Read the article, people.

The claim:
"Apple said that as of 2014 all of its U.S. data centers, corporate offices and more than 450 Apple Retail Stores around the world are running on renewables."

Later in the same article:
"Apple's corporate offices, data centers and retail stores represent only 1 percent of the company's carbon footprint, while manufacturing in the U.S. and abroad makes up the lion's share."

So, there are lies, damn lies, and statistics.

Then add this:
"Over the past three years, Apple has reduced its facility emissions and those created by purchased electricity by 48 percent, 'even while our overall energy consumption greatly increased.'"

So Apple is buying power from other sources, and in the U.S. you don't get to "choose" what power sources you get to buy from. It all goes down the same lines. Buying from SoCalEd, CPL, or anyone else means you are buying the majority from coal power (even were you to stipulate that your power should be wind or solar, the energy companies can't do that... you get the same power down the line as anyone else).

So, yep, total PR BS...

SOURCE PLEASE

All it was was 'What's inside the fucking box!' Can you imagine how that felt? For me, that's what this industry is. We've spent 20 years creating something that Sir Clive Sinclair said would become the dominant entertainment medium. We're almost there. Now is the time we have to show the world that they don't need to be anaesthetised by the deluge of rubbish from TV and film, because they can be involved. They can solve puzzles, create things, they can feel good about themselves. That's why I love what I do."

I wish some of the folks here knew what happened, and would understand what law enforcement officers have to deal with. The job and potential danger does NOT end at the end of their shifts. It doesn't end when they take off the badge and uniform, and it doesn't end when they go home at the end of their day. It doesn't end when they go to the grocery store, it doesn't end when they go and pick up their kids from day care/school. It doesn't end if you're alone, it doesn't end in a group of 100 friends, it doesn't end if you have your wife and child by your side.

tired of this shit, for real

its a choice - we all make them - we all live with the consequences..

plenty of people have tough lives with lots of challenges, and they dont get medals for them, and they dont get a cheering crowd either

fucking man up, or go home - thats the end of it

In a real space sim they should actually just disable mouse and keyboard as soon as you leave the main menu and the game engine starts loading. Fuck the casual n00bs who can't fly for shit!


^ zero sarcasm included by the way. Seriously. Fuck casual n00blets who want a Space Invaders action clickfest or Call of Duty in space instead of a sim.

HOTAS FTW! It's the only way. The only pure way for the enlightened ones. The way of the pros. My way...

I suddenly desire to play with a mouse/keyboard.

darwin would be proud

They called back and got one representative to admit customer service reps have been instructed to hang up after registering a ticket and giving that message.

Don't worry, I'm sure our local Rockstar fanboys will just say this was a miscommunication with the outsourced customer service and not in any way the fault of glorious leader Rockstar.

because we all know the rockstar devs actually take the customer service calls themselves

2. Why the fuck is it my job to make a cop comfortable in giving me a ticket? Most of them are just overpaid ticket dispensers for the state generating revenue with bullshit laws that solely exist for that purpose and are completely arbitrary. Cops now make 100k a year plus massive benefits of which 99% of their job could be done meter maids or cameras for a vastly cheaper amount. You just sound like a well trained dog. Yeah, I know your type, natural born traitor and collaborator. One of those weak willed people who needs the protection and approval of authority figures to validate his miserable existence

You calling anyone else a traitor is rich. You are here every day, whining about one social issue or another. You can't even keep your own opinions straight and end up contradicting yourself constantly, you're just noise. You want all of the benefits of society without having to pay for any. You are the traitor, you who would skip out on his taxes and don't care about his neighbors. No modern society can function without some form of police force. Traffic is a very small portion of that job. I don't hold police in any high esteem as I think they get a lot of slack that they don't realize but you go too far in the other direction with your bizarre paranoia and frankly extremist bullshit. If you think society without police is so grand feel free to move to the middle east, then you can lecture the rest of us about how wonderful life is without the 'ticket dispensers'.

You don't get to lecture people about how necessary police are until you've lived in a place where the crime rate consists of more than fucking traffic violations. Overpaid or not, cops deal with a lot of bullshit that you obviously don't want to.

as long as you have all the idiots fetishizing and worshipping these "heroes", you are gonna get an equal and opposite reaction from the idiots on the other side of the equation

in other words: you're all idiots.. none of you know whats best for anyone else

patch seems to have improved overall performance for me, even tho it was already silky smooth.. not too bad, id say

i dont have any mouse lag, but i do understand the person simulator comments.. it makes sense because you can also look down and see your body.. so you have to consider animations playing out in this 3d form that also has physics reactions, and so its not always instantaneous

also its weird playing 3rd person with a mouse, because moving and looking in different directions is not the same because you arent strafing from side to side like in 1st person mode... so thats funky too

Wish someone would do some benchmarks with cpu's other than the newest and most expensive. We know games will run great on the newest cpu's. How about showing some benchmarks with i5's, ya know the cpu's that the majority have right now?

ive got an i5 @ 4.2 and GTA5 is running like silk.... also 970

have to admit, id say the graphics are a bit of hit and miss, it certainly looks awesome a lot of the time, sometimes fucking spectacular - other times its not very impressive, like some shitty textures with ugly shaders.. but that seems rare - its just odd how its all mixed in there together, im assuming its legacy stuff from other versions, older engines, etc... sometimes this stuff is right next to some very detailed stuff, and it really looks odd

Man, what on earth did you do? I'm almost at Twin Elms and I just made level 9...

I haven't completed the endless paths yet, so maybe that has something to do with it.

apparently you are supposed to do endless paths as a side quest during the game, but not all at once

because the first 5 floors are pretty easy, even at level 4-6ish.. it gets a little more tough below that, but not too bad until after 10th floor

yeh and im 11th level and getting close to maxed out, and Im also doing all the twin elms area shit.. havent finished the game yet and im probably 40% thru act 3, or maybe halfway..

got all the bounties except the ogre chief, that shit is fucking hard yo
