Apple Is Banning Apps That Reward Social Sharing and App Promotion

Apple should have banned IAPs instead. Those have become a cancer out of control, especially the >$3/pay-to-win ones.

The masses get bored faster, would Snowden still have been able to keep the steady flow of news going if he had stayed in the USA, if not then he would have been yesterdays news pretty fast and to be honest give it a few more months and he will be, that dude that..... He still paying the price of living in exile for the rest of his life but I guess it beats Guantanamo bay or where ever they would have whisked him off too.

Snowden and Greenwald's strategy to continuously trickle stuff out over 1.5 years has been quite genius. They've managed to keep it in the news on nearly a weekly basis since the story broke.

And despite the continuous flow of shocking news little to nothing is happening here in Europe. It almost feels like most European governments are happily in bed with the US government. Or they're too scared to act.

Look guilty? He IS guilty. He broke the law. He's not a "traitor", but he's definitely a coward. He had a great opportunity to stand for something bigger than himself and be a symbol for what the people want. Less intrusion. the vast majority of Americans were outraged by what was/is going on. He blew it for himself and for everyone else, tbh.

I don't know, if you look at how past whistleblowers have been treated by the government and the scope of what he broke info on I can totally understand fearing for your safety and fleeing. The deck is loaded against whistleblowers, the protections are inadequate and the legal reprisals can be significant, that's without getting into the grey area shit the government can get into. Maybe he wasn't thinking about his place in history and was instead worrying about the safety of his family and himself, a pretty human thing to do.

I think it's really easy to criticize his convictions and courage but putting myself on the other side of it I can easily see why. How many of us would do any different? He's not exactly living the life of luxury either. Being exiled to Russia away from friends and family potentially forever is pretty significant.

I think he should have stayed but at the same time I can't really blame him for not doing so.

nor can I, and I might have also made the same decision, except for where to run to. I mean, China AND Russia? Christ. At least try Ecuador.

Oh, don't you think China/Russia are somewhat more "resistant" to political pressure from the US than Ecuador? The whole EU crapped its pants when Snowden knocked on the door a year ago.

QFT....

"Why stop at D-Day? Let's insist on memorializing major battles of every war throughout history! /s

People really need to stop it with the putting soldiers on a pedestal nonsense. While D-day was an important event in Western history, it's not so important that it needs to be the foremost thing on people's minds 70 years later."

I'm so tired of the War Machine trying to glorify war when the end result is people dying needlessly and the taxpayers being robbed mercilessly when there are so many other important areas that money should be spent. No soldier has ever lifted a finger in defense of me in my lifetime. But they have invaded plenty of sovereign nations at the behest of big multi-national corporations, so I don't understand exactly what I'm supposed to be thanking them for, because it sure as shit isn't my freedom or the people being exploited by those multi-nationals in those countries.

"It will be a great day when our schools get all the money they need and the air force has to hold a bake sale to buy a bomber." - Robert Fulghum


[sarcasm]

Wrong forum dude. (Because it's American, Google is an American company, and Americans love everything WAR. Ever read or even listened to Mr. Key's poem?)

Just spent an hour of actual flight time doing the Vanduul Swarm. Eh, it's ok. Has potential. Maybe more than I would've expected. As I played more and got a little better, it got better. Still, it's lightyears behind Elite: Dangerous.

Stuff that sucked about Arena Commander: [...]

What's the point of your rant? It doesn't help anybody, neither the developers (do you believe they check BluesNews for comments?), nor the gamers. You're testing alpha code of a part of an unfinished game! Quoting from the SC webpage:
Remember: V0.8 is just the beginning. It’s the start of a hard push for the development team as we head towards V0.9 and finally V1.0, at which point Arena Commander will be ‘feature complete’ with the modes, maps and options promised at PAX. By the time V1.0 drops, we aim for the entire community to have access to the multiplayer game modes!

What the fuck man? He wrote a very constructive post describing his experience with the game and comparing it to another game that is still in development. It doesnt help anybody unless he is supposed to be praising the glory of the Lord Christ Roberts and his Holy Flock or his opinion doesnt matter??? Im so sick of yes men...

