German spying on the US (which I'm sure they do)

I'm sure the US never landed on the moon.
I'm sure 9/11 was an inside job.
I'm sure the sun won't rise tomorrow.
I'm sure bla bla bla bla

But I just don't have any proof. Therefore, no one gives a crap.

Great study. Completely ignores reality, but great study.

It makes sense. If your 'network' slows down or stops facebooking then you will to. Plus, the study cites data that shows a decline in FB traffic since Feb 2012.

I personally dislike FB. I only have an account to keep track of notifications from one organization that I am affiliated with - otherwise, I have no connections on the system and find it useless. In addition, the interface is pretty damn awful and the constant nagging that they do about updating your profile or 'do you know this person?' is a major turn-off.

Plenty of things "make sense" but are not true. There was no peer review, the model is based on diseases, and they are guessing based on how My Space rapidly declined. Guess what? Facebook has already outlasted My Space and as much as some people like to demonize it, social media is not a disease.

Haha so I see you read the article but not the study. Read the study, then respond or don't and remain ignorant.

HAHA, I see you can make stupid assumptions based on nothing. I read the study before I responded.

Apparently you didn't read past the introduction then, unless you completely ignore the fact that they modified the traditional SIR model based on the dynamics of OSN (see equations 3a - 3c). Taking this into account, the disease model actually is now perfectly applicable to social networks and they even explain why.

Who needs HealthCare.gov? As long as NSA's spy network is up, alive and kicking, everything is fine.

"Would NSA surveillance have stopped 9/11 plot?"

Of course not. 9/11 was an inside job that paved the way to the UPSA of today.

If you watched the live stream video of the dogfighting I could spot many a nervous face, what they are taking on to do is a GTA/ROckstar sized project of maybe bigger proportions, they are gonna need a bigger team to pull this off I think

I think they'd need at least $100 million for a GTA (V) sized project.

The Mac Pro is just a ridiculously overpriced PC. Can't imagine trying to transport something round ever, just a dumb design with zero advantage. A 12 core processor, well unless you are running apps that actually will use such and there are not many of them outside the scientific community. Again ridiculous. A friend has a system with a top end I7, 3 graphic cards, and a big solid state disc, less than 5k and it will blow the doors off the Mac Pro. Not much of an Apple fan when it comes to PC's since they are extremely overpriced and flat out badly designed.

Please don't take this personally, but your posting clearly demonstrates that you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.

Braben is definitely going all out to make this awesome.

Having played (and enjoyed) all its predecessors, I agree entirely. Braben stands for quality. They have now gathered ca. 2.3 million. I'm much much much more tempted to spend money on the new Elite than the Chris Roberts game....

"Macbook webcams can be remotely activated without any sign"

Oh, thanks for showing us this neat trick, says the NSA.

Silicon Valley doesn't give a crap about their users. The only thing they are concerned about is the NSA-caused collapse of their userbase which in turn leads to a collapse of their profits.

You're paying extra to help make sure the game is finished. It's not like the money is going into their pockets. And they don't have a big publisher to handle expensive QA testing.

If you don't want to pay extra simply wait for the final game to come out and buy it then. It's crazy how this has to be explained over and over and over again for idiots. I doubt the complainers would bother with proper testing and submitting bug reports/suggestions anyway. Hell, barely 20% of the Torment backers took the time to vote in a fucking poll about combat.

Thumbs up to that.

On a side note: The Beta is absolutely unplayable on my 2009 Dell laptop (i7 quad @ 1.6 GHz, Radeon HD5400, 4 Gb RAM), the fps is down to ~5, on lowest settings, 1680/1050. I doubt there will be a quantum leap in performance for the final version, so this game is going to need a pretty decent machine to run smoothly.

Clicked on three random links for the XBone. All promise that wonderful magic and dancing unicorns will populate your endorphin centers if you purchase this console. Needless to say, Im not impressed.

Surprise, surprise! American sites promote an American product (that MUST beat the Japanese competitor). Surprise, surprise!

I can't wait to get my hands on the W2 beta. As backers we had early access to the "enhanced" version of W1 on GOG. But as Cutter said, playing this in 2013 is really cumbersome.

My thoughts on Need for Speed Rivals.

1) Is that NFS 13 or 14? Because, somehow, the game looks familiar.

2) The level of detail as presented would be okay (on previous generation consoles).

3) The clip quality at 1080p is probably the worst I've ever seen on youtube.

4) They could reduce the level of realism further if they made the cars fly - permanently.

5) Enjoy the game, console kids...

Devilish
