I think that it's strange that Valve doesn't spend its billions on a high-performing Wine alternative. If they truly feel threatened by Windows, this is the way to go. It allows people to install Linux, have access to all their legacy titles, and allows Valve full control over their client. Win-win-win.

Yes I'm disappointed but not surprised that SteamOS is not making much of a dent. It was mostly huff and puff but when all the cards fell, Valve wasn't very (monetarily or otherwise) committed to moving PC gaming to Linux. It would take at least a billion dollars (not exaggerating) to get the industry to take them seriously on several fronts.

If someone is foolish enough to preorder it, they need to use a service that allows you to contest the charge weeks or months afterwards if it is a disappointment.
If you have zero impulse control and pre-order a turd, you should have to eat it.

True, to a point. What I meant to say is that if it comes out that the game is nothing like what was advertised or has game-breaking issues or whatnot, then having a way to get your money back is good.

Why are people preordering this when we've been burned so frequently in the past few years? As you say, poor impulse control....

When tech is new it's very often expensive. Give it time and prices will drop and availability can increase a lot.

An online MP-only F2P game? No, thank you!

From the gameplay I've seen so far, MH 2016 is indeed the better game.

Too little too late. Overwatch is dominating the genre. Again Blizzard has given fans of the MOBA exactly what they want and trying to sell another MOBA with the elephant in the room is a losing proposition.

Good point but I tend to disagree. Epic's biggest challenge is making a good game that is secure, stable and well optimized. If they can do that it will succeed, despite the elephant in the room that is Overwatch.

There's room for any good game in this market.

If they actually cared about the income they would have done a competent job. This reeks of bad management.

If you're talking about the analog tuner, don't lose it or throw it away. They'll charge you an exorbitant amount of money if you don't return it to them. When they insisted I have one, the installer told me I could keep it no problem, saying it was mine to do with as I pleased. Then when I terminated service they were going to charge me about $200 if I didn't give it back to them. My own luck I still had the piece of junk to return to them. Scammers!

Seems like what the feds really want with the 'funds' is cooperation in all spying (legal or otherwise) and/or any other demands that would normally be resisted on legal grounds.

we need to end the fed first.

You were doing great, up to this last phrase. Now, the question is: do you have any sensible plan for after-the-fed or is it just another lame libertarian outburst? (genuinely curious)

Ending the fed and fiat currency with their deep ties into the stock market IS the sensible plan. Thanks for asking!

The system we have now is far worse than not having it. You're expressing fear of the unknown which is not rational. You're implying that change is bad when you agree the system is evil. That's double think.

Real currencies are stable until psychopathic central bankers come in with their always clever lies and deceptions to scam the populace with a collectivized currency. You imply it would be chaos, the opposite is true. Right now our economic system is chaos and evil.

When the fed is ended in the right way, there will be a transition period where the parasitic and cancerous aspect to our economy would die. That would be healthy and necessary. Suddenly we would have a lot of people ready to take productive jobs.

Our economy as a whole has moved from production to stock market gambling so these guys are doing what our economic model promotes, just in a slightly more unethical way. Now China (and many other countries) does a lot of our production.

Our economic system of 'corporatism' encourages this behavior. So while you enjoy pointing the finger at them, look also at what we've become. If you want it to end, we need to end the fed first.

Yeah not so much the article but what we do online being considered public.

Oh yes what we do online in publicly available areas, of course. It's a public network (of networks). But the ruling says home computers should have no expectation of privacy (even data on the hard drives) if the machine is connected to the Internet..?

Have you looked at Squad? It's 25% off during the Summer Sale.

Yes I have it thank you. It's coming along! I'm sure DICE/EA is watching it's reception to gauge (gouge?) the market.

In today's digital world, it appears to be a virtual certainty that computers accessing the Internet can—and eventually will—be hacked."

So that makes it okay and legal to do? I don't think so. If the "network investigative technique" was run in a script in the browser or flash player then that's reasonable.

Notice how he said 'home computers' because we're now second class citizens behind corporations and government computers which are also connected to the same Internet. It should also apply to them as well since it's the same internet.

What a strange ruling. Home computers are okay to hack because it's inevitable to happen anyway. That's the logic he used?! Really? Did he just declare open season for hackers?
