And as always when robots replace all these people who's going to have any money to buy anything? It's self-defeating. That was one of the major reasons for the downfall of Rome. There were so many slaves in the empire that citizens couldn't find work. And that started the whole downward spiral of bread and circuses.

So we're all going to be gladiators for the robots? :o

No, we're going to be batteries. Duh.

In any case, I do agree that it's so short-sighted the way every single corporation RUSHES to automation. Have fun not selling anything and watching all your robots just sitting there doing nothing.
Well, this is the result of largely unregulated capitalism. We have a concentration of wealth that we've not seen since the robber barons 120 years ago. Basically, only government can overcome this trend, as it's in each individual corporate interest to be as efficient as possible, and robots are cheaper and more efficient that people for most jobs. Right now, laws are 98% correlated to what companies want, and only 50% (random chance) to what people want.

At minimum we need:
- Complete ban on corporate lobbying
- Total public funding of all elections
- Double the capital gains tax to help fund Medicaid/Medicare for the increase in the roles that job loss will create
- Remove the $100K cap on the payroll tax funding Medicare.
- A 30 hour workweek, to spread remaining work among more people.
- Increase the minimum wage to $16 per hour
- Subsidize retraining programs

That's just off the top of my head. I'm sure there's a bunch more stuff that can help ameliorate this situation.


"I hate capitalism!!!" he typed out onto his iPhone, and pressed SEND, where it went out on the Internet, which was turned from a university toy into a massive, high-speed, worldwide phenomenon by trillions of dollars of private investment, and his message was read by dozens around the world, on other phones, and computers, and tablets like Star Trek had, these driven by still more trillions of dollars of private investment, where, had it been up to a government official rubbing his chin and pondering the next step, we'd still have vacuum tube TVs, and only that because of previous, un-stepped-upon capitalism.

Haha. I love the trollism of this poster. Lay on the whip. The concept of capitalism is beyond jdreyer comprehension.

Does anyone actually believe the ISP's reasons for needing to get rid of Net Neutrality?

Just on these boards, far rightists like WaltC, ledhead and shihonage believe everything Trump and the Republican right say.

But you don't believe anything that far-leftist say, right? You aren't biased at all.

As someone who doesn't have either one of the newest consoles, this works out quite well for me. We have none other than Red Dead Redemption 2 coming out quite soon and its performance on these new consoles should dazzle us. Sign me up.

As for the newest phone/pads, you have seriously diminishing returns on that stuff nowadays. My iPad Air first gen is perfectly fine. Who cares if the newest one is 8 times faster, you will barely notice it. Same thing with CPU's, etc.

I am amazed that you liked Guardians. It wasn't funny at all and boring to boot.

We use Cloudberry to S3 and tape, which is taken off-site. These guys apparently used a single backup tape and just overwrote it every night. I have seen this so many times it never ceases to amaze me.

What this doesn't tell you is that this re-imaging included laying off 30+ folks, many in IT and infrastructure, while keeping the game designers (whose poor judgement resulted in MTGO) and decision makers in place. Including leadership, who when asked during an internal town hall meeting what WotC was going to do in response Hearthstone, responded: "they aren't competing with us and we don't feel that we need to do anything"


Haha. Oh man. I knew they were morons from past ventures, but to say that Hearthstone wasn't a competitor??

Well, it does surprise me that many blame the hack vs the content of the hack for the loss. As for the plurality of votes...that is why the Electoral College was set up. Otherwise, we might as well let California vote for all of us. Nah.

It's sad when you can't even come to a game/tech news site without being bombarded by people flaming other people over silly stuff. Grow up guys.

While they are at it, Polygon can send their financial report for Crytek to review.

What college? You learn to code well by studying the work of great coders. I would suggest getting into a github project and contributing towards it, etc. It is a great way to learn the craft and work in a team environment.
