Everyone got their wish with the Patriots punishment, 4 games, some draft picks and a million bucks is way harsher than I expected.

Wow, that's worse than if he'd punched out his wife! I guess the NFL really does take the game seriously!

wife got one of the new ipad airs a year+ ago, for the last 6 months it randomly doesn't boot. it seems to not want to boot if the battery is both too full, or too empty.

it mostly sits unused trying to find it's ideal state after being charged and unplugged, waiting for it to discharge enough on it's own to be booted, but then usually forgotten until weeks later when it's magically fully discharged into the ether, and also won't boot.

and yes, booting only occurs when using the home + power button trick, and even then takes several tries.

I've noticed my Galtab gets funky with random reboots and shutdowns when it has too much stuff loaded onto it. You might want to factory refresh it, then only load the stuff you need. It goes without saying to pull all the photos, etc. you want off of it first.

I hope she does win her lawsuit. My company is trying to do the same thing with our vehicles and phones. I've always maintained that using company resources for personal use is bad even if and especially if the company says it's ok. I was already in a position where I don't need the vehicle or phone while I'm off the clock, but a lot of my coworkers can't afford an alternative.

Right, while I agree the simple solution is to turn the phone off once she's done with work, and then turn it on again in the morning, I get why people would leave it on all the time and forego a personal device. Also, so companies require you leave your company device on all the time in order to receive off-hour messages.

Outside of Game of Thrones, HBO is just another shitty network which spams awful movies from what I can tell after subscribing to their network a month or so ago. It'd be nice if they at least re-ran their older series but nope, here's You Don't Know Jack (which is a good movie) for the fortieth time in week.

It's not worth it even on the deal I received and I'll likely cancel.

Don't you have access to the entire catalog via HBO Go?

That's not what Skynet in the movies was designed to be Cutter. It only took that path when they tried to shut it down.

Unless you count T3 where it was evil from the start. I totally forgive you if you don't count T3.

Arnold's commentary on T3 is better than the actual movie itself.

Save the time, its not very good. Rudimentary space travel flick with a low budget, poor characterization and a shitty filming style.

Nearly as good as Interstellar. Not the highest bar, I know.

Sure it was. And as we all know, saying 'it's just a joke' after the fact makes things okay, right? Especially by people obsessed with "the success of women".
It's quite obviously a joke, from the wording ("female overlords"), the double-entendre with "bitch," and the hyperbolic premise. That was before the fact, not after. Sorry you didn't get it.

Because it's not possible whatsoever for there to be any bias against them, in any meaningful way - right?

In other news, what's up with black men? Look at those unemployment rates. Talk about lazy. You'd think they'd at least work hard enough to pay for all those abortions.

Hold on - 'that was a joke'. That makes the previous sentiment completely okay!

Right?

Not a joke. Unlike InBlack's comment, you're not describing a future hypothetical situation in a humorous way that is likely never to come to pass, you're describing the current situation complete with racial stereotypes with no humor at all. It is Rush Limbaugh to InBlack's Robin Williams.

P.S. The men "failing" article was an attack on a new study about online porn and video games, and nothing to do with feminism. I am starting to lose faith that article links can stand alone, and I may have to start doing more summarizing of what they contain. I prefer to steer readers toward the source of content, and am not a fan of sites rewriting perfectly good stories to hog traffic, but it seems to be a disservice to allow vague headlines to derail topics.

Of course you are entitled to take the discussions wherever you want, but I am going to have to take some responsibility for this sort of recurring confusion.

Eh, I thought the article was pretty much about how much of a patriarchal jerk Philip Zimbardo was (and yes, I feel his prison study is absolutely a valuable piece of research. Humans are complex, y'know?). All of my bullet points in comment 2. came right from the article itself. The pr0n and games stuff was just a small part of it.

The Kotaku review was more tempered, but still very positive and gave it an enthusiastic rec.

Bloodstained- Ritual of the Night by Koji Igarashi Kickstarter.

Wow >200% funded in 24 hours.

Also, will come out on PC and have local coop.

Lastly, I love the overly dramatic anime-esque appeal in his speech: "Kimidachi no kyoryoku ha shitsuyo nan da!" (Your support is so important!)

FCC shoots down petitions to delay open internet rules.

I'm still surprised when the government continues to come down on the side of an open internet. Yes, there are powerful companies advocating for it (Google, MS, Apple, etc.) but there are also powerful companies against it (Comcast, TWC, Verizon, AT&T, etc.). Given that the average person benefits, it's working out well.

Don't be too surprised. While the FCC is seemingly on "our" side battling with the cable giants, on the other side Congress is trying to pass new legislation called TPP, which is like SOPA on steroids. The senate votes on this tomorrow.

Well, Obama is trying to fast track the TPP and get congress to approve the fast track. Thing is, Warren, Sanders, and Brown are all opposed. When you've got some of the clearest-thinking, least corporate members of the Senate opposing a trade deal, it makes ears and hackles perk up.

Hey Obama, if the TPP is so great, why not just make it public? Why all the secrecy? "Trust me!" is a bullshit answer.

I think the most interesting thing is how in newer games since the NVidia 9-series has been released have been tweaked for Maxwell only, but 6 and 7-series (Kepler) have not been tweaked. They mentioned they've seen several games this year where a 960 beats a 780, whereas games before the 9-series was released the 780 beats the 960 easily.

if what i've read about the new radeons is true, that's the upgrade route to take. supposedly revolutionary new memory architecture that's 6x faster than current as opposed to the incremental steps we're taking with GDDRx. also the cards themselves are going to be much smaller since all the memory will be stacked on top of the GPU. and it comes out midsummer as opposed to the next gen geforce which supposedly wont hit till 2016.

Cool, sounds interesting. I've not read anything on the new AMD cards. I'm still happy with my 670GTX, and I'm not planning to upgrade until the Oculus is available (or a competitor) which is early next year, so hopefully we can see how the new AMDs perform then.

Colour me intrigued. That it has dodos is a plus. It's it's MP only then it's over before it even began however. The animation for the models looks pretty bad atm too.


Love how they're shooting all the dodos. Ostensibly for food. Just like real life.

It's a good point that a lot of these are probably due to it being bundled with video cards, but still that's a lot of preorders.

Supposedly all the fault of the other car, not the self-driving.

Also, the vast majority were minor accidents, the kind that usually go unreported when they happen between to actual people, so it's hard to know if the accident rate is greater or less than human drivers. Regardless, self driving cars are the future.

The players on Team Liquid, a professional League of Legends team, practice for a minimum of 50 hours per week and most play the game far more.

Talk about taking the fun out of something.
