Think I'm going to wait until generation two, and even then still go with Vive or another competitor. If it had been $399 from the start, I'd have picked up one immediately, but how they tried to go the route of proprietary software, DRM, screwing over preorder customers - it all left a bad taste in my mouth for this company.

I'm glad that things aren't so far gone that Republican lawmakers couldn't scoff at this. If they'd all nodded in agreement, I'd be seriously worried. Trump can't admit the election was tampered with, because that makes him an illegitimate president, which he is. The Comey last-minute "investigation", Russian leaks that cast doubt on Hillary, the insane amount of propaganda pumped into social media by the Russians all worked to sway the election just enough so a completely unqualified buffoon won out over an unlikable, but supremely qualified candidate.

The election wasn't "hacked" in the manner that Russians hacked voting machines, but it was definitely heavily influenced by outside factors. Considering around 50% of people get their news ONLY from Facebook and social media feeds, and Russians flooded their feeds with lies and propaganda, that isn't something to ignore.

The fact Trump's campaign was in constant contact with Russia and actively seeking information to hurt his opponent, while some of his workers were active foreign agents or met with Russian spies then conveniently "forgot" all of it, and then Trump immediately wants to lift sanctions on Russia and now wants to start working with them...that's scary stuff.

I wonder if once this Etherium thing crashes and burns if the markets will be flooded with used high-end video cards for cheap. I can't imagine these people would want to sit on 5, 10, 20 video cards once they are making a $1 a day. Better to sell the cards and get some of their money back, than wait until a year or two when the cards are selling for 1/2 of what they paid.

Zero evidence of voter fraud, yet we need to create a voter fraud commission. Plenty of evidence of corporate pollution, global warming, corporate fraud, yet we need to cut the CFPB, EPA, and other vital agencies. Republicans know the only way they can retain the government is through voter suppression, gerrymandering and locking up minorities and charging as many as possible with felonies so they lose their right to vote.

Without the flash sales, the "Sales" are worthless anymore.

I'd rather have the opportunity to buy games at amazing discounts and risk buying crap games that I'm stuck with, than have steam returns and all discounts are lackluster.

Blah. One of like 3 shows that I (re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re)watch on Netflix.

Although I've pretty much memorized most episodes, if I can't sleep, Futurama is comfortable enough that I can fall asleep easier if it's on.

This guy, Pai. Likes to lie.

The worst thing about this idiot is how every time they screw consumers, he tacks on "it increases competition" and is a boon to consumers. Get rid of net neutrality? It's great for consumers. People with cell phones can be spammed in their voicemail inbox? It's a bonus to consumers. He never explains *how* giving cable companies and telecoms everything they want and removing consumer protections helps consumers, it just does.

"actively working to determine how best to prevent such an incident from occurring in the future and will update our customers" That's a bit optimistic. If that were my password manager, I'd be switching to a competitor right now.

"Much larger than its highly-awarded predecessor, Divinity: Original Sin"

The first one was pretty darn huge, and this one is bigger? Awesome game. Very few complaints except by the end, I felt like the same combos over and over were most effective (unless an enemy had resistances).

Looks like "V for Vendetta" is coming a bit early. As usual, the scary "terrorists" and "pedophiles" are used as excuses to implement fascist government authority over law-abiding citizens. I like that they lump "terrorism" in with "porn" as things that both cause "harm".

The GOP and their cronies aren't even trying to hide it anymore. "We've got all 3 branches of government and we work solely for our corporate sponsors, so F *all* 'ya'll constituents!"

donnie understands trade, coal, women, immigration, congress, law, the constitution and watersports.

His immigration bans and hostility towards visitors to the US has harmed our tourism industry. His healthcare plan would harm the healthcare industry while simultaneously chilling our economy, as panicked citizens see their healthcare skyrocket, and stop spending. His trade tariffs would cause the cost of goods we all buy to go up tremendously, while creating no new jobs. The only jobs he's created is the jobs that were already planned on being created before he took office. So far, the only thing he's done is crack down on immigration, support a tax cut for the richest Americans that was called a "healthcare plan" and nominate the judge he was told to nominate. The "deal-making businessman" seems to be very bad at making deals and business. Then again, looking at his track record of bankruptcies and fraud, it is to be expected.

Yeah, I guess no one *has* to do anything. You don't need electricity, you even need a computer? We've got a mail system that will get that resume to an employer in about 5 days instead of 5 milliseconds. Republicans are idiots. Yes, I need the internet for my job. No, I have no competition, not even DSL. I have to move gigs of data, so no, wireless doesn't cut it. The Republican party is bought and paid for by corporate interests, and has no allegiance to the citizens they are supposed to be governing.

US launchs 50 tomahawk missiles into Syria.
Good thing the ATF used fire instead of Sarin gas.
Just something to think about.

Pretty sure Trump was desperately looking for something, anything to take attention away from the investigations and scrutiny of his obviously corrupt administration. Assad did something really stupid and now Trump has his excuse to wag the dog. Hopefully this doesn't turn into something major with Russia.

Hope he has fun in prison with all of those Wells Fargo, Enron, and Volkswagen executives that are in there.

"He was born in Mobile County in 1955, raised on the family farm, has lived his entire life in District 102 and is a graduate of Mary G. Montgomery High School"..."married to his wife, Bobbie, for 40 years and together own and operate the J Bar W farm where they raise cattle, timber, and hay."..."Representative Williams and his wife are members of Wilmer Baptist Church.". Sounds like a worldly and educated fellow.

I don't recall seeing ANY Blue's posts about this ISP selling thing for the 7.5 YEARS OBAMA ALLOWED IT. Hypocrisy FTW.

Obama's administration was the one that put all of these rules into place to protect consumers once it was revealed ISPs had no intention of protecting that sensitive data. It took awhile to get the rules in place. As the GOP is realizing, it takes a lot of time and effort to enact meaningful legislation and laws that aren't terrible. The GOP had 7 years to craft replacement healthcare and what they came up with looked like something junior high kids slapped together over a weekend. Aside from rich people, plutocrats and corporate plunderers, the GOP party is terrible for the entire country, and they prove it time and again.

It's probably not as bad as it seems, because the Witcher 2 and 3 probably drove thousands of people to buy many more copies of his books than would have been sold otherwise.
