"Report: Jared Fogle's Charity Didn't Pay Out Any Grants."

What a mess this guy has turned out to be. If you can't trust a sandwich advocate who can you trust!?

I'm always surprised by the lack of critical thought at Blue's in response to these Derek Smart articles. Sure the guy sounds semi-crazy sometimes and he's clearly an attention whore but does anyone here honestly believe Star Citizen isn't a looming disaster?

The majority of the SC threads here have been negative towards the games lack of progress and management (myself included). But bad management of a small private company is not a suable offense by a non-related party with no damages. If that lacks critical thought please explain his legal case.

I also support the legal action. Not sure what the retarded comments about Derek's own failures are about. If your bank screws you out of money then you have to be a banker yourself to be allowed to sue? Hardly...

As shown above they gave him his money back. He has no financial stake in the project and therefore no cause for legal action. Regardless of how much CIG's feathers need ruffling threatening legal action when you can't demonstrate any personal harm is so frivolous that it's unethical.

With this latest move I almost feel sad he's fallen this far. I don't know if it's narcissism or some obsessive compulsive thing but it's out of control.

That's all I see.. reminds me of the fucking Mako planet stuff on Mass Effect 1... The worst part about Mass Effect 1.

That fits my problem with the current ED to a T and also my suspicion of what No Man's Sky will turn out to be. Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. On a tech level it might be damned impressive (ED's spacemap is jaw dropping for example), but that sense of awe gets wiped out by the repetition quickly.

I'll miss Stewart but he has enough successors that it shouldn't be too big a loss. I consider John Oliver required watching now.

Carriers urge FCC to give them some more fat subsidies and govt sponsored monopolies so they'll lay fiber. To 3 or 4 communities. Eventually. No guarantees.

The difference being the former is a real thing that happens and the latter is not.

I much prefer ED flight model to SC.
SC just makes me frustrated and it feels like I am controlling a freecam not a space ship.

Ditto. ED feels like flying a ship, SC feels like a space turret blackout simulator. To each their own.

I think a Bluesnews MMO is in order. The fights that pop up in certain threads can be transferred into real fights. Winner gets the last word and the right to close the thread. Trolls could be literally kicked back under the bridge. Should only take a weekend to code. Two tops. We could do a kickstarter.

When a game launches in a worse state than usual, like say Arkham Knight, would that then be a Public Pre-Beta Alpha?

Valves customer service sucks and that extends to making sure the stuff they sell actually works on modern systems. They leave it to customers to figure it out and post fixes in the forums. I don't think they even have compatibility warnings on the product page, do they?

If it's old buy it on GOG. Valve is too busy moving desks around and watching the currency come in for little to no work.

I've seen similar success stories from others installing 10. Anything with Microsoft involved needs a grain of salt but the upgrade seems to be smooth and unlike with 8 the UI is getting widespread approval. We might have a true successor to 7 here. Tentatively look forward to trying it out later this month.

I don't know if I can defend anyone on this. On the one hand you have cabbies and all the standard complaints that apply. With Uber you have a disruptive new type of service which by itself is a good thing for markets but the company itself is just so damn scummy. Bleh. I don't think there's any winners here.

Every one of those items are tracking you. Granted... most of this appears to be coming through quantserve and switchadhub, but that's 20-ish trackers just on this site.

... and this one is mild compared to most.

Oh absolutely, I was referring to some of the sites I've seen that have 60+ running (according to ghostery).

Are ad blockers legal? Is that a serious question? Might as well wonder if sun guards in vehicles are legal since they can prevent you from seeing billboards.

Sites that don't use a million privacy violating trackers and respect your time I'll leave the blocker off (like Blues). Sites that don't respect you get blocked. Sites that break when I block them don't get visited. That simple.

That's got to be a new record for time between patches, or at least close to it. Good on them. Never did get around to trying it with the content patch, might be time.

It was most definitely registering a 9.5 on the sarcastometer. For reference I am currently using a provincial crown company as my cell provider and a co-op ISP for internet. Both offer superior service, coverage and pricing compared to the private competition. This is a province which historically has had very low population densities so public sector utilities have a long history.

No idea who those guys are but kudos for standing up for their principles.

It was a lack of basic human moral principles that made them publish that hit piece in the first place. Not owning up to an obvious and tasteless mistake doesn't make it principled. I didn't think the gawker network could sink lower but they dug a hole to china this time.
