I feel bad for that Lavabit guy, shutting down his entire business rather than give the gov't carte blanche.
Says something about the FBI in general. If they can force a private company to try and do this, it means that nearly all SSL certificates aren't worth anything.

Gee there Red Cross, most gamers not only have plenty of disposable income, but regularly donate to worthy causes. I guess they really want to tick people off so their donation pool dry's up.

Urm... Finish Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk first, k? plz? How many games are you guys going to be working on simultaneously?
Well if they're getting close to finishing out Witcher 3 or the cyberpunk game, Witcher 3 which is supposed to be out next year(probably early), and the Cyberpunk game in 2015. This shouldn't be too much of a surprise. Better that they have new contracts lined up to keep them working, instead of floundering and the studio going under.

I haven't had a chance to play the first one yet. Well I'm sure that I'll have some free time the next 3 months while on vacation.

Oh someone was looking for a new videocard. Newegg has the XFX Double D 7950 on for $194/w rebate. Includes 4 games.

Fuck a duck! That's scary about Sysco. Virtually every restaurant uses them to a greater or lesser degree. If all of that is true the US and Canadian governments need to step in and kick some major ass pronto!

I'm not really surprised at this. Not in the least, I had friends who worked at Sysco who complained about this over a decade ago and were ignored by inspectors. I've lost touch with said friends, most are in western canada now driving for the oil patch. But, anyone who knows someone in the transportation industry whether it be food, chemicals, or even raw materials will tell you that "shady shit" does indeed go on, and it doesn't matter where or what.

But according to the report officials on both sides of the border are now investigating, which is good.

password locks or not, there are quite a few game apps out there that purposely are designed to get as much money as possible from you as easily as possible.
Yeah, still not seeing a problem here. If it's not illegal, then I couldn't care less. And ethical, meh. Ethical comes down to each persons opinion.

Many years ago, my parents used to lock us (their kids) out of HBO when I was young. My brother found the password or guessed it or something, and shared it with me. Many R rated movies were to be had. These days we would have emptied their bank account.

I don't trust apps anymore because of all the shit they want you to buy and how aggressive they are with it. They don't even let you buy the game anymore so you can ignore it. And if you forget just that one time and let your guard down, BAM.. $1500 in charges for some shitty pixels. My kids do not have my password to the store. They have app purchases turned off. And I've completely removed them from the network. But I sure as hell still worry about it.

Yeah, didn't have that problem with my parents. I simply asked them for what I wanted to watch, R rated or not. It all comes down to teaching your kids to ask for something instead of them beleiving that they should go behind your back.

Difference is a kid can't go up to the supermarket machines and just push a button and mommy and daddy's credit card is credited, or their phone carrier accounts.
Password locks? No device tying? Not really difficult to figure out.

So does that mean they're going to remove gumball machines, and ride-type toys at supermarkets, and malls? After all those encourage children to buy, ride, or enjoy themselves too.

Brad would have not have dropped the lawsuit if he didn't have some risk of losing against her.

Not even remotely true to anyone who pays attention to the justice system these days. In most cases, it's easier to make something "go away" then it is to let it be dragged through the streets for years, even if you're in the right. Several fine examples of this are *insert various people/businesses* who pay *insert money* because the legal fees are ridiculous.

If you look at the grand scheme of things yes, but of course if you have so narrow a view that you haven't even read the thing, then yeah, LYFAO'away ;).
Really? How come it only survives with massive Feed in Tariffs(FIT programs). Nuclear is the most affordable way to go, though it's not nearly so clean. And of course, "clean energy" requires a lot of really dirty manufacturing.

Yeah I'm not surprised on GTAV, my buddy who works at a walmart part time in the electronics section said that they'd already sold out of every copy the store had. They got a shipment in of 450 units(for a city of ~40k), gone in the first 4 days inc. preorders. 250 as a second shipment, sold out 2 days after that. Next shipment is supposed to be 600 units and there's already 250 rainchecks.
