No, i tried it, twice. Keep chugging that free kool-aid Vern.

I doubt it and you're just showing your ignorance again, I work with *nix stuff and only use Windows at home for games. Hahaha "koolaid". I just don't subscribe to silly "omg M$" stuff from brand loyalty tards and evaluate things based on performance and usability.

I'll be the glass is half full to your glass is half empty I guess

It's progress, slow but still progress. More than a crazy DX12 first bells and whistles game I want the Windows Store redesigned, its a fucking travesty and should be embarrassing to Microsoft.

Its on by default in Windows Spotlight which was turned on by default after I installed Windows 10. The actual setting is not obviously labeled IIRC but I can't check right now since I'm on a BSD box at work, I believe it said "Turn off tricks, tips...". It did not say "Turn on or off advertisements for your lock screen" or anything similar.

It is easily disabled but the practice itself is annoying and not a great sign of things to come IMO. All the same as long as I can disable it then it doesn't affect my day to day and life goes on. Windows 10 is otherwise stellar, I wish Microsoft would stop getting themselves into this avoidable PR silliness. Is the few extra copies of Tomb Raider sold worth the negative PR and erosion of trust with users? Telemetry I'm not a fan of but I can see the argument for crash info and etc, this is just pointless.

WTF "a great version of Windows". The kool-aid is strong that quote.

Ah, the price of free.

The ignorant derp is strong with that quote, have you even used Windows 10? It is objectively superior to Windows 7 and Windows 8. The few problems with it have stemmed from telemetry and idiotic policy initiatives like this.

Quantum Break with rumors of Forza, the new Gears and etc to follow. I'm referring to the seeming intent of bringing their games to both platforms instead of just on the crapbox.

That's fucking ridiculous, they need to revert that shit. They hide it away too, its not an obvious toggle setting to undo for casual users.

They make a great version of Windows and ruin it with stupid initiatives like this.

I'd rather see more PC games than less and getting previously exclusive games on the PC is really nice. The Windows Store is a fucking joke and a nightmare to use but hey, its progress.

I haven't started season 2 yet due to my love for American Crime Story but hopefully this weekend I'll get around to it. If you have Prime you should check out the remake of Mad Dogs sometime Blue, I suspect you'll be a fan.

The chip is fucking stupid, a pin is fucking smart. You steal my card physically you have the chip just like my number. If you use a chip card online it doesn't validate the chip then. HELL-O?

You steal my card with a pin associated to it, you essentially get nothing and a criminal wouldn't be targeting you for credit cards. Continue with the charade though...

You need both. The chip ensures the card can't be easily cloned. With a pinhole camera you can capture the PIN and easily clone the card with a reader. With the chip its much more difficult to pull that off. The banks have years of practice on this in other countries, cards with both chip and PIN are much less likely to be compromised. Not impossible but a lot less likely than cards with just a PIN associated.

Hey I love me some Pc Master race stuff like the next, but the PC elitism in terms of "if only a pc version". Seesh. Bioware do this, do whatever the fuck you want to do, if people like it they'll buy it if they don't they'll buy something else. Make it for whatever platforms you want, jeeze. You own me nothing.

Given how the "tactical" implementation was for Dragon Age Inquisition due to consolitis, I will take PC only any time and bitch as loud as I want about it. Got plenty of historical precedent to justify those concerns too

While I am in no way, shape or form on the government's side in this story, there is one thing that puzzles me:

Is it POSSIBLE to decrypt this iPhone, or not? Apple kept saying that it was impossible to do, so the government demands a back door which Apple rightfully refuses to do. However, there seem to be hints that writing a custom firmware for the phone will actually still allow it to be decrypted. If so, isn't that already a back door?

As Naga mentioned its impossible. What the Feds want is for Apple to essentially write a backdoor into iOS then trick the phone into an upgrade that would essentially remove the checks.

The argument that there is useful intel on the phone is compelling given the circumstances but does it trump privacy for all? Should Apple and everyone else just ignore historical precedent in the form of government abuse with access to this sort of information?

I say no.

News Comments > Fallout 4 DLC Plans; Season Pass Price Jump

OK, that's a phrase I never want to hear associated with Fallout. Or Elder Scrolls.

The combat in those games was jank by comparison, take off your nostalgia goggles. FO4 makes significant improvements in those areas while still retaining all of the relevant RPG bits.

An actual complaint is the mediocre implementation for PC choices. The voiced dialogue is probably to blame.

This is just to get business off impulse customers, I lost count at the number of people yesterday who said they were getting it before it went up in price. The rest of us will pick it up down the road when its cheap and complete.

Good, the AC games were really tired and formulaic. Black Flag was the last game I played and I don't plan on buying future ones until the games are dramatically re-imagined. Been there, done that.

I really hope this game will also be available on Steam and not just exclusively on the crappy Windows Store...

Hah I don't want to even load the Windows Store to find it. Place is a fucking cesspool, unbelievable that a multi-billion dollar company let it get so bad.

Amazon prime is what surprised me... Man in the High Castle was good, but Mad Dogs was fucking amazing - couldnt believe how good it was actually, for a damn amazon series

Thanks for pointing me toward Mad Dogs, gonna check it out later.

Edit: oh cool has a british original series too.
