Thank you, Captain Obvious, for pointing this out.
It might need to be said a few more times, especially considering the amount of shady shit the TSA is involved in.

It would be better and more legal to get a warrant to snoop in the first place. Otherwise you're opening a can of worms when it comes to privacy rights and trampling on such rights.
Pretty sure I saw a story on drudge and google the other day about law enforcement at various agencies already snooping and doing this without warrants. So, it seems that down in the US they don't care anyway.

Alright just finished it, and damn it all. Sure was good, I'll spoiler nothing, but I will say fine job on the game damn fine. If you haven't bought it, it's worth the price.

I know I missed a bunch of stuff but I've got 1999 mode unlocked so in a few weeks I guess I'll give it another go. Damn yeah.

That depends was Bioshock advertised on any of their sites? Then yes they got paid for advertisements. Has it ever actually been proven that publishers pay for game reviews?
Take it or leave it as you wish.

So everyone is loving the game so far?
3.5hrs in, solid 90's game IMO, hell of a lot darker then the first one. Lack of a save feature sucks though, and the handholding does suck sometimes.

Edit: One major complaint. No save button, just "checkpoints". Really? REALLY? My F5 button is getting cold.
Yeah that's my major complaint, it's damn fun though. So far I don't have any major complaints it's a solid game so far. Hell of a lot darker than the last two, I'm almost 3hrs in now.

Yeah okay enjoying it quite a bit, damn well darker than the last two as well. Two hours in or so, but it's fun without a doubt, only complaint so far no quicksave system that I've been able to find.

Well I broke down and bought it, since my buddy is buying my xcom an bioshock keys which means the game cost me a grand total of $5(minus the gmg cashback). Guess we'll see in a few hours how it pans out.

Which is still about 100x better then ATI/AMD's driver support
Beh. Having had both cards of the previous generation? They're about equal in terms of spottiness at times with the drivers.

#1 reason to choose Nvidia is driver support
Peh. Depends on which team is doing what, considering the old 500 series driver team is doing all of the 600 driver enhancements you'll usually see impressive increases. The current support for the 500 series though can be seriously hit or miss. The recent TDR fiasco is a fine example of this, since they had to bring back the 600 team to fix whatever the other guys did.

A 95? Holy shit... I guess we know where that 200 million dollar budget went.

Dinner, dancing, and high priced escorts and blow?

I'm curious as to what the user ratings will be, but I'll be as well. But I've got enough unplayed games sitting around I can wait until this one goes on sale.

Wishing somebody would kill off Flash already,
We've got html5, and silverlight too the problem is it can suffer the same. I was on the youtube beta for html5 and about 80% of the video's simply stopped working as well.

like say, videosift pressing the middle button of a mouse to scroll completely DEADLOCKS the entire tab (but only sometimes, not always.. so maybe videosift related?). I can still scroll on the right side, but I can't click anything, and this always happens when youtube embeds are anywhere near.
...
I have the same problem in palemoon and chromium. I've had it lock badly enough to lock the entire browser before as well but yeah, YT embeds are screwed up then again in general it's fully screwed up.

Oh they are, Fusion research for example has been going on for decades. Unfortunately its woefully underfunded. Plus certain industries don't like competition to their gravy trains and politicians are easily bought.

Maybe in our lifetime. Preferably before soylent green.
Doesn't help that every time someone wants to build an experimental nuclear facility for research NIMBY's and environmentalists throw a hissy fit too. Turn over an environmentalist, find a Malthusian 90% of the time which is really a bigger problem.

Unfortunately, one of the effects of Global Warming is that temps in Europe will actually get colder. Europe is much warmer than it should be for its latitude due to warm tropical air brought by the jet stream. As the massive glacial ice pack in Greenland melts, it sends millions of tons of ice into the North Atlantic, much more than pre-global warming days. This ice actually cools the ocean so much that the jet stream is altered, and Europe freezes. Temps in Germany will become like those in Moscow.
Well it's a nice theory, doesn't reflect any of the previous melts of the ice cap in greenland though. Even right up to the point where it was 90% receded.

Yeah I trust that story from NYT's about as much as I trust their history to not have hired several people who were also serial plagiarizers.

Oh and after the most recent hike in matinee rates at the theater I figured it would be a while before I went back, but ST:ID is starting to lower my resistance...
Yeah, I haven't been to the theaters since return of the king. And before that it was when I was taking the neighbors kids to go see pokemon movies. Hah. But a buddy of mine who's an avid movie goer said that you can hardly tell the price between matinee/prime tickets now. It's somewhere around $12.50 for matinee and $13.50 for prime in my neck of the woods.

By Bethesda's standards this is a big patch but by industry standards it isn't.
Really? These days most developers simply leave their games broken and non-working after a year.
