Would publishers please stop pretending the inane babblings falling out of Michael Pachter's mouth are in any way meaningful to the rest of the world? The only thing destined to fail is Pachter. Everything else has about a fifty-fifty chance.

A bank will let people start depositing paper checks via an iPhone app? That's going to be one heck of a lawsuit when people's checking accounts get drained because someone hacked their iPhone and got a check image complete with signature.

I think the only one that can start a Microsoft death spiral is Microsoft. From what little has been released about it, Chrome OS is not much more than a stripped down Linux kernel designed to launch Google apps on a netbook.

Who at IndustryGamers.com let, "Wii Has Fewest Percentage of Active Users" out the editorial door? The title alone should be warning enough that this 'article' is not worth your time.

The retail pricing for video games are doing more damage to retail sales than the economy ever could short of a complete collapse. The digital distribution outlets have shown over and over again that price makes a huge difference, but the retail channel just doesn't get it and probably never will.

It is not the operating system that is at fault, it is the average user that bears 99.999% of the blame for the spread of botnets, worms and trojans. Giving the same users a different OS is only going to change the targeted OS, not the end result.

You cannot program to get around a clueless or stupid user. I don't care how good you think you are, there are users out there that can defeat any safety measure you put into any program with a single click of their mouse.

Allow the industry to evolve.

This is hardly industry evolution. This is greed incarnate.

Murdoch is a tool. They are Amazon's subscribers, not his. If people wanted to be buried in Fox spam, they would have subscribed to WSJ directly.

Shouldn't EA be more concerned with returning to profitability?

Better than zero off.

I agree, Frijoles, especially when GS' used price on recent titles is only $5 less than the new price. I hope this goes national!

They've been told a billion times that RFIDs are not secure, but did they listen? Maybe now someone will understand why those new passports weren't a good idea.

I hope Fox gets every penny their "news" is worth and leaves Murdoch a broken, bitter, lonely old man.

The Windows 7 "bug" is a complete joke, reported by some guy who has no idea what is going on with his PC. However, since it is about Windows 7, it has been run as fact on many clueless sites. It is a complete non-issue.

SkyFallen Entertainment lists Time of Shadows as a straight action game, not action/RPG.

The article on Hellforge is a great resource for quality Oblivion mods.

Oh, please. You have it completely wrong. Put your tinfoil hat back on and go back to your bunker.

You have to love the "testers" that over-react to some "bug" they come across and quite literally freak out over it. The response by the MS rep was the best part.

That reminded me of the story about Chicken Little. It also reminds me of all the global warming folks.

The pricing for the 360 games on demand service isn't bad, but it is no better than going to get the Platinum Hits versions of those same games. GameStop probably has used copies of all of those titles for half the price MS will be asking and you don't need BS MS points to get them.

Activision needs a serious reality check if they think they can keep the same sales numbers and raise prices. EA and Sony both used to think they could do no wrong and look where that got them.
