This vulnerability was used by them for their own government spying purposes over the security of the country's Internet infrastructure. So we know exactly who they think is more important if they have to choose between the public's security or their spying mission.

After all the revelations is anything significant happening to change or eliminate their behavior? Doesn't look like it to me.

Why not just play a CoD or CS game instead? Because this is free?

Because multiplayer-wise, those are "twitch" games and I sometimes prefer something a bit slower-paced with a bit of strategy to it. Not every game out there has to be exactly the same as CoD / CS to be fun.

That's the thing - it does look just like a twitch shooter ala CoD or CS. So why are you imply it's different and slower paced with more strategy? I see no strategy.

From wiki -
Strategy is a high level plan to achieve one or more goals under conditions of uncertainty.

I dunno, I'm intrigued. I like DayZ in concept. But, it runs so shittily, and controls equally badly, you can color me interested if they make this a user-friendly rip-off. I find myself not playing DayZ because I don't want to wrestle with the damn game.

This. I like the PS2 engine. After watching the vid I'm cautiously optimistic about it.

I've always thought that ARMA2's 'Real Virtuality 3' engine was holding DayZ back in many ways. Granted DayZ has a better gun and ballistics model but there's so much about it that just plain isn't good enough. BiS's ambitions seem too high for what that engine can do. I hope I'm wrong. I'm glad SOE is taking a solid jab at the genre and they have a much better MMO-capable engine with PS2. It's also a lot more player friendly (mostly in a good sense).

I have a feeling that if they did tax that 2.1 trillion, that these business couldn't handle that level of burden and our International businesses would either fold or leave the country altogether. Talk about a giant sucking sound...

Your problem with this is the people laughing at absurd behavior in security footage, not the naked drug addict rampaging around?

TBH, the employee commentary was the cherry on top of the swinging boobies ice-cream insanity cone dressed in a black thong on a hot Florida night. It's as if the incident isn't whacky enough, so they ratchet it up a few more ranks. Achievement unlocked.

Oh wow the 295X2! time to read reviews!! ty

Conclusion: Its probably loud as hell and hot running like most stock 200 Radeon Cards.

The benchmarks have been misleading as well since they pit the "295" against regular stock 780's rather than 780 Ti's, which are superior.

You obviously didn't read the Guru3D review.

if we are living is such a lefty, liberal, Marxist, communist, obamination... like so much of the conservative media puts forth...

Why are these giant corporations doing whatever they want with abandon?

It's called corporatism or corporate socialism. It's not free market. The two industries you cite, healthcare and telcom/cable industries are heavily reliant on their government partners. It's socialism for the corporations or as you put it, a corporate oligarchy. It's not free market nor is it capitalism.

Yes, there's a heavy element of both right and left wing socialism. The two need each other. The warfare+welfare state is here. More regulations will just bring more of it. You can't regulate socialism away. The corporate oligarchy need the regulations to stay in power. They write the regulations.

Had they just ended the boycot and opened up trade decades ago Castro would be long gone by now. The whole affair has been beyond ridiculous. You can trade with China, Vietnam, and dozens of other countries who have actual monsters heading them, up - as well as giving aid to the likes of NK, and other tyrants - but you can't trade with Cuba?

The only reason they want to destabilize Cuba is so they can go back to the bad ol' Batista days on that island. Close source of exploitable, cheap labour, and run their criminal empires with the gubment sticking its nose in.

This.

True, but they see those five million as a good benchmark to gauge market size and interest.

But is it really? Anyone who likes MMOs basically signs up for just about every beta around, because why not? You get to try new MMO # 12345 for free and see if you like it, even if you really very little interest in it.

Most betas get millions of "interested" people, and I'm pretty sure it's just the same group of millions that like MMOs and just want to try them all out.

Well from our perspective not exactly I suppose, but remember this is corporations and marketing analysts and bean counters getting together and having a big psychopathic orgy sex party over the data.

Five Million!! Whoa! big numberz!

With 5 million people registered for beta, itís clear that a large number of fans are eager to jump online and experience everything the game has to offer play an MMO for free to see if it's any good.

Let us know how many people subscribe after their first month is over.

True, but they see those five million as a good benchmark to gauge market size and interest. It wasn't a year+ long open beta like PoE or something so IMO that's a rather good number - 5 million. Also shows that PC is still a great platform to target for MMOs.

IMO the beta, as it was done, was sort of a mistake. The bugs were off-putting. They should have had a staggered, three day free pre-launch trial for everyone, or something.

News Comments > Battlefield 4 Rubber Banding Fixes and Server Upgrades Planned
9. Re: Battlefield 4 Rubber Banding Fixes and Server Upgrades Planned Apr 2, 2014, 11:29 LittleMe
 
they are "unhappy with our server performance," as they promise to look into issues causing rubber-banding (players repeatedly snapping back to a previous position on the map due to Internet lag) issues in Battlefield 4,

Blue the rubber banding in this case isn't caused by 'internet lag' but instead by the server not keeping up with client position updates, thus the server performance issue DICE is trying to address. The server gets out-of-sync with the player's PC or console if, for example, the server's CPU is over utilized.

Yes people think it's Internet lag but it's not, it's often server lag. As a player, it can be hard to tell what is causing rubber banding (or lag).

Most online games, to hide Internet latency, allow the client to go ahead and move even if the server doesn't process the movement information due to insufficient resources. This introduces rubber banding as a possibility since the client and server can get out-of-sync. The server will then warp the player back to where it thinks he/she is. That's the rubber banding..
