Fry’s didn’t “suddenly” go out of business. They’ve been a ghost town for years, half the store was empty shelving.

It’s not a surprise, but it is disappointing.

Yeah. They've been out of business for nearly three years -- but kept renewing their property leases to buy time to find bigger fish to move into the properties. The day they switched to a consignment model and the shelves went empty because nobody reputable appreciated the change in terms was the day they died. And that was years ago.

I'm sure the three remaining players will be crushed.

WD marketing SMR drives specifically for NAS RAID usage without disclosing they were SMR drives was really ethical. I guess they won again because they pinky swore that they would stop doing it after they got caught and sued?

This is why you only ever buy the game when the discount is deep and it comes bundled with all the add-ons.

Not surprised to see them get gobbled up, but I am surprised they kept Pitchford. Did they structure the purchase agreement in such a way that they don't have to give him a golden parachute if he publicly screws up again, and now they are just waiting for him to do it?

I can't wait for them to get something to market, release one product which uses it, and then drop support four years later.

They did good work. Shame to see them get absorbed before they could complete any more high quality reissues. Nothing the new parent company has to offer really interests me in any way, but I hope they don't squander the talent. (Who am I kidding, of course they'll squander the talent by forcing them to work on Diablo for mobile or some similar microtransaction laden garbage).

When a buggy, janky, broken game with potential is released as a single player product -- people inevitably find ways to get it working and mod in their own *fun*. When one is released as an online multiplayer product -- that course of action only serves to get you banned. So why bother?

The moment of realization when they figure out just what exactly was repurposed in order to create this junk is just wonderful.

Also when did toms guide go to shit? I could not leave a comment because there was a constantly streaming video ad you couldn't close on the mobile version.

Around 14 years ago. It is kind of a wonder that it still exists in any form.

Even Tom doesn't think much of the current state of the site.

It likes to preload all the video files for the in-store ads -- whether you want it to or not. Enjoy!

Nobody even needs to mock or parody his company or his products anymore. They already do a good enough job of it by themselves.

Speech without liability is chaos, and that is exactly what unfettered by law (230) social media is inflicting on civilization now. It will continue to devolve society until it destroys us or adults step in and kill 230 and make social media just as liable as any other publishing medium.

That is the dumbest thing I have ever read. Liability already exists. The party responsible for that liability online is the person who said it, not the website where they posted it, the app they used to share it. The primary beneficiaries of 230 are not big companies. They aren't the ones who wind up having to shut down, because as you already note, they have moderation and the ability to scale. This doesn't punish them in any way shape or form, or fix the problem. It just makes sure that they will continue to never have any competition.

I think I know the answer to the Quibi question. It is a two part answer. The first part is Jeffrey Katzenberg, and the second part is Meg Whitman.

That's the eBay business model in a nutshell. "We'll address the obvious scam listing just as soon as we finish collecting our listing fees from the user in question. And by address, we mean we will let them repeat the exercise 50 or 60 more times rather than ban them or block the activity in any way. To combat this deficiency, we will issue a press release about the problem -- and will emphasis that we already have a rule against this, even though we only enforce it when subjected to media attention."

Never use eBay.
