I saw a Toad hobbling along on the yard earlier today and I think I cared more about it than anything on this list.

That's sig-worthy right there.

Legislation would eliminate state laws that restrict city Internet services.

There's too much corporate money opposing this law for it to pass. Long live the oligarchy!

Who cares. Its a thing I'll log into once and then probably neverhave to log in again for like 2-4 years when I build a new rig.

I'm certainly not going to cut off my nose to spite my face and buy some underperforming AMD space heater.

Live in a warm climate, eh?

So Nvidia can mine your shit and sell it to marketers, I'd imagine?

This! What's next? Our motherboards will require a login and spy on us for marketing reasons so that advertised features will function?

This is a violation of good business practice I'm sure of that!

I used shadowplay for recording gameplay. For me also it was the reason I bought nVidia cards. Now shadowplay 2.x will not even work. nVidia retroactively disabled it (it won't re-enable now with a full driver reinstall). 3.0 requires a system audit and they will sell that information. It's very creepy and I don't want their bullshit audit. What I have on my PC is none of their fucking business.

So now I can't record any gameplay. They've resorted an audit extortion so that I can record. "We demand to audit your PC, lest you won't be able to record gameplay."


We live in an oligarchy. The function of the populace is to serve as hosts for the corporate parasites. This has been empirically shown:

"The central point that emerges from our research is that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy," they write, "while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence."

It's all about chasing away the homeless. They're the "unsavory" element using the kiosks.

There's a supermarket near my home that has a small Starbucks in it. Several of the homeless used to congregate in there daily surfing the net all day on their netbooks to get out of heat. Before this was a common occurrence, the cafe was full of people. Afterward, no one would stay. It was driving away customers.

The solution? Disable the wall sockets. Turns out, the homeless folks' netbooks had only an hour or so of battery life. Once the outlets were gone, so were the homeless.

The fact is it should be illegal for companies to charge you once you exceed your paid-for limit. They're essentially charging you for stuff you didn't agree to purchase. The FCC needs to get on that shit, stat.

They won't of course. We live in an oligarchy. The populace exists as host that corporate parasites bleed white. But hey, you still have your internet, amirite? Oh, wait...

Oddly enough, all the BF1 beta did for me was to remind myself that I own BF4. And while I won't know until release, after playing BF4 a few times over the last week, I have a feeling BF4 will probably be the better game and will satisfy my battlefield playstyle needs when in the mood.

Also shortly into the beta, I was reminded of how awesome it would be to have mod tools for the community. It seems like so much could be done with the Frostbite engine and there is so much wasted potential.

I would love to see a more PC oriented battlefield. Nothing really grabbed me with the BF1 beta, gameplay wise, it felt rather casual.

50% discount on many games including bf4 if don't have it. Code is Origin50

I just picked it up for $5 not two weeks ago on Origin. Now all the DLC is free? That's a pretty sweet deal.

EDIT: WTF? I have to add each one individually?

You must have a rowdy social circle. My iPhone 6 plus has outlasted three cases and survived many drops. Same for my wife's iPhone 6 (although I think she's on her first or second case).

The iPhone tends to source its glass from Corning who make pretty decent stuff but ultimately its still going to break when dropped at least part of the time. The iPhone is not what I would consider a durable phone but then again neither is mine. Most rugged phones have some extra shock absorption edging, a padded chassis or etc. A buddy of mine dropped his iPhone 6 and the screen was cracked. A different friend left their Nexus 6p on the roof of his truck, somehow managed to drive around and winged it off the roof during a turn. It's somehow still perfectly intact with no scratches. Does that mean Huawei makes a more durable phone? Nah, its just luck.

I ran over my Galaxy S4. The camera lens shattered, but the phone was otherwise fine. The screen wasn't even scratched.

We live in a base 10 world. That's why a scale of 1 to 10 works best. It gives a far better idea of what someone thinks about a game than a simple yes or no.

That's true for individual reviews, but a binary system aggregated to provide a percentage of reviewers that liked it can give a better sense of what people think in general. That being said, I like the way RottenTomatoes does it. They have both a binary and a base-10 system. You can see not only if something is fresh (the binary system), but also what reviewers scored it as. An 80% fresh with a 6.0 rating will be viewed differently than an 80% fresh with an 8.0 rating.

This is why we need a separate, stand-alone whistleblower department in the government not connected to any existing agency. The reason Snowden fled before releasing the docs, is due to what happened to Bill Binney, Thomas Drake, and other whistleblowers who tried to work within the system. Arrested, spied upon, harassed, fired, etc. etc. in complete violation of existing whistleblower laws.

Good god, this thing can't possibly meet my expectations...it just looks so utterly fantastic.



While I agree this looks like they're pulling out all of the stops, I think I might be a bit disappointed at the setting. The West was super popular back in the early 70s when the original debuted, but much less so these days. I wish they'd chosen a setting that is more popular. Perhaps Medieval World, given the popularity of GoT. Or some kind of Futureworld.

I suppose it could be argued "The West hasn't been done in a while!" And doing The West is probably cheaper than other options, like the Future. Still I can't help feeling like this was a missed opportunity. Roaring20s World would have been awesome.

funny, you say that. this actually happened. Some guy after Sword Coast Legends was released played the game for 86 hours. then complained about the game and wanted a refund. Needles to say, he did not get one and the joke on the forums was 86 hours. Fricking people!!!

Yeah, the game that struck me, the guy had like 497 hours or something (Fallout? Skyrim? an MMO? I forget), then gave it a thumbs down because "it got boring." Unbelievable.

This has nothing to do with monopolies and everything to do with the same thing that Amazon struggles with, fake/joke/bullshit reviews.

Yeah, Amazon started with that Verified Purchase thing a while back to combat fake/joke/spam reviews.
