The locations of the remaining Bose stores is a pretty good indicator of where the real luxury markets are now, and where the bulk of the 1% are living now.

You don't mention the age or the specs of this PC with Win7 on it.

Trying to install/upgrade to the latest and greatest from MS is always a nightmare on any iron more than 5 years old, unless you enjoy days of failed attempts, searching obscure driver boards for solutions, and not having the use of your system for extended periods.

In my experience any PC older than 5 years is highly suspect and should be relegated to either the recycle bin or to a simple role such as a one purpose Linux based file or media server.

This whole cutesy race thing prevalent in almost every MMO, just goes whoosh right by me. I don't get it.

Oh well, one more reason I don't sub any more to WOW or any other MMO I have played.

News Comments > Epic Games Store Sales Top $680M; Free Games to Continue All Year

So far I am 15 games the richer, and have not spent a dime.

Did that hurt Steam, nope, I still bought close to the same number of games from them in the same period.

So far Subnautica was the only Epic exclusive I lusted after and they gave that away.

I would really like to know what the burn rate is to keeping the Epic store open and offering freebies like they do, and wonder how much longer they can keep it up as they don't appear to be making any real dent in the market.

Incels get the same pass politicians, and corporate media give any hate group that targets minorities and divides the union. They get glossed over or not even mentioned when the crimes are reported.

I don't use Farcebook, it is one of the most evil corporations on the planet today.

What the article fails to mention is that Facebook and a bunch of other sites like Yahoo, like to pester you with a little tickbox when you log on that says innocently "keep me logged in". What they don't tell you is that if you check this box not only do you not have to log in next time you visit the site, but all of you internet activity after you tick that box is sent to them, not just what you do at their sites.

I don't use Farcebook, it is one of the most evil corporations on the planet today.

Nicotine Addicts:

Three reasons to not hire them and shun them in general:

* They usually are completely inconsiderate of others and willingly expose them to heavy concentrations of cancer causing second hand smoke.
* They don't care if they run up everyones health care costs when they get cancer.
* Their behavior shows poor judgment and a tendency to ignore facts.

They should reap what they have sown.

17. Re: Out of the Blue - Watching the NFL Jan 6, 2020, 06:36 Jonjonz
 
I stopped watching NFL around 2013, not because of less interest in football but because the networks stopped hiring interesting personalities to commentate and only put in cookie cutter bland stand ins that could be any local news reader. I miss the days of Howard Cosell, John Madden, Chris Berman ( I might miss all the games in a week, but never Prime Time), Pat Summeral, Frank Gifford, and Al Micheals.

Now I only watch 49ers games.

Why you should read DUNE

The author had a way with names:

Shadout Mapes, Duncan Idaho, Gurney Halleck, Shai Haluud, Thufur, Atredies, Harkoenen ...

... sorry for any misspellings, give me a break its New Years Day as I type.

The open world in RDR2 just does not look that interesting. With the other GTA games there are tons of mods and custom items like cool motorcycles, cars, planes, etc. Not so much in RDR2.

I wanted to like RDR2, but almost every video of it on U(neasy)Tube is done in the morons doing stupid stuff while guffawing like maniacs style, and I was never attracted to that side of the GTA series.

Still it's on my "buy when it goes bargin bin list" cause the price is way too proud at the moment.

Wasn't janky controls one of the major criticisms of this game? Hope that gets a work over as so many do recommend the game.

Get used to it. The president and most of the fat cat republicans and Faux News think white nationalists are "good people", that daily mass shootings of minorities is the price of keeping the gun industry in profits, while doing everything they can, with generous backing from V Putin to sow division, strife and hate between ethnic groups.

As far as Epic goes, they reaped what they sowed. The snowflake/victum defense just does not work for big rich corporations.

Two big red flags on this:

* Perfect World, purveyor's of the most egregious P2W games on the planet.

* All CGI or completely scripted trailer always means the real game play is generic or worse.
