"Microsoft will end Windows 10 support in October 2025."

- Federal here, no they won't, at least, not for the entirety of Windows (Enterprise). We have so many systems barely getting switched from W7 to W10 Enterprise now, that in 4 years for us at the top level of IA to then say "hey, ahh, everything you finally upgraded and brought into compliance is now going to be out of compliance and unable to be secured, needs to be upgraded again" just won't fly. We have stovepipe systems, and few of a kind systems that still run on unsupported XP, and as such as easy targets for exploitation. You think we'll not throw buckets of money at MS to keep w10 afloat as long as possible whichever version lasts the longest? We will, we did it with XP and old Server releases.
Correct, that date is just for home/pro versions.

Pretty egregious on Valve's part. It must sting to owe four million to a company for patent infringement on a discontinued product.
Actually makes me wonder if that's why they discontinued, to try and reduce that.

This is the kind of BS that gets put out by some hapless PR droid after a purely insincere for show pantomime is conducted, a few nobodies get their wrists slapped, and the fat cats at the top who perpetrated the initial misconducts are still there and enjoying even bigger annual bonuses.
Do you recall everyone getting let go? It wasn't all nobodies.
No idea if they've done enough or are faking it or what, but it certainly wasn't all nobodies.

A DLC subscription service? Now, that sounds like what Paradox is all about.
I expect EA to add a DLC subscription service to the next Elder Scrolls game. Instead of paying $5 for horse armor, you will then rent is for cheap $20 per month (including other DLC, of course).
I mean, they could just use their EA play pass for that. Make you get the premium version and you get all the DLC for free for $15 a month or whatever. A lot of people would view that as a bargain instead of like $100 for DLC

Problem with the modular stuff... it's been done throughout the years, multiple times by graphics card companies like nvidia, always ends up not happening like they promise. Or like the company releases one small graphics card update for a laptop model. Turns out that it's hard to do modular in a laptop, and even harder to make money doing it. Sadly they will likely go under in a couple years

9 months of (about 50) free games: $12M
110 Exclusive games: $1B
Shows you how quickly games get devalued.
Also, on average, that's about $10 million to buy an exclusive game. A huge amount to smaller titles, and a big chunk to bigger ones.

Most game developers should try making DVD/BR box games again, pay for retail shelves spaces, hosting game download/updates/mod download servers with great RELIABILITY and come back to talk about the 30% cut again.... (i don't even mention tons of other Steam features that most if not ALL game developers will not provide.

SHUT UP and make your game "properly". So I don't need to download your day one patch in GB size or paying full price to do BETA TEST for you.
Yeah what was the old retail and publisher cut? Like 50% or 75%? something like that. Back in the day when only the AAA titles really existed, and indies were non existent, or maybe only shareware that was harder to find and buy.

I think steam's cut is pretty fair with all the services they offer. Basically forever supporting and offering downloads and upgrades. Plus they will even let you generate unlimited keys for free with no cuts.

Like I don't trust epic to still be around with it's store in a decade, after they run out of fortnite money and fail to turn their store into a moneymaker.
Steam I do trust to still be around. Though I do hope that Gabe has made plans for what happens with steam after he passes hopefully a long time in the future.

Jesus, just how dumb are the workers in Alabama.

Speaking of unions, the oddest thing in the world happened yesterday. I got a letter in the mail from one of the first unions I ever joined - we're talking over 3 decades ago now - telling me to check my benefits. I don't even know how the hell they found me. Maybe I've had something sitting around collecting interest for 30+ years. Huh, I'll check in with them next week and see. And yeah, it's legit. It's the carpenter's union my pop belonged to - and a lot my family still does, as they're carpenters too.


Don't get your hopes up. Probably something like a website with some links to a few percent off to amusement park tickets. Maybe the dell discount program.
But if it's something cool, congrats!

No, no they won't. They pull in so much money from mobile games. What a stupid question. (I haven't read the article just the headline).
Things like having to display odds of lootboxes isn't likely to decrease the money much.

Dangit ubiquiti. I didn't get an email. Now i gotta study wtf is going on.

Here's the rumor:

The whistleblower, “Adam,” spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals from Ubiquiti. Adam said the place where those key administrator credentials were compromised — Ubiquiti’s presence on Amazon’s Web Services (AWS) cloud services — was in fact the “third party” blamed for the hack.

From Tuesday’s piece:

“In reality, Adam said, the attackers had gained administrative access to Ubiquiti’s servers at Amazon’s cloud service, which secures the underlying server hardware and software but requires the cloud tenant (client) to secure access to any data stored there.

“They were able to get cryptographic secrets for single sign-on cookies and remote access, full source code control contents, and signing keys exfiltration,” Adam said.

Adam says the attacker(s) had access to privileged credentials that were previously stored in the LastPass account of a Ubiquiti IT employee, and gained root administrator access to all Ubiquiti AWS accounts, including all S3 data buckets, all application logs, all databases, all user database credentials, and secrets required to forge single sign-on (SSO) cookies.

Such access could have allowed the intruders to remotely authenticate to countless Ubiquiti cloud-based devices around the world. According to its website, Ubiquiti has shipped more than 85 million devices that play a key role in networking infrastructure in over 200 countries and territories worldwide.

I almost went for a QNAP actually, they have great hardware. But not so great on the software, and the security issues are a big reason why I went for a synology, despite the significant price increase.

@FakeSpyder I've been using it for at least 10 years without issue. They do have a little popup joke, every Jan 1.
Just make sure you always get your Cheat Table directly from Cheat Engine.
Their forums (where you get the tables) are called Fearless Revolution.
If there's a new game or old I'm interested in taking the tedium out of I just google, cyberpunk 2077 fearless.
They don't mind new people asking for help, but they will bite back someone isn't polite enough to say, please or thanks.

It's fairly easy to use, if you just want extra gold, to avoid 20 trips to the vendor because your pack or strength isn't enough.
You can usually just do a search on your own, though there's probably someone working on a version already.
You can freely download Cheat Engine and the Tables.

Good links thanks. I rarely use it (maybe twice in 5 years) and always only on single player games, and always have to go search it out again.

Apparently they wanted to stop supporting it so they stopped selling it. I mean, I'd be ok with a company putting a disclaimer at the top of the page saying "not supported anymore, buy at your own risk" I'd still throw some change if it was decent and take a risk.
