As crappy as this DLC might seem, just remember... It's better than multiplayer map packs! (BioShock 2)

Will it be already on the disc though?

I saw a really crappy movie in the 80s that sorta had this premise. This serial killer gets electrocuted and his ghost travels over the electrical wires to kill more victims through appliance malfunctions.

Was a bad movie, I remember that one...

If I remember correctly, things like the overclocking block preventing you from over clocking your system is just a bad side effect for what it's real idea was. To prevent shady companies from overclocking the chips to just below unstable levels and the raising the prices and selling them as faster computers. This was a bigger problem in I think the early 90s but sometimes the system was over clocked and unstable, and/or the cpus life span was shortened from the overclocking.
All in all, bad for business since it made the cpu maker look like they were selling crappy chips that were unstable and died soon.

I'd be curious to see how they stack up against other similarly priced headphones. At $300 they're in the same category as a lot of the big name audio mid-lines. If they're anything like Monster cables they're no different than products 1/10th their price

If I recall, they match up with the audio and build quality of headphones in the $150 range. At $300, you can easily buy better but like more and more people today, all the care about is the price and assume that the higher the price must equal that much more better of a device.

You do get what you pay for... to a point. But there is also the point of paying for a label and thats all.

When a us airplane crash happens, it's not a joking matter any step of the way. But when it's another country then it's fine? Even more so when it's racist jokes?

No kidding that tablets are out selling computers. The thing most companies just can't seem to understand is that a tablet beats out a laptop in almost every way... For half the price.

People want a machine that can Web surf, play movies and music and some games which both devices can do. The problems come up though that on average:

A tablet gets around eight hours of battery, a laptop maybe three or four.

A tablet has an amazing screen that has a high resolution that makes things look crisp and clear. A laptop will typically be running a tnt panel that has a limited viewing angle or has color issues and will most likely be around 1440*760, half that of a tablet.

A tablet weights a pound or less. A laptop is four pounds or more.

People like touch screens which tablets have. Laptops typically don't.

So in the end is no big surprise why tablets sell and laptops don't as well. For a typical user they both do what they need but the tablet is altogether a better buy, even before the price tag comes into play.

Tablets and smartphones will evolve to accommodate console-quality graphics, says EA's Gibeau.

Already, smartphones are powerful enough to run PS1-2 games, but we've not seen any of those ported, AFAIK.
GTA3, Vice City have already been ported over and they were PS2 games, FF4 Psp remake has also been ported which isn't the lowest power needed. The power is there, I think they are worried about sales since most games sell for $1-$2 which makes it unprofitable to make a major game.

Does this take into consideration the amounts lost from the Windows sales?

More and more people aren't buying Windows because honestly, why? They have their XBox for games and everything else can be done on their other devices. I still feel that the XBox was a poor business move on MS part

So... you don't pay for internet access?

Access and the product are 2 different things. Comcast, AT&T, Verizon, etc... the companies you pay for access don't own or control the internet.

Under this logic, Linux isn't free either since you need to have access to both the electricity and the internet to get a Linux ISO, which you've stated isn't free.

Why? Because they can. They're a monopoly in most places.

Hey, according to their highly paid lobbyists, they are in a healthy competition environment...

The world would be abetter place if they couldn't lobby. It has gotten so far out of control. I don't see how it is even legal, laws are now written by special interest groups....so sad.

The reality of it is the US isn't a democracy anymore and hasn't been for years. Its a crony capitalist nation borderlining a corporatocracy. More and more laws are made for the big business against the people, and will continue until there is a major shake up. But for that level of a shake up, it would take almost a revolution (which is what big business it trying to make sure can't happen, with more and more control over the internet and personal devices.)
