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.

A friend and I played through the original Night Trap in one night. We rented the game and the Sega CD unit to use with my friend's Sega Genesis, so we got our money's worth there. It was pretty cheesy and involved remembering the sequence of events in the proper order to beat the game. Still, it was a decent use of FMV at the time.

News Comments > Vivendi and Ubisoft to Finally Get a Room?

Vivendi really needs to stop buying video game companies, unless they're dead set on going under at some point. Their track record in video games is horrible, with Atari as a prime example of how to take a well-respected brand and drive it mercilessly into the ground and bury it forever. Since they're trying to acquire their way into profitability, I doubt they're doing very well in any aspect of their businesses, so buying more companies is only going to accelerate their eventual demise.

My Windows 10 tablet is convinced there is a virus in the Evil's Doom download. I'd rather not play it than find out it was right.

That has to be illegal in most, if not all, states, especially when dealing with juveniles. This is access to evidence, kind of like how the poor and elderly are going to end up with access to healthcare.

The version on GOG.com comes with the original game, as well as the EE version. If you already have the original, you'll still have it. If not, buying the EE version will be the only way to get it on GOG now.

Nick Denton killed his own company with his reckless pursuit of ever more shocking and sensationalist headlines and content. It was only a matter of time before he was sued out of existence.

Why would the FCC be involved anyway? Antitrust is a matter for the DOJ.
Their job is to prevent and find conflicts of interest, before federal laws are broken. Since it's inception more than 100 years ago, it uses regulation to prevent crimes. Just like the FDA inspects and regulates food safety by setting standards and doing inspections. Of course all agencies have been undermined since the 1980s, by defunding so they can't do their job. It's based on increasing corporate profits and bankrupting the agencies so they can be overthrown, just like schools.
Under the new regime, the FCC's job is to rubber stamp anything anyone wants to do, especially if it screws the public.

Ajit doesn't want a digital divide, he wants a digital chasm so wide that it cannot be crossed!

This looks like it has real potential, especially with being able to run your own server for co-op games. The P&P RPG looks interesting, too.

Since Trump doesn't bother with intel or security briefings anyway, and he's Putin's bitch, his opinion of anything doesn't matter in the slightest.

So, AMD finally admits their drivers were terrible? Now it's just their hardware? If their drivers don't suck anymore, they did when it was ATi, when they had decent and competitive hardware. Now it's reversed, AMD? Fun times.
In my own experiences, AMD have decent and competitive hardware now and their drivers haven't sucked since the Catalyst era started. Nvidia, on the other hand, has had far more issues with hardware and drivers both over the last 5 - 10 years, as well as driver issues since the turn of the century.

A one-sided scare piece. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see this as a catalyst for yet another Trumpian pronouncement of something that just has to be stopped.
