Good on you, don't let that bigotry eat away from the inside. Let everyone know that you're setting the "new tone" right here and right now.

Beh. I can't say I'm surprised to see comments like this.

Beh.

Sexual harassment complaints are the easiest "get rich quick" schemes on the planet these days.

My company has been struggling to fill the desks, just not enough devs to go around.
Good heads up and interesting. I know a few people who were working at RIM who are out of work. I'll pass that along, housing in Windsor is dirt cheap right now and I know they'd have no problems moving and cross-border commuting. They already have their NEXUS cards.

I love to cook, but I'd never be a chef. Likewise, I love playing games, but I would never want to be involved in making them, unless I did it as a hobby. It would just take all the fun out of it.
Hah I dated a girl back a bunch of years ago who had done training in Swiss, Italian and Japanese. She could cook stuff that would make your brain melt for it's deliciousness. When she quit working in it, you know what her words were? "This job is nothing but a sweat shop, I hate working 14 hour days, and I hate this entire fucking industry."

Yeah it happens everywhere. Though to be honest, in a down turn economy, there's no such thing as normal. Every company will push what they couldn't get away with 5-6 years before hand because there is a glut of employees out there who will take the job if you quit.

Yep, you're right. NPD doesn't include Steam or similar services and as more of them grow NPD will continue to show a similar decline.

No hard price though.
Last rumor had it at $29-39 or so on internal SKU pricing.

Not sure why a coroner would ever make a judgement call like that - they are scientific and factual - the rest is just hearsay.
Because in some places being a corner requires no medical training. In the UK you can become one with only legal training(barrister/solicitor). Welcome to the micky mouse system.

The telegraph continuing it's fine downward slide into journalistic oblivion. Makes you wonder why it's not doing an investigative piece on why the corner used CoD instead of oh...everything else that was mentioned in this thread instead. Video games are just the easy way out when you're looking for a reasonable answer. I know, I was on a coroner's jury and this was one of the causes that was looked at. It was very easy for the people who didn't pay attention to say "that was it."

It's funny though, that if you look at the most popular mods outside of the usual nekkid bodies, armors, weapons and textures for skyrim, oblivion, and FO3/NV you'll see that they're mods that not only increase the difficulty of the enemies but increase the overall difficulty of things that are in the game itself. Such as hardcore mode.

So there's obviously a draw for not only hardcore, but even a higher level of difficulty. Hell when I played DX:HR I found DX mode stupidly easy, right around normal mode compared to the original DX.

The couple of female gamers out there will be happy. Otherwise who cares?
There's a lot more of them out there than you'd think. My better half spends more time gaming these days than I do, and my last three ex's were habitual gamers. They were also heavily into anime and manga as well. Oddly enough I can't honestly remember a GF who wasn't a gamer, even as far back as highschool. Then again, the last three were also heavily into cosplay and con's so who knows maybe they were just crazy.

Wait did I mention both my sisters are gamers? Yeah I know...doom walks among us, and it has ovaries. Sorry no they're both taken, so no luck for you scoring a gaming chick.

With Android apps it tells you what permissions you're giving the app by installing it. So people just need to learn to read before they install.
Yep. I'm constantly surprised at some of the updates that I've seen. A new update for google maps just came up for my phone, which includes tracking and 3 dozen(disable keylock on the phone, disable phone from sleeping, broadcast location, directly call numbers, records audio, manage accounts lists, read phone identifier information, including phone number and serial #, allow NCF and full internet access, discover all known accounts, google accounts on phone, and view all configured accounts) other things which weren't on the previous version. No thanks, I'll keep the old version.

But this is going to get interesting, because a lot of these apps are cached in Canada on their own server. Which means they fall under the privacy act. All it's going to take is someone getting angry enough to file a complaint over it up here.

Though that's not quite as good as one of the QR readers I ran across. Which wanted the ability to turn on datapacket networks, and make remote calls.

You pay 25% more because we like to take advantage of our neighbors. You get 25% less because people like there numbers to feel right, 763mL is just wrong.
No. Back in the 70's when this was done up in Canadaland, the price jumped by about 25%, and the quantity dropped by 25%. In the "great change-over" what you're talking about has nothing to do with it. Welcome to the great screw-over.

Yeah that's only because they've been trying realllllly hard to get the US to switch to metric for the last 25 years. Just remember if they ever do, you're going to end up getting screwed over just like we did up here. 25% less product, and pay 25% more.

It's Labour Day in Canada. Shame on you, Mash!
Bah I live within 150km of the US border. That whole "our/or" thing is interchangeable, it's why you can buy everything in two standards of measurement here still, and why grocery stores sell everything double stamped in lbs/kg, L/oz/Gal. Never mind that every digital thermometer they sell here comes in dual setting mode still. Hah.

Labor day in Canada too. We're lazy on both sides of the border today! The end of summer in Canada starts when the mosquito's no longer drag away dogs, that's usually the start of October.
