Telecoms and cable cos basically want:
1. US government to pay them to provide internet.
2. US citizens to pay them for internet.
3. Content creators to pay them for internet.
Exactly. Their complaints against content providers amount to, "Hey! They are making more money than us! We need more!"

I had forgotten about that incident... although once I started reading the wiki article I remembered hearing about most of it. I recall the initial blaming of Hartwig, then a second investigation which seemed to clear him. I did not recall the homosexual angle. Big snafu all around. I would have been in the USAF then, so I'm sure it was "big news"...

Cool the way they load those big 16 inch guns.
They actually did a surprisingly accurate job of showing that in a Steven Seagal film, Under Siege.

John Deere's position is ludicrous and the fact they have any chance to prevail in court is proof of how out of whack our legal system is. As for why anyone continues to buy their tractors, I'm guessing this isn't a John Deere only issue...

The only way you can think that is by being totally ignorant of the facts of the case.

That's amazing. Why isn't that the top headline around the world instead of the latest Trump lunacy?
If they get to human trials and the results are positive, it will.

While I agree Microsoft buying Valve seems highly unlikely, you can never be sure when someone is flashing billions of dollars around... things happen.

Canadian here. We have what are called "block heaters" on our cars up here in the Frozen North.
Yeah, you see those in northern US states. I remember when visiting Minot AFB in North Dakota (Why not Minot? Freezin' is the reason) they had outlets in the dormitory parking lots.

News Comments > Are "Let's Play" Streams Legal?
78. Re: Jan 30, 2018, 08:58 Mr. Tact
 
Oh, and for the record -- personally I've never been planning to buy a game, then watched a Let's Play video and decided not to buy the game. I have however, either not even known about a game or had no plans to purchase it, then watched a Let's Play video and said to myself, "This game is nothing like I thought" or "Wow, this game looks awesome, I can't believe I haven't heard about it" -- and preceded to buy the game. That's happened at least half a dozen times.

Yes, I realize this is anecdotal, just relaying my experience.

But does anyone charge their spouse to watch? Many of these streamers make lots and lots of money.
Some, of these streamers make lots of money -- most make less than minimum wage based on the hours expended to play, edit, and manage their online presence.

Initially, I thought I might have missed the train on this. Shortly after the first ones showed up, I considered starting up a Minecraft Let's Play but never did. Some of those guys make good money now, but I'm pretty sure I couldn't keep it up the way they have.

Snapple being a New York thing has to be something of the long past, I've seen it in gas station convenience stores all over the country for many years.

I saw some minor indications of a failing battery in my car, I had to crank it a bit, normally it starts instantly. I often do short drives, five miles to the coffee shop, five miles back -- I'm guessing that kind of driving is tough on the battery. Looked in my records and saw the battery had recently passed its' fifth birthday. So, the next time I did a maintenance on the car I told them to put a new battery in.

Lulz, if you had asked me yesterday how recently the last D3 season had launched I probably would have guessed last month. Damn time flies by when you are old...

Keep the hate and butthurt flowing. Still funny as hell.

Still waiting for those nukes Redeye9 ;-)
I should look it up and link it but I don't feel like putting in the effort at the moment. I have to admit, I had been thinking "Trump sucks but at least the markets like him." Then I saw a graph showing changes in the S&P 500 or the Dow Jones (don't recall which) for the first year of every president since (I think it was) 1900. Trump is in the middle of the pack, below Obama.

But take all of that with a grain or two of salt. Economics is the equivalent of voodoo. Even if Presidents did things they think helped the economy no one really knows.
