I can give you my reasoning... I'm a developer that has work in a *NIX env my whole career. To use Windows 10 for what I do would just kill me, it's a horrid environment for work. I have nothing but issues on my gaming PC, and it all comes down to Windows being shitty and hardware vendors providing shitty drivers and software.

My MacBook pro can go months without a single restart, where it goes to sleep around a dozen times a day- the only restarts I do initiate are for security updates. I have trouble getting my windows machines to wake from sleep/hibernation. When it does work, my wifi usually has to be killed and restarted or else I'll get a "limited" connection. Oh, and getting a wifi adapter 6 months ago on windows 10 was a disaster, NOTHING supported 5Ghz reliably.

What is always interesting is how we all have different experiences. My Win10 is acting like your Mac. Win7 was solid like that Mac as well and I assume Win8 would have been if I'd had used it. I do agree though, mac made a comeback on users that couldn't have any luck with their PC's. That's how it happened for most. Xp as much as we liked it, was really in a time when browsing the internet and getting hijacked, was way too easy for many to get and blow out their PC. I'd have to always service family and friends, those that didn't mind forking out the dough moved to macs. Since Win7 that has dropped dramatically and Win10 is just more of the same for me.

Update: Still have the two services off on my PC's. No forced updates since. Going on 3 months.

Right on Tom! That's awesome. And of course the 2 GOP commissioners came down on the side of big biz and against the people as usual. Jesus, it'd be sad if it wasn't so funny; There was also an article on WaPo about how Trump's luxury hotels are struggling. Well why don't his supporters stay in them? Oh right, because they can't afford to. Once again going back to the ancient adage about conservatives are either rich or stupid, and most of them aren't rich.

Isn't much a reinvent, just another take on a pc hw setup. A Surface Pro PC. Yeah ok, whatever, perhaps some have a need for the setup.

Sounds like the devs need to grow a pair and get in a union and fight for their bigger share of the pie. It's all up to each and every one of us to obtain leverage and use it if we like and then see where it leads. No guarantees.

Drones, when used properly for fun or as a tool, are not the issue.

It's the idiots the go beyond common sense that ruin it for everyone else.

So blanket ban them all, poor answer Sweden, very poor.

But that is how it works. I don't want the TSA, but someone went and fucked it all up. Drones for many are just a wow cool thing... but they do come with privacy issues and a few others. Go wow and cool something else.

I'm all for people fighting for what they believe in peacefully. That is how this all is supposed to work. If you feel exploited to a point you have to take action and do... good for you. Doesn't mean you will win or not, if it is just enough you will win. Otherwise we'd all be beaten down to slaves in enough time, no voice, no actions available. So go for it... the market will speak.

Was talking to son recently, imo there aren't a lot of real re-make/next in series IP's that haven't been done now. This deserves a follow up. I don't ever recall it really ever being bad mouthed. Sort of like Vampire. Not sure why the industry misses on these.

If that is the main reason, there are mods that you can become god-like with Oblivion and Skyrim as well. Yes mods.

I think super intelligent AI would quickly become incomprehensible to humans. Their goals and ways of thinking would be beyond us. Even the fundamental goals we take for granted, like self-preservation, or procreation, may be completely irrelevant to an AI.

The sci-fi idea of a race of AI deciding we're a threat and killing us is based on huuuge amounts of projecting human thinking onto a potential super AI. A super AI might not even have the concept of something being a threat to it. It may not value its own existence in that way or see any value in ending something elses existence.

These machines are not likely to think like humans at all for very long. Sure, the first few generations will be very human like and retain a lot of our influence. But as our ability to influence them grows smaller, each generation will be less human than the last. Though they will be our own creation, they may quickly become more alien to us than any organic species that may exist in the universe.

Interesting, perhaps AI ends up being similar to cancer cells we all have that some never activate in people, while others do. The AI as you say doesn't comprehend things like we do, it destroys not only us, but the universe with how fast it can think and spread. The universe is just another living thing on a scale we can't comprehend. In it's reality it just succumbed to cancer and died.

AI really is something that is totally wide open for good or worst possible scenario you can ever dream up. Without a doubt mankind is out of its league and I don't care who promises "it's safe!". Man could very well be working on its extinction.

I'm not as gloom or doom though in general day to day as some have painted here. Some want a reboot... until playing computer games is interrupted for the reboot.

Stephen is a pretty smart guy, but I think he kind of misses the point here while being right at the same time. If we ever create a pure AI it is likely that eventually it's acomplishments will surpass human ones, making humankind kind of irrelevant and superfluous. There is no reason to believe that it will somehow turn on us, destroying us in the process. I think it's far more likely that it will simply leave us behind while it advances scientifically and technologicaly to a level that we cannot even imagine considering our own limited biological "hardware" and "programming".

Semi-interesting thought, religious types always assume a superior being created us and is all powerful. In this case you suggest an inferior but intelligent being created a better being, for it to run with the ball and see how far it can go. That inferior being not being a god in any way we really measure it, jut intelligent to a point, no real power or eternal promise.

Your only possible hope for obscurity is disconnecting the rj45 from your machine.

Since I have a smart phone, been mined for years, this news like win10, don't rile me up so much. Game was over in terms of anonymous a long time ago.

This doesn't mean I like it, but that I've accepted reality. Hopefully there are benefits for the user and society when others have information like this.

Legacy Server is nothing more than throwing a bone to loud-mouths that continually live in the world "It was better when...". Some actually would prefer it and many will realize "oh I guess I look back at it better than it actually is". There isn't Blizzard type monetary returns doing it.

I have no pity for most people who pre-ordered or bought this game.

It was crystal-clear from its inception that it's going to be another Spore. There was no "what if". It was just going to be crappy procedural models inside a bland gameplay loop. The more time passed, the clearer that became, to the point where even a dog should've gotten it already. The vague pie-in-the-sky promises, the fuzzy-wuzzy videos with no real gameplay shown...

But I guess there's a sucker born every minute. I feel no pity for any seasoned gamer who bought it, period. The only people I pity, are the clueless teenagers or their moms ordering this game for them. Those are the innocent casualties of Sean Murray's scumbaggery.

Site needs a like system.
