The Fire apps I seem to use the most are Readitlater and ezPDFReader...and the google reader app (once rooted) to keep updated on all my rss feeds. For games I keep coming back to Flight control; it's just a perfect tablet game. For streaming videos from my network I use an app called emit. My amazon prime trial is over but I'll probably subscribe to that again eventually also.

I'll take an extra ship if anyone wants to get rid of one. I'm mindcrime on Steam with same logo as here --->

Easiest way is just look for me in the Steam Blue's news group.

I have way too many other games to play that don't charge a monthly fee so I'll wait for the free or level limited trial version.

This HDMI cable features a Dielectric-Bias System that reduces distortion and 100% Perfect-Surface Silver conductors for improved signal clarity.

The only thing they left out was the flux capacitor. It's sad that it's sold out though. I need to get in the marketing business and start selling some pure perfect coppertop mark AA energy holders for $200 each.

He just sounded like a typical internet punkass, nothing funny about that. I surfed away from that after about 10 seconds of watching.

The more popular Steam becomes the more morons start using it I guess. Gaming it by buying indie bundles for .01 is pretty low though. It would be awesome if Valve IP banned a bunch of accounts found doing this. That would never happen for various technical reasons but it would still be awesome.

No idea on Game of Thrones but I seem to remember some bad reviews. Amazon has the missing link DLC for DX:HR at $5 today so I may need to grab that I guess.

Yes, I do. There are games on Steam without DRM as well. AI War and expansions come to mind; you can launch it within or without Steam.

Are you implying that since I play Steam games I can't hate DRM or did you just want to make sure I knew that Steam was also a form of DRM?

As I mentioned in previous comments see this thread for cheaper (50%+) deals than Steam's 33% on Saints Row 3.

That Sonos story is a poster child for the reason DRM of all kind sucks.

Nearly jumped all over the Saints Row 3 sale today but it's still barely cheaper than I can buy it online. Doesn't seem worth it considering how long it'd be until I get around to it, especially since I'm burning out on GTA-ish games, almost done on Red Dead Redemption.

Anyone confirm that a physical disk SR3 is still Steam? Same for Skyrim, since that's nearly half-price if bought at an e-tailer.

I found this thread in the steam forums and used the GMG code at checkout (FIFTY-SAINT-XMASS) and got it for $19.99. This was about 4PM EST today so good luck!

EDIT: Forgot to mention the url in the original post on steam forums doesn't work but just clicking from the GMG front page to SR3 page worked for me.

Whoa! I just tallied up how much I spent this sale so far in Steam gifts. I could have bought myself Skyrim. Twice. Stunned

Oh well, I am pretty close to my goal of sending at least one gift to everyone on my friends list. If I haven't gotten you yet, it's because I'm eying your wishlist (checking it twice?) and waiting for the right sale day.

If I flat out forget someone, let me know - I'd hate to miss anyone.

That is really cool Prez but like I said last night when I added you I don't really need anything and my wishlist is basically there for Valve contest purposes. I'll buy those games when they are worth it to me. Until then I got more than enough to play anyway. Heck, the only game I actually finished in the last year is Portal 2.

I have 1 RealID friend from when I played WoW. Some kid named Charlie. RealID was new and he wanted me to add him as a friend. So we both enabled RealID and I have been annoyed ever since that some guy I barely know in WoW knows my full name. Luckily, he is a decent dude and we still talk when I decide to play WoW every 3-4 months or so. It's no wonder that no one uses RealID to me. Yeah there are some RL friends who may use it but other than that I prefer online anonymity over RealID.