I didn't think it was a rant, more like an overview of what the Alpha is like.
It helped me not to worry too much about the download because other than the pretty graphics there is not much else there that I am missing out on.

So it would've been easier (and less time consuming for all of us) to just write:
"It's an alpha version, feels, looks, plays like an alpha version. End of story."

Not sure how it would run on your PC, I have a 760 GTX and it runs fluid on my machine. In comparison the SC hangar module runs like shit. I am getting like 30-40fps running around the hanger.
I haven't started up fraps to check frame rate in Elite but it is at least 60fps
Check their forum: http://forums.frontier.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=30
They have a few threads about this but I can not find them atm

Edit: found one - http://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=8231

Thanks for this info, I was going to ask about your system specs. A 760 GTX is a mid-range card and considering you're playing the alpha this is good news. Question remains, how will it perform during heavy space fights with lots of simultaneous explosions/ships/rockets/projectiles on screen.

@nin: The Elite threads tend to get taken over by SC-related posts too but yeah... lets give this one back to the SC folks.

Glad someone in this country still has the time and cojones to protest. We've become such a docile nation of sheeple.

The whole Occupy thing was just like a year ago!

Yeah, those Occupy people were pretty good. And they were apparently such a threat that they had to be infiltrated by local police, FBI, NSA, etc. etc. I really don't understand why peaceful groups get the 3rd degree, and violence-oriented groups like Cliven Bundy's gang get off without so much as a second look.

That's because those peaceful groups protest against the elitist police states we live in. They are enemies of the system (a.k.a. "terrorists"), they have the potential to incite a revolt.

“The answer is yes,” Obama replied. “I am a strong supporter of net neutrality. Unfortunately, I also lie out of my ass whenever I get the chance, and AT&T and Comcast write REALLY big checks. So, yeah. Heh," the president said while giving the "What can you do?" shrug.

We all know the politicians have a bought and sold sticker on them somewhere but letting this go through is like putting it on the forehead for all to see. We know what the correct answer is, there is only one correct answer. No left/right bullshit, no grey areas, it's just flat out wrong. How (if?) he responds to Wheeler's decision will tell you exactly what kind of person he is. I expect little.

At least we have the right to vote. Between two piles of crap we can choose the smaller one.

Yup... it's about time. But having played the most recent beta on my MacBook Pro, I have my doubts. Plenty of weird (but no serious) problems under OS X. 50+ hours to beat it sounds good though.

No, actually, please take your time and make sure it's definitely ready to be released.

Good point, as well. Getting it done for all those platforms takes (too much) time.

Thanks to AMD, Micro$oft openly admits DX 11 (as of 2014) is an outdated and inefficient API that doesn't allow modern hardware to perform at its full potential.

Without AMD's Mantle M$ couldn't have cared less. I think they even once said DX 11 would be the final version of DX. "If you wanna play games just buy our goddamn console already."

I hope by the end of 2015 there will be plenty of Mantle optimized titles out there, and since Nvidia is now feeling the pressure from AMD, they might even start coding their own NV-optimized API.

Competition. I'm loving it.

So, the best idea they can come up with to keep the NSA from spying through my webcam is to cover it up with a sticker.

Wow, not impressed.

1) Because I paid good cash to buy that webcam.
2) I actually want to use it from time to time.

Here is my suggestion on "How to Keep the NSA From Spying Through Your Webcam":

GET RID OF THE GODDAMN NSA.

First Snapchat now WhatsApp? I don't think the management at Facebook has a firm grasp on the value of money. They're like Dr. Evil trying to estimate how much is "a lot".

Lol! 16 billion for a messaging app. Wtf are they smokin' at Facebook?


Considering they just bought 450+ million phone numbers, email addresses and how they are all connected, they must be smoking some pretty good $hit. WhatsApp is data mining behemoth. Every bit of data (message, audio message, movie, picture) happily goes through their servers. Very smart move FB.

Lucky me, I have stopped using/deleted WhatsApp months ago and changed my phone number since. So, I'm not expecting a spam tsunami in the near future...
