Here's an interesting thing, who here has any of these Starter Edition keys and who would be interested in one? Maybe people can share this here? Like the whole Blues News family/regulars sharing with one another. Maybe not post the keys here on the forum but maybe share through email or Steam or whatnot?

So the starter edition is just the demo with a fancy name?

Personally I would never buy a plasma tv. Reason being that I had two different friends buy them (at the store without even trying you could tell which ones were LCD and Plasma, the Plasma ones were brighter and better all around looking.)

The problem? Screen burn, lot of easy to get screen burn. Play a game with a HUD for an hour? You can still see it like 2 hours later. Same with tv channels that put their logo on in the corner. They both had to put their tv on sleep mode at night before bed on burn protection mode (can't remember the name, it made the screen white with it have a fade to black bar going from right to left). If they didn't do this, screen burn all day the next day.

Both bought an LCD tv after that. Didn't matter it has the "grey haze" in the colour, it doesn't have screen burn.

As for OLED tv's, I hope not. From what I understand, OLED's can lose like half their brightness in 5 years. Due this this, OLED's are great for smartphones and tablets that have an expected lifespan of 2-4 years tops so you won't notice it, but if your going to have a device that will be around longer, like a TV, it's not as good.

(AMOLED and OLED's are mostly the same, the difference being AM-OLED means Advanced Matrix, aka, touch sensitive, with OLED not being touch sensitive).

On a different note, one of the other differences of LCD and OLED is pixel density and colour. LCD's don't have the richness of colour as an OLED, but a LCD can have much smaller pixels. The best example of this I can think of is the iPad 3 vs the Galaxy Tab. The iPad3 has a LCD screen which gives it the huge screen size that the Galaxy Tab just can't do (the Galaxy Tab uses a AMOLED screen). The catch? Pictures look brighter and better on the Galaxy Tab, but not as sharp since the screen size is smaller.
For a decent example, you can look at this YouTube video, at the times of 1:39-1:43 when he zooms in to the screens. You can see the Galaxy Tab on the right has richer yellows and blues, look at the Sun icon, the one above it, look at the yellow "Feature" icons. The color difference is something you can notice here.

Its not just CEO's of companies like HBO. Its the others like Comcast whom are trying to stifle internet innovation with low caps. Trying as hard as they can to kill of competition like Netflix and others, just to keep their cable tv connections alive against the sea of internet streaming that they can't profit from.

to be honest I still find it amazing that this is happening in the US, I have no cap here (netherlands) and I think I have to look hard to find an ISP that does. When I started with cable internet I seem to remember it was somewhere around 5mb/s for 35euro or something, over time that has changed and right now am on 30mb/s for 25euro, which is is enough for me, but if i want 100mb/s for 50euro is an option I can take.

what has changed here though is that the mobile companies have swaped from unlimited to limited internet.

I'm in Canada, not the US.

And it's worse here.

Much, much worse.

Might I show you the internet plans Rogers (one of the biggest players here in Canada) offer? http://www.rogers.com/web/link/hispeedBrowseFlowDefaultPlans

Oh, they are on my list of corporate vultures, believe me. They are at the top, actually.

Everyone has their own list. They aren't the top of mine, I have a different company that is the worst on my list

And the really sad thing is the HBO Boss could very well be right.

As more people are slowly moving to 3G/4G/LTE and the rumors that some of the ISP's are slowly moving from DSL/cable connections to said wireless tech, smaller data caps and more cloud services of various things from games to documents, ect... Video streaming could die sooner more then later.

A side effect of people wanting more and more internet everywhere, lack of competition in wireless spectrum and people not understanding the long term results of todays actions. When your cap is 30 gigs at best a month, who wants to stream hundreds of MB to a gig or two a show? Better to just use the streaming cable box that costs $40-80 a month with no limit to watch the shows, same results as cable, just called something different.

Someone convince me to get it......

Oh? I still need to finish Factions and Eye of the North myself.

What do you have left to do?

Well, I had some people run me through some areas as my guy isn't a brute...but some of the missions in Factions I can't do. And I haven't even started Eye yet...waiting for a group to do it.

I've hero'ed my way through everything, being a elementalist.

If you want to join up with me on Guild Wars though, always will to try

On the plus side, characters haven't been wiped yet either.

I'm pretty sure those characters are your account ones and won't be deleted unless you do it. I think this because of the whole free gems which can be only used on characters.

Could be wrong

I want to play this game. Slowdowns make it not fun, I would rather they fix that than add more stuff I still can't see.

Zela slowed to a walking pace, this game slows to a crawl and sometimes into the fetal position...

Ouch. Mine doesn't slow that much even on my crappy laptop....

I've had it slow pretty badly on windows, crawling into the fetal position is more when I ran it on Linux (had a 2 second delay?)

*edit* Anyone know if there will be any hope of getting this for Linux? Or more of a "when Steam is on Linux, hope it has Steam Play?"

I'm pretty sure his point wasn't if they were evil or not, but that the vast majority of game links in this section are for iOS, and not android.

Having said that, if you want to see more android links, send em in!


Well Apple is evil, but your right. I mentioned it because Android is very under reported here.
