Eddie Snowden, the gift that keeps giving.

Don't expect much from the UN. Grandstanding to separate themselves from what they want to do to their own countries. They just don't want the US/UK having a disproportionate amount of data/information.

My idiotic state is going to have to more than double the income tax next year if they plan on keeping this thing going when the majority of people enrolling are on Medicaid who pay nothing.

In addition, the employer mandate will be devastating. It was recently explained to me after all the new regulations we are being forced into a choice of only FOUR plans, and they are expensive and suck shit. I can't move out of CT fast enough.

But we're all still racists somehow for talking about reality.

Reading your post reminds me that there's no way I'd hire/employ anyone in this country with all the high taxes and never ending regulations. No, way José.

CT burdened the country with Dodd. They should suffer greatly.

Loved the game, but the videos of PvP look ridiculous. I'd just like to be able to play the game missions coop. The controls and physics of the game just don't really lend themselves to PvP.

Wholeheartedly disagree.

The MP is such crazy and chaotic fun, the controls barely matter.

Especially with the addition of factions, this MP mod owns

+1. I find the controls just fine with m&k. Well, steering vehicles at high speed with keyboard is challenging but doable. I think there is a way to override the auto aim, too.

Yet the fastest cable offering available nationwide from Comcast is 105Mbps down and 20Mbps up. Time Warner Cable's top tier is 100Mbps. Cablevision's Optimum service tops out at 101Mbps.

Why would they risk big cost increases when they can sit idle on their duopoly?

Douglas said Comcast's current speeds already satisfy customer demand. Only 34 percent of Comcast residential customers choose a speed tier faster than 25Mbps, he said.

Why isn't Comcast ahead of the curve of consumer demand? Because they don't have to worry about a highly competitive marketplace? Duh?

Awesome! Steam integration wow. The previous tests were all fun. Would like to see some more advanced game modes besides the sandbox PvP. If the server is moddable (I think it is!) then we'll get all sorts of commmunity driven creativity and fun happening.

Yeah ESO is really the only thing I've seen people looking forward too. Aside from maybe Everquest Next, which won't be out for at least a year.

There's also Wildstar. It's similar to WoW but with more tactical combat. There's a decent amount of hype for it.

There were some interesting DICE replies in a BF4 Reddit thread in which many people were posting significant FPS gains after they unparked their CPU cores; DICE basically said they were looking into it while also stating that Win 8 makes better/more efficient use of CPU's than Win 7.

What I'm REALLY interested in seeing are comparisons with Mantle next month; I'm hoping it makes the Win 7 vs Win 8 debate a moo point.

Yes that's it. Now I remember I've been seeing this being said in various forums. The HardOCP comparison is an interesting idea but not thoroughly done or investigated.

Or maybe it's just because Win8 is a bit leaner (tablet optimized) and thus there are some more resources for the game.

Maybe if the Win7 install was tweaked by (stopping unnecessary services etc) it could be just as fast. Double checked and I don't see that they tweaked either OS besides optimizing for SSD.

If you install the SP1 Win7 disc, it is better optimized for SSD, unlike the original Win7 disc. Installing SP1 afterwards isn't the same.

I rooted for the underdog by pre-ordering it (RO:2) but I just couldn't get into it, I should probably give it another chance.

It's been improved a lot since release! Try it again!

Haven't they done enough damage already? He's calling for more government power to supposedly 'protect our privacy'? Are people that stupid to believe the authorities even after what we've learned thus far?

Well don't expect the Govt to come to your rescue. If you do, you're an idiot. Take actions for yourself and spread the word as did Ars. The customer is the boss. If people alter their buying decisions then LG will be forced to change for the better.

I can see a demand for routers and software that blocks this sort of big-brother spying traffic. The market will adjust.

There were a few moments where I got a distinct DOOM vibe in Rage. Not all the time of course, but it was a nice surprise to get that. IMO the game is good and certainly worth at least $5 (and more) for FPS fans. I hope they continue the series as long as they improve upon it.

You can trust us with your privacy, and we'll be sure to destroy it. But yes, you can be foolish enough to trust us. To save some face, we sued the government after ambitiously and surreptitiously cooperating with them for a long time now. You don't even know the half of what we've done.

That's the point of it. The Fed can't steal the value of them by inflating away the value. That's precisely why the coins are valuable. It's a decentralized currency. We don't want your stinking regulations!!!

I'm not really sure why the anti-government types have it out for the federal reserve. We haven't had unhealthy inflation in this country since the 70s. What other federal agency can claim 30 years of success?

The interesting thing here is that technology has created a speculative instrument that it is impossible to regulate. How long before hedge funds start encoding their assets in a similar way? Next time Wall Street tanks our economy, we might not even know who did it.

That's not true. We have suffered a lot of inflation as well as bubbles and bursts. The price inflation has also been hidden because they play very complicated games with how they do it and that we've exported our inflation because we have the petro-dollar. This is not anti-government. The Fed isn't the government! We aren't even allowed to audit them or even know who they are. No agency of government can over-rule them.

Ever considered that the seemingly high prices of the coins is because there's huge demand out there for a currency that can't be destroyed and manipulated as ours has? There's good reason to speculate on them.

Yes, I am implying that the situation is worse than we see now. The next bubble to pop I believe will be the value of our money, not real estate or the stock market as in the past. They've pumped trillions of money out of thin air into the economy and it's only a matter of time before the dam bursts and we have an awakening as to the shell game we've been playing with this fake money.

Please, take a few hours to learn more about these Fed notes (it's not really money) and the valid criticisms of the system, especially since we all spend so much of our lives working for them.
