Maybe one day instead of life insurance policies, Facebook will just buy out your estate and use your lifeless profile to huck Cheezits and Livenation ads to your living friends.

Well to be fair to nerd rage, you do have to use PSN to watch Netflix or Hulu off the box so when that is prevented by an unrelated service being down it's pretty annoying.

Dearest Red and Julio,

Epidemiology is such that you probably cannot avoid exposure in the manners you are suggesting. Almost every disease, up through Ebola, presents itself like a cold in the beginning. Do you go on lockdown whenever you get a cold? If not, you are definitely spreading the virus. And the idea that everyone could avoid the world when sick(work, family, especially kids) really breaks down at the lower income levels, where people can't afford to rearrange their life.

A related issue is disease reservoirs. Animals and asymptomatic humans can harbor the virus and trigger new outbreaks in unpredictable ways. This is also why we could not destroy the common cold even if everyone in the world avoided each other for two weeks. I think that trying to keep the USA unvaccinated and use only using border control would eventually trigger an epidemic.

This seems like a pretty cool idea. One way GoG can set themselves apart from the online store crowd. I never understood why these companies couldn't at least leave one server up when they decided to drop the game, but now hopefully there will be ways to play those legacy multiplayer titles.

VG Chartz has it at about 19 million PS4s to 11 million XBones, with the difference pretty much coming from Europe and Japan.

Still haven't seen a reason to pull the trigger myself but it's only been a year.

Sort of sad that contemporary bands like Grizzly Bear have to eat the Spotify sandwich after it already fell on the floor though.

I suppose they still get to just hang out all day and make music which is maybe reward enough.

re:serial TV article
Kind of interesting. Posits a backlash to all the things that the book "Everything Bad is Good For You" suggested were enriching the culture. The question is do we have anywhere to go now once TV hits film quality. As mentioned in the article, I actually think there's a lot of room for quick short serial shows that hasn't been explored. Even 23 minutes can drag quite a bit.

Treyarch is the best COD developer now. Weird to say that. These should try releasing every 9 months.

Yeah 10% that you can only use one weekend is pretty crappy, especially since they just killed their big anniversary sale. It would have been better to do nothing. Can't they just give away some avatars or something?

E-sports is rife with this garbage. It takes so much work to grind to the top of the ladder that cabal at the top cooperates to make it easier to stay there. Probably they gave the match as a boost-up that wouldn't harm their overall standing.

I've read about people intentionally throwing games in Hearthstone at the Legendary rank and even on like the Yahoo Hearts ladder.

Re: Pirated screeners

Screeners have always been a huge leak source, for practically a decade. I figured they should have figured out by now the cat isn't going back in the box. They could get ahead of it for a couple years if they went streaming probably, although most of the academy is probably too old to figure out how to install some securorom crap

Caution is warranted but most radiation we generate that can get inside a house by bending and diffraction instead of piercing (like radio waves, wifi, not like xray) has nowhere near the energy to be ionizing. Adding more wifi waves (if this even makes sense) doesn't increase the harm much because of the quantum nature of electron excitation.

A sequel to this little gem would be fine with me. It's not like it has to star the unnamed waifs from the first one, they're not exactly a huge draw. It could be their sons or literally any other pair of brothers in this world which is obviously crammed full of mythology. Maybe even deal with the consequences of the first journey.

Saw Wolf Among Us is still on sale on the Humble Store for another day at $6 and change. What does the Blues crew think, worth it at that price?

For information, I played Walking Dead S1 and thought it was okay, probably worth the $5 I paid.
