Gab hacked, guess they are too busy to work on security and prefer running in circles chasing the latest most outrageous rumors and nut-ball conspiracy theories.

While it stings that multinational corporations providing internet access seem cherry pick which locales get moderate to premium service first, the real stinker here is the huge outpour of corporate welfare via the government subsidies (not loans) to build out a system they will reap all the profits from.

The message drummed by corporate owned media of course is:

Government assistance to low to moderate income citizens equals evil communism.

Government assistance to wealthy multinational corporations is "progress."

Ever since Citizens United, "they" (private companies) are recognized by law as citizens/persons, so your guilt is misplaced.

Microsoft is launching a free website builder.
Hopefully it's better than FrontPage used to be. I'd rather ask Clippy to write a web page for me than use that horrific nightmare (I never actually had to use it, but I played with it a couple times just for shits and giggles). And given Microsoft's track record, I doubt they can do better than some of the other popular modern site builder services that already exist.

I gave FrontPage a go way back around 1998 and after about 6 months tossed it. At the time you were better off just learning basic HTML and coding pages from scratch because FP pages were flakey as hell and if you tried to modify them in the least they would get all buggy and impossible to then figure out where the problem was.

So isn't Apple having to hand over similar info to Epic, it's usually tit for tat in the discovery phase.

As long as saps Biker are dumb enough to pre-order hyped games, and/or buy new games on day one of release, these kinds of hijinks will continue or more than likely increase in frequency.

There is no better example of regulatory capture than the U.S. patent office. It' is so understaffed and completely oblivious to how modern technology and online activity works, thanks to the way multi-national corporations have lobbied to shape it over the years.

The justice systems in most countries now are still totally oblivious to how new technology and online markets work. Tim is indeed looking for a toe-hold when at least one of these cases goes his way when a court is more impressed with his lawyers than the underlying law and principles.

In the real world Apples "if we sell it for you, and your thing involves any online financial transaction, a) it has to go through us, and b) you owe us a cut of that in perpetuity" would never fly. Imagine buying a coffee maker from Best Buy and the fine print says from now to eternity every coffee filter you buy for it has to be bought from Best Buy or if you want to buy a coffee filter anywhere else via mail order, you have to order it through Best Buy and you have to pay Best Buy a percentage over whatever the other source is charging.

Yea, for EA to continue to promote and sell the Codemasters previous driving series while they are still cranking out NFS, should be taken as seriously as Detroit was when it introduced "economy cars" that were purposely made as ugly and crappy as possible so as to not cut into the sales of their mainstay land barges.

I am all for equal rights, but in today's general environment of Fuckbook nurtured hostility and after 4 years of a POTUS who's main talent was spewing infantile putdowns at anyone who crossed him, little miss Sarkeesian wanna-be needs to realize that when any person has any online presence, they are sure to get personally attacked by someone.

Until they improve performance I wouldn't bother. Even with a RTX 3080 I'm only getting 30-40fps, with drops to single digits.
Lucky for them they have about 10 more years before release. So graphic card perf should double by then.

Naw, Chris always piles ever more feature creep that keeps the game perpetually beyond any PC performance increases.

If anyone was paying attention back when Russia was re-acquiring it's satellites after they broke away under Gorby, here is how it worked. Thanks to the new internet, Vladimir had his boys start posting on social media in support of racist hate groups in these countries, and once enough gullible hooligans were found, funneled money to them and suggestions on where and when to riot. Things like take the TV station, block the streets and generally cause chaos "forcing" Russia to step in and re-establish order.

So once again the racists in the US have a Russian funded mouthpiece where they can plot more flaky insurrections and most likely will graduate to Oklahoma city level shenanigans.

This concept of you can only play the game if you bought it from us is NOT going to fly.

Also for those closet Nazis lurking, when satire crosses the line into hate speech and promoting racism, it is no longer protected speech but illegal in most civilized countries.

Trailer with nothing but still frames of custom CGI and a few still frames from the ingame cam. Suspicious the CGI and the ingame stills look totally unlike each other.

If a game trailer does not show actual ingame play action, the game is almost always a turd.

Gamesworkshop: As long as we get paid, we could care less these games made with our IP are absolute crap.

This is one case where I wish some game conglomerate like EA or Ubi would buy out Gamesworkshop and stop the diarrheic flow of awful games based on this wonderful IP.

According to Wikipedia's definitions "Anti-muslim activist" is an oxymoron.

Third String White Supremacist Nazi Racist would have been a better set of adjectives to describe the person referred to.

I heard a conspiracy theory that Sergey and Brin are a front and that SRI created it under contract for CIA/NSA/NIS to gain early control and tracking of the internet. They prefer to be the ones asking questions, so forget about 'customer service.'
