What? If investors do actually believe that Riccitiello is at fault for the falling share prices then EA's stock will rise tomorrow, not fall.
That didn't happen the last time. The last time the stock price dumped nearly $3 over a 2mo period, and is down nearly $7 in a 4mo period. Check the market yourself, infact check yesterdays trades, there was plenty of heavy selling with some late day buying of EA stocks up 0.09% in anticipation of tomorrows early buys and later selling.

Even rumors like these can have serious repercussions. Should be fun watching EA stock tomorrow.
Yep. I did say about 6mo ago that it would be about time to snag some EA stock, should it tank, and the EA CEO go, it would be a good time to pick up some shares, if they're low enough.

Valve must make a huge amount. Assuming the major publishers negotiate better deals than the standard 30% cut, I'd imagine Valve is still taking 20% of the sale price for themselves and the operating costs will be a fraction of that. Given the number of years that Steam has been going - and doing incredibly well - I'd assume they have a decent stockpile of money.
20-30% might be right down generous of Valve. Most of the big Japanese digital sites are in the 45-60% range.

They've already announced that they'll just ignore Parliament on this one.

EU Commissioner Reveals He Will Simply Ignore Any Rejection Of ACTA By European Parliament Next Week

The upper body rules by executive fiat, and overrides the elected parliament all the time. Heck they've already thrown out two elected government's(Greece and Italy) already. Not a big surprise here.

Just google "Final Fantasy VII BOOTLEG"(or look on the show more on the video) There's just way, way, way, way too much stuff to post in terms of the mods, and crap to download to bring the graphics upto snuff. But this here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8e18Ay2kJE4

Is what it looks like with the older version, not counting the music update. New version I think 0039 ? Is going up soonish.

It'll never happen in this country (the U.S.). Valve simply has too much money; they could buy any judge ten times over.
Does valve really care though? Or is it a problem with the publishers that are using steam.

$39.99 is a decent price but I still don't feel the need to upgrade from win7.
Only if it's $399.99 to pay me to take the PoS.

Now the real question is, are they going to be offering rebates to people who live in countries with low bandwidth caps? Nothing like blowing $60 on a game, and another $30 for data charges.

No, you actually have to go "purchase" it from the add-ons. It doesn't get added automatically. At least it didn't for me yesterday, and neither did it for anyone on the BSN forum. There were tons of posts on "How do I get it???"

Maybe they changed it, I dunno. It was released the same way as their MP DLC, where you have to "buy" it through the add-on store.

Creston
They stuck a big giant thing on the screen yesterday telling people how to get it after getting flooded with complaints including step-by-step instructions. Origin for all things is pretty piss poor at "how to find" even the more basic stuff.

Hopefully they're also working on another patch for Skyrim to fix the dialog problems they caused with the last one.
Yeah last patch really fuged up alot of scripts. Wordwall finding via Arngeir, courier seems to bug out a lot more. Companion script for "Proving Honor" breaks nearly every time(fixable by using setstage C02 0) on the PC at least, and on the list goes. Added some good stuff but the patch was kinda a mess.

Why do conservatives have such a problem with science? Of 1000s of studies, published 99% support anthropomorphic global warming. 1% don't. You guys really do support the 1%. Please go buy beachfront property in FL and let us know how that works out for you in 30 years.

Put it another way: would you not fire a doctor who tried to fix you using leeches and prayer instead of modern surgical techniques? 99% of published studies show that modern surgical techniques are more effective than leeches and prayer. Are you really going to say you shouldn't fire the doctor for not being a good little AMA douche?

This isn't to single out conservatives exclusively. There are plenty of anti-science libs, like the anti-vaccine kooks.
Should be fine. Since most of the studies go back to several studies with badly formulated data. Yamal for instance, when not cherry picked doesn't reflect the data as was presented. Universities from China, Japan and Canada have tried to recreate the hockey stick and have failed. So have independent scientists. Doesn't help either when the scientists themselves refuse to release the data, or have 'lost' the data, or have deliberately deleted the data, or are stonewalling the data.

No no. That speaks of agenda's and agenda's aren't science. That's orthodoxy, you know. Remember that thing you learned in World History class, about the Catholic Church and Indulgences? Now you remember that thing about Carbon Credits and paying people to make you feel better?

So, lets not forget that they've been saying that the arctic would be free of ice this year, um 20 years ago. Or that there would be no ice on various mountains, or all the glaciers would be gone. Or a variety of other things. Let's not forget that the MET office for example was saying that there would be no more snow in the UK, but they got snow last year. Let's not pretend either that we don't have even a fundamental understanding of the mechanisms of weather in the longterm itself, but we're trying to understand climate.

Science is fine, what most conservatives believe is that indeed there is global warming. What they don't believe is that it's manmade. What they do believe is that it's either natural in some form, or there's a mechanism that's missing. Seeing as how this rock has been much warmer with CO2 levels 40x higher, and life was flourishing. Well until a giant meteor hit.

The news headline should read: Professor freed to find university that teaches climate change skepticism. Fox's favorite toy, the free market, will surely solve his unemployment problem.
What was that? I believe you just said that only echo chambers in education are the best solution to enriching the minds instead of challenging ideas and orthodoxy.

Did you even sell anything? Gems aren't selling at all. Commodities have been disabled since the RMAH launch, you can't sell gems or gold yet.
I'm sure you can figure out that there are grey market methods to selling anything. And since gems only made up around 13% of what I sold, I can't say it made much of a point to make any difference to explain. Then again I was late to that game. People were already prolific in that area. Too much hassle for too little gain, with too much of a possibility of other problems.
