Already experienced Walmart's pricing strategy looking for a heated throw for my sister-in-law. $27 online, $20 in-store. Got lucky this time, since I hadn't bought it yet. I'll end up buying more from Amazon now, though, since I compare prices online before ever considering getting in the car and going shopping.

Disney's big bet had better be a whole lot of zero-rating agreements with ISP's or it won't matter whose tech they've got up their sleeves.

It's been no problem to find pre-sale stock so I'm not sure its selling that well, unless their distribution chain is just that robust. All of their language has been vague PR stuff about it, no specific figures. They put out a "limited edition" which sold out quickly but any new tech toy sells out at launch. Hell the Wii U sold out at launch for awhile.

The most powerful console EVAR...to play Cuphead and Minecraft on. Well done guys.

There have now been two separate waves of pre-ordering. The first sold out very quickly, which is why they added a second one.

The hardware upgrade is very nice, especially if you have a non-S version. My only complaint with the new hardware is that they're still using tiny drives internally. I have 6TB of external space on my current Xbox One, so that won't be an issue, but it still bothers me.

It's important because we nee... OH WILL SOMEONE PLEASE BUY AN XBOX??? PLLEEEEAASSEE.

It still baffles me that the XboXOneX (Triple X Bone?) is apparently pre-selling so well. I mean, what are you poor schmucks who are pre-ordering one going to play on it?
I don't know who the schmucks are to which you are referring, oh bitter one, but here's what I plan to play on mine when I get it:

4K Blu-ray movies, Blu-ray movies up-converted to 4K, all of my Xbox One games, many of my Xbox 360 games, and some Xbox games because they're now backward compatible.

I'd get a ticket if they'd let me use virtual money.

If anyone other than Verizon had even a half-assed signal where I live, I would switch in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, the closest anyone gets is eighth-assed, which is T-Mobile, or sixteenth-assed, which is a tie between AT&T and Sprint, both of whom required playing a form of Hide-and-Go-Seek to find a signal while remaining indoors. T-Mobile just has a weak-to-suddenly-nonexistent signal, with random bits of decent connection scattered here and there.

Mid-term elections aren't that far off and a lot of folks up for re-election would like to be able to say they helped pass a law "to protect children" and "stop the purveyors of sex", especially if they're in Midwestern or Southern states. This law won't end up doing anything but moving the crimes to somewhere else on the Internet while driving many Internet companies out of business.

The part that sucks about the Dish lawsuit is that you have to have a recording of the call to get any money. The only ones who win here are the lawyers for both sides.

Because Mike O'Reilly and Ajit Pai are literally human garbage, and probably ordered their 'guards' to assault people? Because the president recommends physically assaulting people who disagree with you, and suing the press?


The answer you're looking for is, "Because we now live in a banana republic."

Also, not sure why the word 'Manhandling' is in quotes as if they weren't actually manhandled. When you shove someone into a wall, and forcibly remove them from a building, that's just manhandling, not 'manhandling.'

They wanted to show physically what they're doing to consumers' rights metaphorically.

Considering how many flaws Cisco has had to patch in their own stuff, they must be speaking for themselves and their products, not just projects. IoT is certainly not going away, but manufacturers and vendors had better start securing things or it will remain the hodgepodge of garbage that it currently is for quite some time to come.

If Comcast means in the "you'll do things the way we tell you to or you won't get to do them at all" way, then yes, they are like Apple.

They were a victim of people's outrage and their shitty servers couldn't handle it, that's all.

Most schedules look good, right up until you can't meet it and have to push things back a few months.

This article is most certainly pretentious and spends an inordinate amount of time citing the works of various authors who have attempted to posthumously psychoanalyze H.P. based solely on his fiction, rather than spending most of its space on laying out in a concrete fashion just why video games cannot be Lovecraftian. It seems more that the author doesn't care much for video games in general, and horror games in particular, and feels that video games are a waste of time and energy that could be better used to belittle people that read comic books and watch television.

If the music industry had even tried keeping up with the times, piracy would be a footnote. The RIAA has no one to blame but themselves and the absolute boatloads of crap they try to pass off as music for any drop in revenue they think they see.
