People who cry free speech need to read the First Amendment.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Unless the moderator, company, or host is a member of Congress, there is no violation of the First Amendment.

Sexual harassment is still sexual harassment and it is up to the individual to determine whether they consider it acceptable. Brad's behaviour was absolutely disgusting and I think she was completely justified in what she did.

Agreed. He's lucky her bf or husband didn't attempt his own form of justice.

You know there is no way you can bring a class-action suit anymore to ANY company right? You agreed to that when you agreed to the ToS or EULA. Every single one of them has that anti-class-action suit clause in it now. So they can go ban happy and each person has to represent themselves to an arbiter who Sony pays for FYI. So justice ha, good luck with that. Everyone thank the judges who said it's OK to click away certain rights in ToS and EULAs that 95% of people don't read and majority of probably wouldn't understand even if they did.

I wonder if this has ever been tested. Has someone tried and failed due to the TOS or EULA?

The simple answer to Twitter abuse is displayable and authenticated home address information; possibly limited to designated moderators. Most online bullies hide behind anonymity. If you take that away, they will think twice before posting. Virtual communication needs to be merged with the harsh consequences of real life interaction.

The Intel + Nvidia combination are still the best for PC gaming. Better drivers and performance. I have yet to see this proven wrong.

Once Twitter goes IPO, suddenly the morality and ethics of the more powerful investors will take hold. Expect a lot of pressure on Twitter to be controlled by commercial and profit interests. They will have no choice in the end.

My wife lost her mom years ago and it still hurts her to this day. I make an effort to visit my mom whenever we can. You just never know when that moment will happen. Cheer up Blue. Focus on your wife and living loved ones. Give them all big hugs and lots of love. Cherish the people you have around today. Tomorrow is unpredictable.

From the article: Romero said. "In working with UCSC, my goal is to push students toward innovation while working on my own new indie projects alongside them."

Let's see if the student or teacher can get to the patent office first.

News Comments > New EA CEO
9. Re: New EA CEO Sep 17, 2013, 22:54 BobBob
 
A fellow had just been hired as the new CEO of a large high tech corporation. The CEO who was stepping down met with him privately and presented him with three numbered envelopes. "Open these if you run up against a problem you don't think you can solve," he said.

Well, things went along pretty smoothly, but six months later, sales took a downturn and he was really catching a lot of heat. About at his wit's end, he remembered the envelopes. He went to his drawer and took out the first envelope. The message read, "Blame your predecessor."

The new CEO called a press conference and tactfully laid the blame at the feet of the previous CEO. Satisfied with his comments, the press -- and Wall Street - responded positively, sales began to pick up and the problem was soon behind him.

About a year later, the company was again experiencing a slight dip in sales, combined with serious product problems. Having learned from his previous experience, the CEO quickly opened the second envelope. The message read, "Reorganize." This he did, and the company quickly rebounded.

After several consecutive profitable quarters, the company once again fell on difficult times. The CEO went to his office, closed the door and opened the third envelope.

The message said, "Prepare three envelopes."

I see enough crime on the 10 pm news. I see how much it hurts people. I don't need to experience it first hand as a virtual perpetrator.

Actually it was Roddenberry's idea that V'Ger is borg.

It makes perfect sense and has a nice circular history to it. Proof please.

He's not the only one. When NASA launched Voyager, the question was posed within the DoD of "What would we do if an unmanned probe showed up on our doorstep and basically asked 'is anyone there?'"

To get an equivalent experience he would need to plug it into a monitor, actual KB/M and etc, by the time he's done he would have most of a desktop anyway. Laptops are for more portable gaming IMO and so far haven't replaced traditional desktops for gaming usage. With the newer consoles likely to drive up system specs and demand I think a desktop is probably the safer bet. I would rather have a laptop or tablet for travel usage and a desktop at home.

I think it depends on what specs the game is made for. Often a game is console spec'ed to the point where even a mediocre laptop can run it at full settings -- as long as its processing power is a step above the next gen console.

Of course, if you absolutely must have the maximized resolution and settings, that can be a problem. I've never played a game where I need everything to glow and the particles to swirl in order to enjoy it. I usually drop the settings a lot for greater frames.
