So if I get good at this, do you think I can get a job with the Army?

For me, nothing still beats AA 1 and 2. There's just something about the original versions that were great. It just was a shame my net connection during those years was horrible. Now that it's good it seems I can't play the old AA any more.

It's funny that the Apple sheep aren't going to the Steve Jobs movie.
It's not hip enough.

No, it's not bad on the PC, but yeah, the game wasn't that good.

My room mate has one of those new rmbp.... Biggest piece of trash ever. If they don't have ghosting issues with their screens then it's pixels dying. Six months and third one later... (here's one of many threads about the dead pixel issue that most media didn't want to acknowledge https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4224029?start=0&tstart=0 great they will replace it... For how long and if your not near an apple store the means every few months your laptop is gone for 2 or 3 weeks.
Wow, just a troll article in a lot of places. A big part of their score comes from their "reviews". Like those are never biased...
Display, again ghosting is horrible on a majority of the rmbp, the airs are running cheap tft panels (but this will tell you they are amazing none the less...)
Thunderbolt was considered an innovation? It's considered a flop by most everyone else, and was pretty much dropped by most everyone for the fact it's been a flop. Again, the retina screen isn't innovation if it's got such issues as ghosting and dead pixels again. It's more beta than anything.
Software being OSX, that's a hard argument since not everyone likes using osx even, one of the reasons of boot camp.
Some of the "scoring" has no reason being scored like the reviews part since someone's first impression means zero about the reality of a laptop, and others ignored facts that should be taken into consideration. Yet such is normal with sites like these nowadays.

He already has been at EA
"Mattrick served in a variety of leadership positions at Electronic Arts and prior to his retirement in 2006"
We're talking CEO at EA, though.

Goes from one sinking ship to another. About as stupid ass a move as I can think of. Of course he is not that bright to start with and Zynga people are not much better.
He didn't have much choice in the matter, he was on the chopping block anyway.
Well according some articles... he was in negotiation for this move before Ballmer's "restructure", and Zynga favors him for a track record of turning companies around. Also, I guess even EA was considering him.
I tend to hope things were accelerated since his "get a 360" comment.

Be the head of the shittiest product launch in history: Get fired and get a job at Zynga. Seems fitting.

I really wanted to like Arma 2 but the "easy to ignore flaws" were sometimes gamebreaking bugs, like my friend's remapping of keys for his lefti-ness simply not working.
As much as I think the franchise has lots of potential, and was a massive fan of Flashpoint, after Arma and Arma 2 I think I'll wait for a demo before I risk money on this one.

Andrew Reisse is a good example of why Police should not be involving themselves in high speed chases.
It's sad, but it happens. Typically the police, if the chase gets too dangerous, will back off, but if they're chasing felons they are going to keep going as long as they can.
I'd hate for the standard to become that any criminal can get away as soon as he breaks 80mph...
I hope they caught the bastards and put them on the electric chair.

Amazon is definitely improving, but considering how awful it was and largely still is, it would be hard for it not to.
Amazon is awful? I pay 80 bucks a year for free shipping, and I get free access to a metric hojillion movies and tv shows for free, which stream and play fine in primo quality. How is this awful?

Okay, I'll bite. What do you think Gates is being naive about? Because frankly, while I can think of plenty of adjectives for Bill Gates, naive isn't one I would use.
His philanthropy. He is going about it the wrong way. He is pouring millions and millions of dollars into non-profit organizations that have been proven to be innefective, corrupt and inneficient. He should look to Elon Musk to see how its done for example. Invest in technology that will have a huge long term beneficial effect for humanity, renewable energy for one or something or other that is not really that profitable or is pushed under the rug by the oil/gas lobby.
Or if he wants to give to charity, he should concentrate on the charities that help people in the US (and I say this as a non US citizen). The US has a shitload of poverty related social problems, and the biggest of them has to be education. Its also much easier to track the money in that case and he could make sure that the money gets to those who need it the most. The most powerful country in the world should also be the best educated, this is the only way that real change can be made in the world. Throwing money at Africa wont change anything of significance.
