Or a GPS transmitter in every car so the driver can get his ass sued for speeding. Who would really want that no matter how many lifes would be saved?

Well tough shit because that's going to happen in the coming decades, if not within the next decade. You don't honestly think the ongoing push to network virtually everything to everything else is somehow going to bypass automobiles? When Toyota is constantly advertising their vehicles as WIFI hotspots and companies like Google and a bunch of major manufacturers are R&Ding self-driving vehicles?

Driving is absolutely unequivocally *not* a constitutionally protected freedom, so don't bother trying to play it off as such.

Season Six Of Game Of Thrones Will Air Before Sixth Book Is Finished

I wasn't aware there was ever any indication it would be otherwise?

The rise in prosecution of drunk drivers is a direct response to community outcry. MADD formed in 1980. Before then, it wasn't uncommon for officers to just plop drunks into the drunk tank and let them detox overnight, then send them on their way.

Technically it's illegal for bartenders to serve booze to persons already intoxicated, in Ohio at any rate. Drinking to get wasted is pretty much universally accepted and seldom discouraged.

I just looked through their Wiki list and I don't really see anything that would make me buy one just yet. Half-Life 2 is supported. Great. Did you re-do it with hi-rez textures and improved poly-counts? No? Why the hell would I pay $500 to see graphics from over a decade ago?

Why would you think they would be in charge of adding support for their product to other peoples' games? UE4 has built-in VR support, as does Unity.

I've been on cable for about 15-18 years in Ohio, in and near metro areas, and haven't seen my speed improve. It was AWESOME downloading at 2MB/s... in 2000... and now I have playback issues on youtube 90% of the time. Here's to progress.

I asked somebody I'd seen it with last week to give me a quote from the movie... and he drew a complete blank. That coupled with the inability to hum literally any piece of music from the movie = not good. It was an "OK" movie, just like everything else JJ has done. If anyone at Disney or wherever has any love whatsoever for the IP they'll drop the fan service to zero next time and put out an honest-to-god original story.

So you're saying a show about living in a zombie and cannibal bandit-laden post apocalypse shouldn't have character deaths? Because you "invested energy" into the characters?

This is why most TV is unwatchable.

Due to popular complete and total lack of demand, Xsyon has switched to a one time buy-to-play price allowing for unlimited and unrestricted game play.

No, the open world isn't really that large or dense and there aren't any of the pointless distractions modern games like to hurl at the player to inflate their duration. Prior to Dark Arisen fast traveling used rare and very expensive items, so much of the game was trekking from place to place and/or backtracking... but Dark Arisen nixed that.

That makes sense in regards to the Oscars but even if they released it last week, it would have been contending with In the Heart of the Sea and could have soaked in six days of nearly zero competition which is where a large portion of money is earned.

I'm sure they've done everything they could to get it released AT ALL in 2015. And it isn't like this is isolated to Hateful, let's not forget Revenant is also releasing (limited) Dec 25.

And I'm sure the only reason that pharma guy was investigated/arrested is because of the enormous public outcry. He's a fall guy. Wall Street won't notice his absence.

He has to release it by the end of the year for Oscar consideration. Contenders don't want to release their movies early in the calendar year because they'll lose steam by the time the next awards season rolls around.

And QT has made a very big deal about having shot his latest movie in 70mm (Force Awakens is 35mm), and they had to acquire a bunch of 70mm projectors to get a nationwide screening for its proper format. Long story short, they put a lot of logistical effort into Hateful Eight. For interested parties, here's where it's scheduled to open Dec 25 in 70mm.


And not to rag on Star Wars, but I'm more keenly interested in a film developed by a man wholly dedicated to his medium than in whatever glossy product JJ and his army of CGI wizards could have possibly come up with.

The only advance screening I ever attended was for Blood Diamond. I arrived at the cinema intent on catching Stranger than Fiction and was told Blood Diamond was showing instead. I think it was free, so I couldn't really complain. Not really sure why this random Regal theater on the west side of Akron was screening a movie; figured that was a practice for fancy-pants theaters around NYC or LA.

We receive some donations from our users, but our main source of revenue comes as part of the Acceptable Ads initiative. Larger entities pay a licensing fee for the whitelisting services requested and provided to them (90% of the licences are granted for free, to smaller entities)

This is the definition of extortion.

Whatever, regardless of the outcome, I and I'm sure plenty of others will never be returning to ads-infected internet.
