sigh ...

Tinfoil hat time, I guess.

The wording in the EULA is fairly obvious that it is only recording and transmitting things when the voice command is activated. It's saying, "we will transmit things you say directly to the TV in the context of a command, if you put personal information into the command, it may be transmitted", not "we will record passive conversations".

It's no different than google transmitting your search results to third parties, and I guarantee other manufacturers who make TVs with similar voice command features note a similar thing in their EULA.

It has the ability to pick up conversations and transmit it to third parties. That's cause for concern. There's nothing conspiratorial about it. And do you pay to use Google? No. Do you know Google already does this? Yes. So again, not the same thing. Not even close.

Lately I've been seeing this "Chimp level intelligence", every reference I've seen has always been way beyond that. So what online games do chimps play today? Where are they putting their money?

Seems reading between then lines it is just another way to say "if they don't have my view or ideals, somethings wrong with them".

Not so. It's not just an issue of perspective. Popular almost never equates to good. Take wine for example. Tasting is subjective but you still require a trained palate and a good amount of tasting behind you before you can really start to discern good from bad wine. Most people drink $10 plonk from the liquor store. They've never had a 20+ year old bottle of Bordeaux and therefore have no basis on which to compare 'good' vs. 'bad'. The same thing holds true for art, architecture, etc. There's a reason the expression 'half the people you meet are of below average intelligence' exists - some even estimate that to be as high as 75% of society below the median intelligence. So yes, there are a metric shit ton of actual dumb people out there, that's not being mean it's just a fact like death and taxes. In the case of Star Citizen I'd say it's more akin to the quotes ascribed to P.T. Barnum.

I never eaten any spicy food until I moved from the UK to the USA, Mexican food is now my favorite. I never understand people that eat mild spicy food when you have the option to eat the core from the sun. It hurts like hell but at least you know you're alive, for a few minutes anyway.

Because some of us prefer to actually taste our food perhaps? What's the point in eating molten food when all you get is heat? There are other ways to get an endorphin rush without self-torture. Thanks but I'll take a nice T-bone or porterhouse Chicago or Florentine style and a luscious cabernet sauvignon any day of the week.

BTW what music do you listen to when you eat hot food? Donna Summer's Hot Stuff, or Buster Poindexter's cover of Feeling Hot?

Well if we still regard the US Constitution as law, the "surveillance egime" still is and always will be unlawful until the 4th Amendment is repealed. Get on it Congress!

Yes, but that would mean you're living in a country with an actual government of the people, for the people, by the people, and we both know that's not true - if it ever was.

I sill have a a *very* difficult time believing money can be coming in this consistently on a project that's delivered virtually nothing so far. Something isn't adding up here. I suppose only time will tell.

The authors' claim that Craigslist can drive infectious disease rates seems rather surprising, so we asked Roheeni Saxena of Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health to look over the study. "Exploring the relationship between technology and epidemiology is important to understanding the spread of infection in a technology-driven world," Saxena told Ars. But she went on to say that the paper makes conclusions about causality that the data doesn't fully support: "The data does support the existence of some correlation between Craigslist introduction to a metropolitan area and an increase in HIV prevalence, but one of the central tenets of epidemiology is that correlation does not equal causation."

So then it's just a clickbait article isn't it?

QFT....

"FYI, this paper is *littered* with flaws and HIV experts are working on various responses.

As an example, the authors don't understand the difference between "incidence" and "prevalence," which is one of the most basic epidemiological concepts. Screwing this up, alone, is a major red flag.
If you look at their publication record, neither of the authors has any content expertise in health, epidemiology, or HIV/AIDS most specifically.

This is a stellar example of what happens when folks with cookbook statistical prowess wade into a completely foreign content area. "

I've never really had an issue with Steam Support, the few tickets I've had were answered within a business day and resolved without issue.

Greenmangaming's support on the other hand is terrible. They tried to screw me on a refund (their fault) which took 8 back and forths to resolve. It only ended in my favor because I refused to accept their BS reasoning and threatened a chargeback and complaint to their payment processor. That was a real wake up call to the price of cheap games there.

Weird, I've had nothing but good experiences with GMG. Once I cancelled a pre-purchase because they stated the keys wouldn't be coming until launch day - so no chance of a preload - I cancelled and got a refund no problem. And there were one or two other things over the years, both resolved quickly and to my satisfaction. I'm on the side of saying Steam support sucks however.

Bobbob invites you to live with him in SoCal. If you ask nicely he'll probably even sponsor your visa.

Fingerscrossed

I've always wanted to hang out in Oxnard - simply because I like saying Oxnard. It's almost like saying Ox nads.

Sounds like that's about right for most EA customers, which is why I avoid 99% of EA games. So it works out for both of us.

But do you really avoid 99%. How many did you play this past year?

I played DAI and that's it. I don't play BF, Sims, their sports games, their MMOs, just what Bioware makes. Even then I waited for deep discounts on most of their stuff. In fact DAI and the first Mass Effect are the only two games I bought day one over the last 5 or so years. So yeah. I wasn't exaggerating.

This sounds more like something that exists solely to benefit publishers so they can data-mine what people are looking at and use it for sales later on. I see zero point to this - especially at $200. $200 are you effing kidding me? What's next anus tracking? See how many times your average gamer clenches his anus over the course of a play session?
