I really wish you could only pay for the channels you want. There is so many junk channels that are either filler-reality TV or duplicate channels that finding quality TV content isn't worth the effort. For the channels you do want they spread those out in to other channel tiers to further bloat the channel count.

Yeah. They make it too complicated on purpose. All I want out of TV is sports but even the sports package doesn't have everything you want unless you get the expensive god tier package. I finally gave up and got an antenna for sports and I do some dubious streaming from some sites. I'd like to do it legitimately but they make it prohibitively expensive and annoying with stupid blackouts and other nonsense.

I'm not expecting much. Mars: War Log was mediocre at best and this doesn't really look any different. I'd love to be pleasantly surprised, though.

Agreed. Mars War Logs was pretty lame (some ok ideas but terribly executed) and this looks clunky as hell too.

still hate reddit though

You find a few subreddits you like and the site suddenly makes sense. They vary wildly in quality and content.

He's an old racist piece of shit and if he cares that he was recorded then that's up to him to deal with in civil court. The league has to deal with the fact that the information is out there regardless of how it manifested. It is totally understandable why the NBA would ban him from the sport given the context of the remarks. Put simply, it doesn't matter how it got out there, its out there and people are reacting to it.

Also before someone goes there with "freedom of speech", it has nothing to do with expressing private views or protecting job status, its about protecting citizens right to speak views free of government intervention.

I have to agree with their former community manager, though he should have known better. It's not safe to express your personal opinion with your name attached. Groupthink is required by employers and society today.

You can disagree with racism, and still be against what's happened with Sterling.

It's not about groupthink, it's that expressing your opinion has consequences and this isn't anything new, the internet just makes it more apparent. If I express bizarre political views at work, it will have consequences for me at the office. Likewise if I try to defend a bigots ability to express his opinion this might also reflect poorly on me by association. Again nothing new. This guy absolutely has a right to defend Sterling and his employer has a right to fire him for potentially damaging their brand by association with a controversial opinion.

If you are associated with a public brand then you should really be smart enough to understand that your comments might reflect on it.

Classic Theme Restorer fixed any issues I have with the new update and it feels quite a bit faster than Chrome to boot.

Well, this is the first Sledgehammer one and it had a 3 year dev cycle so it'll be interesting to see how it ends up.

How many of you email your elected reps to gripe about this stuff?

You don't email your rep if you want anything done, you go to their office and bitch in person. In this case you need an office of a senator BTW, not a congressional rep. The leadership of the commission is appointed anyway so not like complaining will likely do much but I'm sure people have.

FCC chairman is a douchebag who doesn't understand the long term ramifications of what he's doing.

So basically hes a government employee.

Oh Sony... When are you going to learn to put out an update that just WORKS?

There's always a small percentage of users who have issues with these things, it's just the nature of the beast.

The parent company (Sony) really flubbed physical media vs streaming despite several opportunities to shore up that side of the business. Outside of the videogames division Sony reacts to market changes like they're mired in quicksand, it really shows the need for having a leader with some vision.

Excitingly, the voice commands you can use with the system will be updated. Unlike Xbox One, you don't need the PlayStation Camera to use voice commands, but we found the options to be quite lacking at launch.

Wtf? The PS4 is a Spybox as well?

No, you have to hook up a mic and turn on the voice commands to use them.

Echoing the fail sentiment. Dark Souls is one game that demands that you learn to play, the game does not fuck around and pat you on the ass with forced exposition and a massive tutorial.

Evolve or GTFO, the game gives no shits Devilish
