they were doing something good for charity letting their games go for pennies only to be bent over the table.

So you're telling me it is possible to get off the no fly list.

Not for you though. Not after they've read what you've written here.

Jupiter Ascending looks cool. Glad to have new sci fi IP. Had to stop the trailer mid way though. I should know better by now, but I hate how much they show in trailers these days. Pisses me off to no end.

UK set to make ripping your CDs and DVDs legal.

About fucking time.


Now that they are obsolete?

Nah, just in time to rip 'em to your 3 TB hard drive and toss the disks. Frees up a lot of shelf space.

While DVD rips look pixelicious on my big screen, they look fine on my tablet, and are great for watching in bed or on a flight or whatever.

Here's hoping Aereo emerges victorious and Apple doesn't.

Love Aereo...great convenience...they're doing nothing wrong.

And as for Apple...eBook pricing in general frequently borders on the criminal, e.g. with Kindle prices being only slightly lower than the physical books in many instances, particularly with technical volumes.

Kind of like Gamestop used games.

They you hire a CEO from the outside who shit all over that by donating to support prop 8 and pro-prop 8 politicians.

He's the co-founder of Mozilla, not to mention the author of Javascript and was promoted from within. I get the whole concept behind a CEO is supposed to represent a company and its image but where he's never had any problems so far. Someone went and dug up his political donations, likely due to a personal or professional vendetta.

Sorry, thought I read that he'd been brought in from the outside to help boost FF mobile. Must have misread. Regardless, it seemed to me obvious why there's a backlash. If it had been something he'd done 20 years ago, nothing probably would have happened, but prop 8 was a pretty divisive issue. The pain from that wound has yet to heal. We may not know the gritty details, but I don't think there's some alternate reason that this happened. That was my main point, anyway.

Well... the videos on the game's site look interesting. I hope these folks don't fuck this one up like the last 2 Alien games.

I assume you're talking about A:CM and AvP. While A:CM is pretty universally reviled, I'd like to know what you didn't like about AvP. I thought it was pretty good, both SP and multi. Played the PC version, of course.

I wonder what really happened at Mozilla...

It seems pretty obvious. You have a non-profit company dedicated to the freedom and equality of the web. The people that work there do so because they believe in that core mission, and most of them in those values in general. Said company is located in the city where the gay rights movement started, in one of the most liberal states in the nation. Said company is also part of an industry populated with youthful, liberal idealists in general.

They you hire a CEO from the outside who shit all over that by donating to support prop 8 and pro-prop 8 politicians. I think the only thing we're not seeing is the internal power struggle that went on behind the scenes opposing him. The opponents lost, and feel so strongly about their convictions that they're taking this public action to highlight it.

5. Re: Netflix users on Verizon and AT&T get raw deal, have little reason for hope Mar 29, 2014, 21:47 jdreyer

Several weeks ago my Netflix streaming quality had become increasingly poor, but coincidently it has recently improved (to normal) since the 'so called' negotiations between Verizon and Netflix commenced. Regardless, another monthly fee hike isn't too far away, as the only ones that will get screwed in the end are the consumers.


You really should be thankful for Verizon's efficiency. Since Netflix wasn't paying them, they didn't have enough money to upgrade their infrastructure, so their peering connections were oversaturated. But as soon as Netflix started paying them, they were able to purchase, install, troubleshoot, and activate the new peering connections relieving the overflow and dropped network packets WITHING A COUPLE OF DAYS. It's superhuman. Or magic. That's how much they care.

I'm sure the list is correct, and everyone who is on there deserves to be on there. I'm surprised that one person got taken off. Besides, they don't HAVE to fly. There are plenty of other ways to travel. For example, by foot.

I had to read that first sentence twice, as I thought you were serious the first time...

Meat is not what makes you fat, it's all the damn spuds and bread.

And for those of you wondering what was going on around the time of Quakecon 98, here's a sample. This CNN story about game engines still resolves to cnn.com, and talks about Prey of all things which didn't come out until 7 years after that.

Stories on classic games like Tie Fighter, Rainbow Six, Descent 3, Freespace, Half Life, Shogo, Heretic II, and of course Quake II show what a great games were available back then. Although there are stories about games that didn't turn out so well like Daikatana and Trespasser. I think Trespasser bit off a bit more than it could chew.
