"You want a prediction about the weather, you're asking the wrong Phil. I'll give you a winter prediction: It's gonna be cold, it's gonna be grey, and it's gonna last you for the rest of your life."

I repeat that one every year, it remains my favorite quote from the movie

So can they release you on hour 73 and take you into custody again for 72 hours indefinitely? That seems ripe for exploitation...

No if they did this repeatedly they could potentially jeopardize future charges against you and it could be construed as harassment. There's probably also some potential damages/liability if it was serious enough. Lost reputation, wages, mental grief etc.

Anyways I'm an awful forum lawyer so you should probably google up on this

Arrested without charges?

I always thought, call me naive, that an arrest requires a warrant and a warrant requires a charge.... silly me, right?

It's a complex subject and varies from state to state but generally speaking, you can be held for up to 72 hours before prosecutors are forced to decide whether to charge/release you. The police do not need a warrant to arrest you if they have probable cause is my understanding and I'm sure there is more to that.

I don't know, reading that their failure rates are consistent with industry norms now. It seems like they will never live down the 3TB MD0001 debacle during the Thailand flood. I already see people parroting Seagate has 29% failure rates on other forums but they don't seem to realize they're looking at annualized rate based on a single model drive failure in a pool of 60 drives LOL.

I'm not sure I would call their testing scenarios realistic for end users either but oh well.

I'm not worried about it, these movements eat themselves from within once the infighting starts. It's all Moral High Ground until the accused is someone they identify with and then the cause devolves into factions.

Anyways this whole thing was shameful and pointless.

Even with improvement, I just don't see the adoption picking up. They're in a 5 way race against competitors who are years beyond them in functionality.

Microsoft Xbox FIFA Horizon 4, with all new Ultimate Team mode where players are gained by lootbox.

Microsoft and EA, a match made in hell.

Since Trumpís Election
DOW Up 32%+
Markets Increased $8 TRILLION
Economic Growth TOPS 3% 2 QTRs
Consumer Confidence 17 YR HIGH
Unemployment Rate 17 YR LOW
Jobless Benefits 45 YR LOW
Food Stamps 8 YR LOW

Anecdotally, I think the tax package is being very well received by businesses. I haven't seen this much enthusiasm in my industry in a very long time. There are a lot of companies opening up and larger companies coming back, making significant capital asset investments in the process. For all of the doom and gloom on CNN/Fox about social issues, at least it seems like the economy is running fairly well.

On topic, I think this will be a good fit for whatever VR gear I decide on this year. I was following the EA stuff for this game but I wanted to wait until its done. For awhile I got into a bad habit of getting into early access games, playing them too much and being burned out at release before getting the more polished experience.

They need to actually ship first party games again at some point for this to matter

It would be a good deal for release titles that would otherwise cost $50+, assuming you remember to cancel the sub when you beat it.

lol, man you guys never disappoint. Not enough comments though, I'll go on twitter and read some more Last Jedi threads. Fill up my daily crazy internet readings.

Some people not liking the frankly godawful Microsoft Store is "crazy internet readings" apparently? Ok then. Funny how you always seem butthurt when Microsoft is impugned.

I don't know, I thought this looked shallow and mediocre. The fighting mechanics look floaty and awful. The environments look like a boring painting. The enemy variety (so far) has been some fucking sharks and skeletons. The only thing that they really seemed to put serious time into was the water which admittedly looks cool.

I like the concept but I don't think Rare has what it takes to pull it off and most of the feedback from friends in the alpha wasn't good. The marketing videos for this game are also some of the most cringeworthy shit I've ever seen.
