Sounds about right. No one in the 'social media' gets upset when a lion kill 23 people or an elephant goes on a rampage in Zimbabwe, but suddenly a lion with a name is killed...and OMG...MUH FEEEELLLLLLlllsssss.

Imagine if someone hurt Maru or Grumpy Cat The (digital) (1st) (social) world would be on the brink of war!

"Zimbabweans baffled by foreign concern for killed lion."

Exactly. A whole lot of free outrage over a dead animal, not a single tear shed over the actual human suffering going on in Zimbabwe. "People without electricity or water? Meh. Lions! OMG let's start a twitter campaign!"

Good work, humanity.

Cats = popular
Zimbabwe = not popular

That google .. should i say rant.. is really REALLY.. true ,/ Who the fuck manages Android Hangout team at Google? Fire that Idiot! Then fire any manager that idiot employed and any sub-managers those managers employed. Then burn the offices, and rebuild the entire thing. Because somewhere in there must be idiocy beyond recognition.

Finished all four episodes of Life is Strange. Quite possibly one of the most powerful games I've played. That it takes place in a modern setting with amazingly well written characters isn't what sets this gem apart from others. It has consequences that can have devastating results in ways not seen in other games. Even the Witcher series doesn't have consequences quite like the ones found in this game. Life is Strange is the reason why I am a gamer.

Check out my Life is Strange fan art.

That all sounds awesome. Now gimmie that damn 5th episode so I can play it.

It can also disconnect you from the internet if you have a NAS with torrents already running... indeed, the OS where you have to disable 90% of the features to even use it, and get Enterprise edition to get the only version someone with some IT skills would ever install.. sigh

That song proved to be very ironic, considering MTV stopped having significant music video play on its main channel a long time ago, and radio is still alive and well in many forms.

The Buggles sang "Video Killed The Radio Star", then two decades later Robbie Williams sang "Reality Killed The Video Star".

And a decade later, youtube music videos kills them all. (Just look at Gangnam Style ,p)

Star Citizen reddit is full of friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly people.

Why do you care about SC cultists on reddit to begin with? They are the extended abdomen of SC forums...

Glad for you that you got that huge sum of money back though.

And imo this brings up another important issue, try finding out what the current scope of SC is. It's a pain in the ass to find all the information. It's on 60 different platforms, 12 different videos and various youtube interviews... it's a total shitfest to even find any coherent current information on the god damn game. That is never a good sign for a supposed "open development" ;/

scope of the game is getting the individual modules working before combining them all in the persistent universe early next year. arena commander will be the spaceflight part of the game; fps module will be the in person part of the game, and squadron 42 will be the SP campaign to get players started.

Ok, but for example, will I get to choose ships in SQ42? Will it have mandatory shooter elements? Will there be custom load-outs? And will it only be part 1 or will it be the whole experience?

Can't find any info on these questions ;/

Of course it's hypocrisy.. but that stream he was banned for was BY FAR the worst of the SGDQ 2015... and I mean it.. the absolute, pants down, worst.

That they banned his own twitch account is of course total bullshit nonsense But that's Twitch for ya...

Bummer. I thought it'd be here sooner. That's cutting it kind of close to Fallout's release date.

I'm not complaining really. It's a free update for me.

Between the Director's Cut of Wasteland 2 and Fallout 4, I'm much more interested in W2DC. That game was great in spite of being a buggy mess on release day, it'll be amazing(hopefully!) with the added content and other patches.

D:OS EE will be in that time frame as well.

Remains to be seen whether that really warrants a replay of D:OS though...

Really? None of your leftist nuts are gonna comment on this? Oh right, it's not America.

You should see the reactions to this in Germany....

Last time German journalists were charged with treason was in 1962 and since the highest court in Germany had repeatably judged that sources are protected and journalists do NOT violate the law when they publish secret government docs.

This investigation is against the law. And the dude that pushes for it knows it.. it's pure political bullshit with the sole goal to instill fear in potential sources and journalists.

Can be in BF4 so I would guess it is the same for Battlefront.. lets assume they too will forget Hardline ever existed

Also these pickups need to be randomized.... if they are not.. well.. think BF4 and pickups to know why that is not good

Most of the games are crappy little minimum wage job simulators too, involving some idiotic little tedium to do daily.

As it says, there isn't even really a winning, or defeating some cool system. There's just outspending or outgrinding other people.

How is this possibly fun?

Beats me... all I can think of is that suckers are somehow lured in by peer pressure (guild/clan aka pseudo friends pressuring em to join, and then they don't want to lose pseudo social status.. or some other related bullshit that never made any sense to me)

Funnily I get the addiction cycle for say, free to play games like Clickers (zero gameplay, but as progression quest showed, people like watching things progress) But a free to play title is only free as long as you don't pay money. Which is why I literally never ever spent a single cent on a micro transaction.

Maybe I am to oldschool

You know, this makes me really glad that I am apparently immune to that kind of addiction. I tested a few of these games, I uninstalled them 10 minutes later. The core gameplay hook with the timer and unlock garbage is so transparent (most of the time the games have quick beginning reward cycles that extend to minutes, hours, days, and then, months! that I felt insulted they even tried this shit on me.

These idiots are not "losing money".. they spending money by their own free will. The same free will that apparently made them buy an overpriced iPhone... hah

Story on how to disable telemetry

There...

I think the telemetry data is only for apps but who knows.

I hope you guys concerned about privacy in your OS are more concerned about what's happening on the web. It is trivial to fingerprint your browser and follow your unique ID all over the place - and that's just to start.


The difference is that my web-browser doesn't know what's on my encrypted 20tb storage... but the Explorer.exe certainly does thanks to shit ton of registry hidden history and last-access nonsense.

And equally I am pretty sure that anyone who wants privacy is well aware of this -> https://panopticlick.eff.org/

Btw:
only one in 566,112 browsers have the same fingerprint as yours... sigh stupid Firefox is still shouting plugin support even if it's "click to activate" .. a bug called out for as long as this site is up

Microsoft’s new small print – how your personal data is (ab)used

Why on Earth would anyone install an OS that so blatantly spies on it's users?

I may have gotten this link from someone here on Bluesnews yesterday.

EDIT: I stopped using Windows 10 over 6 months ago because of all the spying and MS promised that all that would be removed by release and the data was only being used to improve Windows 10. I guess that was a steaming pile of bullshit. All the shills were repeating the same PR lines. I hope that this destroys MS. F*&^ them!

yeah, you can turn all of that stuff off in the initial setup. good luck holding out though, I'm sure this whole "horseless carriage" thing is just a fad too.

This bold part is wrong.

There are telemetry / privacy settings you can NOT turn off, unless you have the Enterprise edition. These continue to transmit all installed applications, including filenames and everything else linked in any way to a MS application on your PC, to MS.

To disable what you CAN you have to spend a good few minutes scrawling through settings

https://i.imgur.com/iHge6RJ.jpg

And this still leaves you with a giant gaping security hole. Telemetry information includes IP, MAC Address, Ethernet names, Devices attached, Hardware included etc. and can be used to create a unique fingerprint of you including a complete usage statistic of everything you do on your PC.

So imo this is a huge privacy issue.
