Google+ definitely annoyed me with the way it changed Google Picasa picture albums. Not cool Google.

Ack, Agent, you really dont have the story quite right but that's fine.

It is worth noting that the RI govt staffer who actually pushed the details of the deal along is also gone from govt. So there's no one to pin blame on except the current gov, who had nothing whatsoever to do with the deal.

The only "good" thing out of this is that RI'ers will never forget Carcieri for creating a mountain of debt that taxpayers have to pay.

Chafee may be a blue-blooded airhead, but Carcieri has proven repeatedly that he is bigoted and genuinely moronic.

Agree with Verno

the only thing _seriously_ not good about Skyrim was the lame melee combat. It is like you are waving a whiffle bat in front of your face.

The "magic from 2 different hands" thing was rather well done however.

With overall game revenues down yet again this year, versus years past, companies dont want to spend the $$ to appear at E3.

Cannot blame them.

I am a non-parent but....

if I had a toddler and was going on a plane I would give them a kid-version of over-the-counter antihistamine and then they sleep for 4 hours. No hissy fit and no tantrums. Problem solved for all.

I'll never forget installing the demo of Doom3 and realizing how behind the times it was in every possible way that a game can be.

Did she really think her likeness would be used solely for their bands' songs? Silly lawsuit.

It was entirely the previous RI gov who setup the crappy deal.

Chafee got stuck holding the bag with only 2 options:

cut all ties now or throw yet more tax-payer money in.

More money wouldnt save the company. He made the right decision.

"but in politics there is almost always a "bigger picture" situation..."

By "bigger picture situation" you mean money grabs, pointless power-plays and exchanges of influence.

Mr Tact you may be thinking too highly of those who govern, especially those who govern at the state and town level. For the most part these folks are either dull-headed, or mercenary, or both.

As a born and bred Rhode Islander I can say for sure that the state government was mindless in this instance. Everyone involved in the "38 studios" decision is gone from office, which is convenient and typical.

There's no "more important bigger picture" that is happening behind the scenes here Mr Tact. But if that makes you feel good thinking like that, well that's cool!

if that means flash will update 100% automatically with windows update, than that is (sort of) a good thing. Flash is still a giant security issue no matter what.

the auction house mechanism that is tied to credit cards is -- and will continue to be -- a hyper magnet to hackers.

I am kinda surprised so many long-timers here at Blues bought D3 at launch. If there was ever a game to wait on for a few months, this might have been the game?
