I get the feeling that the AP is testing the waters with this lawsuit. At first I was going to say "Do the ends justify the means?"" but in this case, from what we're told, this doesn't seem like they committed a serious breach of public trust. It looks as if it was explicitly targeted at one person, but who knows..

Overall Dying Light >> Dead Island, but I do miss being able to craft guns ala Dead Island's Electric/Fire Pistols, etc.

Yes I like Dead Island's crafting system too. Sad to hear that was not expanded in DL, but I will still buy the latter of course.

That's the norm. Give an inch, take a mile. What interest do they have in relinquishing powers? They are behaving as do slave owners.

Its a symptom of deeper issue - the mindset of a socialist society. It's all wrapped up in Utopian good intended sounding rhetoric, "Security and prosperity." Fear is exploited against us during the process too. Carrot and stick lies to lead us.

I think in Bethesda's case, being able to walk away from dialog is a good thing. Really.

But the boy didn't have dirt on him, therefore he was a budding PC gamer. Maybe the kite flew like that after he typed a cheat code on his keyboard such as PCMR.

I love how the wind in the grass and trees looked.

Whereas multi-trillion dollar scandals and the ongoing devaluing (theft) in relation to the debt notes was are obligated to use are swept under the rug.

Gears of Doom to Tool-esque music.. Dodged a bullet. Is it so hard to actually, you know, look at the original doom maps/graphics and modernize its vision of hell to current levels? I would think not that hard but...

Yes. Well the word Democracy falls short. The term 'Republic' means 'government of the people'. We were founded as such. "To the republic for which it stands", not 'To the Democracy for which it stands.' I agree though, we are now 'of the globalist corporations.' Not all corporations, but the ones that are politically connected and partnered.

Wikipedia on Republic: "The first ten amendments to the Constitution, called the United States Bill of Rights, guaranteed certain natural rights fundamental to republican ideals that justified the Revolution."

Back then, republicans were liberals. It's a deep and very copmlex topic. Nevertheless, we are not a democracy though we do have democratic electoral system.

Very nice. Haven't played the game yet. The pastures and new buggy addition give a Far Cry 2 vibe, but zombies instead of tribal thugs obv.. Will buy, at a reasonable sale price.

They said the same thing about horse transportation industry and we used to be about 96% farmers. Somehow we survived. Change is bad only if new opportunities are denied.

There's a real place for a strong privacy lockdown app market for Widnows 10! Lots of money to be made selling it.

Carriers urge FCC to give them some more fat subsidies and govt sponsored monopolies so they'll lay fiber.

This. Hey I'd lay fiber here if I got a government guarantee'd monopoly, too. That's a license to extort!

Strawman argument. Would you let Microsoft into your home and rummage through your stuff and log everything and send that information to whomever they want for any reason and keep that information? I doubt it! But you'd call someone who doesn't want that in the digital sense paranoid?


If you put a sniffer on your network you will see they have been doing this for years without common knowledge. Every couple hours your Winbox sends info to msft. More than just a ping/pong conversation.

You're lumping it all together but there are differences. Okay so Win7 is calling the mother ship at MSFT but it seems far more intrusive with W10 in how it's likely collecting all your web traffic, conversations in the room, everything we type, everything we buy, and could be sending an index of all of your files (and the files themselves) to them. I don't see how you imply makes it nothing new. It is an order of magnitude more intrusive.

edit: not only just that data, but seems to give them outright ownership of your data on your own PC and let them use it in any way they desire. Am I wrong?

I haven't dumped the traffic myself yet but I will probably do that later today. I suspect its much ado about nothing, peoples phones and search engine use gather way more information on them every day. That being said I see the potential for abuse there and think it should be closely watched.

Because they can and will update the software, what it's capturing today is only part of the picture. The EULA seems to give a very wide lateral as to what they can do on our devices going forward. It is cause for concern and diligence on our part.

Six+ months of fixing and polish is exactly what Bethesda needs to do considering their track record. Count me optimistic and hopeful. They've had four years since Skyrim. Has their staffing count increased since Skyrim? How many man/woman/dog hours have gone into F4 compared with Skyrim?
