Looks like some executives and some lawyers are getting bonuses for Christmas this year, because that is a horrendously low settlement amount, if it passes judicial muster. That's less than 50 cents per account affected, in case anyone was wondering.

I see both of them in my library on GOG, so I know what I'll be kicking off when I get home from work tonight. :-)

Unfortunately hate speech, like poison, only takes a small amount.

Still plenty of total mis-information, lies, deep fakes and total misrepresentations as well as kook nuts wailing about vacines, or common sense, or not wearing masks in a pandemic.

Speech without liability is chaos and poison to democracy.
230 needs to go.
Irresponsible social media needs to be held liable.
So you'd rather shoot the messenger, rather than blame the source? That's like wanting to blame the company whose name is on the soap box the deluded ranter is standing on while speaking, rather than the deluded ranter.

Meanwhile, in southern Arizona, we're having a lot of upper 80's and some 90's this month to go along with our COVID surge.

Stephanie looks much more like the character than the Riot employee does, that's easy enough to see. The cat is also another point in her favor, although I have no idea what she expects to get out of this or what she wants Riot to do, if anything. It also reads kind of like an April Fools joke, except it isn't funny at all.

Good looking screenshots are pretty easy. Good looking games that don't run like slideshows on modest hardware, not so much.

This video should be delayed for three years, minimum. This is why I don't do video channels at all, too many people with too much time on their hands and no idea what they're talking about. Just like the White House the last four years...

The slowdown of the cyberpunk delay yes.

This post is about the PoE delay. Which was caused by the cyberpunk delay. Originally Grinding Gear's plan was to come out a month after cyberpunk. They rejiggered it to again come out a month after.

As the above news story says.
My post is in response to what Blue wrote, "Since the Cyberpunk setback is due to the next generation consoles...", along with the accompanying link to show where I got that information.

Can some ELI5 what Section 230 is?

As far as I understand it, it means blue can let us post things on his website without fear of being legally liable for them, to an extent.
Pretty much completely correct. There are limitations for unlawful things, but anything that is not illegal would be protected, as would Blue.

Zuck is an idiot if he thinks changing Section 230 is going to be a good thing, because the only way it will be changed is to narrow its protections. That won't benefit anyone with that allows users to post their own content, something Facebook, Twitter, et al, base their continued existence on.

The problem for the FCC, aside from being incompetent toadies for the most corrupt administration in US history and not being speech police for the Internet in any way shape or form, is that they decided ISPs aren't part of Title II when they nuked the Net Neutrality rules and that they (the FCC) had no jurisdiction to regulate them in any way. This pre-emptive shooting of their own foot keeps them from being able to do anything with the unConstitutional blathering of the Mango Moron via his crayon-written 'order'.

That's a contract between two companies, one that provides Google placement in iOS as the default search engine for a specified period of time at a specified price, not a nefarious plot. If you could not change from the default, THAT would be a nefarious plot. Considering all the other things that need to be taken care of in this country right now, a grandstanding parlor show of a lawsuit as a way to distract from the complete disaster going on with the COVID-19 pandemic is hardly the best use of time, money, and the courts.

If the government doesn’t want people to sell search engine defaults. Simply make it illegal. How can you sue the person that paid the highest price for it? Stupid.
It depends on what, if any, conditions are applied to that purchase of default search engine. If they pulled an Intel and made it so that no other search engine could be set as the default in any browser installed onto said company's devices (phones, laptops, PCs, tablets, etc.) by the company they paid for this, then there will be some trouble for Alphabet's Google division, just as there was for Intel when they got caught making kneecapping agreements with PC and laptop builders. That would be on top of any discovery of search result shenanigans that put Google's chosen results at the top of the list, should that be happening as well.

I don't blame him for wanting to stay in a country that actually understands how to stop the spread of COVID-19 and is willing to do so, unlike here in the US.

The Boys took a nose-dive in quality this season. Sad. It was very promising in the first season.
I found the backstory information interesting, especially as to how it affected present motivations. It is definitely gorier and more sex-oriented than the first season, but I don't think it is of less quality.

You want me to bypass steams horseshit 30% cut and buy it on GoG? Sure, cdpr. I'd say you've earned it. Done.
This makes more sense when you're talking about Epic, because GOG also charges a horseshit 30% cut to other developers/publishers.

I also think it's weird the game is the same price on Steam as it is on GOG. If only altruism is the incentive to get the game on GOG, well... good luck with the gamers.
Altruism, no DRM at all, plus the ability to download a fully-functional copy of the game you can install on whatever PC you like.

While I don't mind getting a token payment from class action settlements (tuna, RAM, monitors, etc.), I find it difficult to see just how this suit could possibly succeed id Microsoft decides to take it to court. Mechanical parts wear out, period, and the harder someone is on their controller, the faster that controller will wear out. Unless this turns out to be like the capacitor issue from a decade or so ago, there's no way Microsoft should be held liable for controller 'drift'.

I'm pretty sure the definition of 'supply issue' is not enough supply, which makes this a supply issue. Doesn't matter where the lack comes from.
