Because they do a better job? Because they handle distribution and patching? Because of the free marketing? Community resources? Steam Workshop? Shrug. I realize that people get hung up on the 30% thing, which looks obscene from a consumer's view. But that number isn't really that far out there when you look at distribution models and the assorted services being provided. That's a huge development/infrastructure/maintenance package to float for most companies....

What "free marketing"? They're paying - 30% - for it. Bandwith is cheap and so is everything else you mentioned. 30 points for essentially doing nothing is outrageous. Even if it was a full-on concierge service it would still be outrageous. Shit, I dropped using mobile payments for my biz because they charged 3% per transaction. Same reason you see more and more businesses just dealing in cash. Why would I pay them a total percentage for a single transaction that literally costs them pennies - even fractional cents in large enough volumes. Why do think Steam is worth billions? No, if I was selling games I wouldn't use Steam either.

Yeah, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind was a good flick. I too watched The Gong Show when I was a kid.

Hyperloop? Yeah, I'd be happy with a decent rail and transit service. As would most people in most cities. Who the hell is going to pay for a hyperloop? That falls into the 'interesting but utterly useless and never going to happen' category.

In a video message, Peluso, formerly the CEO of fashion startup Gilt, explained the “only one recipe I know for success.”

Well there's your problem right there, Vern.

Its ingredients included great people, the right tools, a mission, analysis of results, and one more thing: “really creative and inspiring locations.”

Problem #2.

IBM had decided to “co-locate” the US marketing department, about 2,600 people, which meant that all teams would now work together, “shoulder to shoulder,” from one of six different locations—Atlanta, Raleigh, Austin, Boston, San Francisco, and New York. Employees who worked primarily from home would be required to commute, and employees who worked remotely or from an office that was not on the list (or an office that was on the list, but different than the one to which their teams had been assigned) would be required to either move or look for another job.

How fucking boneheaded is that? So now you're not only needlessly uprooting people you're massively increasing operating costs. Most of these drones are in the sub-50k category. Well how you expect them to live in NYC, SF, etc. on that kind of salary? They can't so they'll all require massive raises. Then you need the offices and equipment which will run into the 10s of millions, if not hundreds of millions of dollars to have them in these "inspiring" places.

And lastly, as Creston noted why in the fucking fuck do they have 2600 people in marketing? That's just insane. Who hired this stupid cow? They and her need to be terminated ASAP.

Not like I'd want NC to do a new hero game anyway. Still never fails to amaze me the lack of superhero games out there.

Instead, Apple most likely even got tax payers' money in support. This is how business works nowadays: take it from the poor, give it to the rich. Robin wears a hoodie, remember?

Well of course they did. They're operating there and making use of services provided by and/or subsidized by the taxpayer and they're contributing to none of that. So not only are they not paying anything they're costing the taxpayers even more. Well maybe the Apple supporting idiots of NZ will finally wake up tot that fact.

I haven't been mini-golfing in forever. I always enjoyed it. Always had fond memories of it with my pops when we'd take a trip to the US. Usually Florida going to Disney World or the like. I'd like to own a mini-putt place.

is there going to be some class action lawsuits?

There have been many, and will likely be more. You do know lawyers like filing class action lawsuits, right? It's one of their favourite things in the world. They make the most while doing the least.

An isolated pre-agrarian tribe that isn't subjected to pollution, junk food, etc and has a heavily cardio based lifestyle and a mostly plant based diet is healthier than most other people? Gee, who would thunk it?

In short, as always, if you're a fan of BiowarEA's console CRPGs you'll like it. If you expect something good like Witcher 3 you won't.

Yeah, always loved Chuck's music.

And watching that nuke was amazing. Just think, sometime in the next 4 years you're going to have the opportunity to see these going off all over the world by the thousands. I think this would be a good time to crowdfund a Vaultec style company.
