These naturally come with a new motherboard chipset

Of course they do. Sigh

I wonder if the court offered to hypnotize you in order to aid recollection and you refused if that would be considered contempt?

I'm sure some shitwick judge would rule that.

All of this could of course easily be settled by SCOTUS making a determination once and for all if being forced to produce a password to an encrypted device is a violation of your Fifth Amendment right. (it is.)

But apparently SCOTUS is too busy with... whatever, to make a ruling on what's likely to be one of the most important decisions of the digital age. Or, the government knows which way SCOTUS would vote, since there's only one way to vote that doesn't flagrantly shit all over the Constitution, and they are urging SCOTUS to not hear the case, so they can keep their bullshit little procurement party alive.

Why is cost saving a bad thing

I'm not saying it's a bad thing—their engineer is pretending that cost was never the issue, then contradicts himself literally in the very same paragraph.

To be fair, these days there are a lot more people with solid broadband connections than there were even ten years ago. When you have cable or fiber with 10 Mbps upstream, it makes for a more responsive game if you're connecting directly to other players. As we all know, even a tiny bit of added responsiveness makes a big difference in an online twitch shooter, so I assume that's what they're going for. Ultimately, I'd rather wait and see how well it actually works in the game before I start bitching.

That's fair enough, but the downside is that if you get one player who thinks he can play on his fucking potato, everyone in that instance has a shit connection because of that one guy.

Most Mass Effect MP games I play are fine, but every now and then there's another one of those who play on a 26K baud modem, and bam, have fun glitching all over the place.

Why peer-to-peer? Are we trying to save money?
Matt: Nope! We've invested heavily in new server infrastructure for Destiny 2, including using cloud servers for gameplay for the first time. We really believe this is the best model for all of Destiny 2's varied cooperative and competitive experiences. Engineering will always involve tradeoffs and cost-benefit analysis

What's the tradeoff for client-server, exactly? That it works great and everyone has a smooth match?

Oh wait, cost-benefit analysis. So you ARE trying to save money.

Nice trailer, looks interesting. Dude over at Ars was basically orgasming all over it, though. "OMG IT LOOKS LIKE AN ACTUAL MOVIE IT IS TEH MOST GORGEOUSEST!".

Yeah, because we've never seen absurdly beautiful trailers from Ubisoft before that later turn into "eh" graphics when the game gets released. Rolleyes

I thought about using the Iris scanner function on my S8, but before you register, it puts up like four warning messages about potential eye damage and yadda yadda yadda. The screeching record sound hit, and I thought better of the whole situation.

Sweeeet. Now if I could just convince the wife to let me get one.

It's only $1100, which is like $900 cheaper than is it were $2000; what a steal! Also you'll need to get dual 1080ti's so as not to waste that monitor's potential. It'll only making your gaming more efficient, which means you'll have more time to spend with her! See how could she not let you buy it?

I... just... I mean... bravo!

I would like to put this theory to bed by telling you our servers run on the highest possible spec machines that AWS offer. (*)

People aren't going to tolerate this much longer I suspect, not when their children are the targets.

I'm pretty sure nobody still tolerates it, but what else are we going to do? Drop MORE bombs on Syria?

You can't eradicate an ideology... :\

Expect Theresa May to go full hog on her "The government must see, know and approve every single thing you post on the Internet!" crusade now, inasmuch as she wasn't already.

There are companies that spend 10's of millions and still had this happen to some degree. This I know as fact. You needed the March update to be protected if this fired off on your pc. Not 10 years worth of protection, not Aprils, March's. If one system didn't take the upgrade and that user clicked the email, gotcha. You can spend a lot of money and still have that scenario happen because PC's just don't always take. Looking at my biz PC it failed once and then 4 days later took the patch, this was still a few good weeks ahead of when it hit.

This happens to a few systems in a corporation that for some reason didn't upgrade, no big deal. Tech support reimages those machines, and a few hours later the users are back up and running.

I'm talking about corporations that got thousands of PCs hit by this. That's just pure stupidity or laziness or both. And typically in an IT department, that's caused because there's a bunch of useless shitheels in charge, or because there's no money.
