That is a thing, other countries can easily bypass the US laws of encryption. Where privacy is more of a public concern they can just forget the US laws and laugh at it, which it deserves.

And for the gamersgate article/emo-post link. Omg wall of text headache inbound. Not worth my time to read more then the opening paragraph.

Yeah pretty much, deregulation and free market tactics where your only morality is "how much money can I make for my shareholder's" made this guy and lets more guys be like him.

You can single him out as a problem, but you have to realize the environment for this guy to even exist is still 100% there and will only make more.

Add 4K to the upcoming list of failures after VR flops.

Have you even seen 4K? Run GTA:V in 4K? I have, I've run everything I could on 4K and its amazing. I fully expect 4K to be a legit future. If so inclined, go to a store and look at working 4K screens, you will go back to your home and see your non-4K screen and wonder why you do not have a 4K already.

VR I want to exist but outside of a Star Trek Holodeck experience I'm going to have doubts.

Wow, XCOM is that popular? I couldn't get into the original DOS versions. I wonder if I will like the newer games. Are there playable demos of any of the newer XCOM games?

Actually yes, yes there is a demo off Steam for the X-com I enjoy, http://store.steampowered.com/app/200510/

I hated the original games myself, I wanted to like them, but they were pretty difficult. The new Xcom: Enemy Unknown is alot more forgiving and easier to access, I feel. I enjoyed it enough to play through the game complete, twice.

Yes barbarian democracies and freedom of speech are wishful thinking, clearly the State knows best and should have the last word on the interpretation of any such concepts. Kamarad ZeroPike1 you have fully grasped the concept of one Volk, one State, one Fuhrer. I applaud you. Sieg Heil!

Are you living on the same planet as the rest of us? Humans are humans, and without government to submit laws to the people and the people respect those laws, you wind up with crap like Somali pirate life. Where your freedom of speech means nothing to the guy holding the gun to your head demanding your life in return for something.

Or you have something to actually add or just being trolling trash in this topic?

The difference is nobody visiting those places you linked would (i hope) hack their hand off because they (teenager) thought they blasphemed, then take that hand and present it to their preacher and finally being praised for it by the parents (just happened in Pakistan, even in the news ~.~)

I mean, I agree not everything is rosy here in the western world, but at least nobody here thinks THAT is sane.

Cutter was imo just confusing things, education is fixing stupid. That's proven time and time again throughout history even (Ancient Rome). Education is not fixing crazy or insanity.

Thats pretty much my reasoning behind saying that there needs to be controls in place to try to prevent things like that. Censoring video's but yet allowing them to happen at all is a good start. It will take a long time to alter what is happening there, to begin to come to western idea's of free speech. Have to start somewhere and this would be it I think.

You kind of have to control the population this way. Western people probably see it as a reduction of speech. It is.

But considering how the population reacts to even the slightest mention of something in even a slight way, people end up dying from it. Control on some level must be maintained because the population in question cannot control itself, so its up to government.

The videos they will block and control are not some stupid troll in his mom's kitchen complaining about government. This is control of video's that will incite mob mentality and destabilize everyday life.

I think you would be an ideal candidate for a position in the Gestapo. You've got what it takes mein Herr.

So when somebody accuses you of burning a religious text, and they find where you live. The angry mob comes to your home. Your going to sit there and say to them, "I'm glad the government did not help control you or the source of the claim. And you came to my home to kill me for something I did not do. I applaud your freedoms!" And then you get stoned.

Its civilization 101, Control. On some level for everybody. I'm just putting it bluntly, openly and honestly in my original text. Least I'm honest with it and not living in a fantasy freedom land.

If you look at the far cry 4 engine, really you only need to retexture the game, alter some mechanics and new VO, art work. Slap on a new title and release a Far Cry sequel.

I played ARK for a while. That was enough cave man like life for my tastes, for a long time. I sense this game is merely following it.

I imagine the person cutting the cables, walks in with a Guy Fawkes mask, wire cutters. Sneaks around and hits just the right cables to insure chaos.

Cable companies are crazy as it is, with endless rate hikes and un-competetion with each other. I honestly would only be mad at the person doing it, if he broke my connection to the internet. Otherwise good on ya for underground fighting the man!

Its gone up every year. It always went up. There is no such thing as a ISP/Cable prices going down until actual competition arrives.

So glad to be out of that crap. $ a month for remote leasing! Go right to hell with that bs.

But whats the best knee-jerking reaction and easy way to ignore an entire situation in a semi-volatile region? play the censorship card.

China can do the same thing with the internet, its the way they control government party power. America data collects to combat terrorism, Middle East censorship to control religious speech. Russia to control politics.

Education isn't a thing really alot of "smart" folks made these policies anyways. Its just different per region, per government.

Probably putting this back on the radar's for YouTube consumption. Much like how Trouble in Terrorist Town did ok on YouTube for a while.

If on YouTube with my preferred let's players I will enjoy the laughs. But buying it again from the original base version in my steam catalog, no.

News Comments > Vivendi Sells Activision Stake
22. Re: Vivendi Sells Activision Stake Jan 17, 2016, 13:06 ZeroPike1
 
Vivendi today announced that it unwound the hedge on its remaining 41.5 million Activision Blizzard shares (representing 5.7% of the video game publisher’s common shares) and sold its entire position to a financial institution for net proceeds of US$1.1 billion (approximately €1 billion). The unwinding of this hedge allows Vivendi to recover a cash deposit of US$0.4 billion.

IN other words unloading there steak in the company at a 400,000 profit from when they bought it.

The decision to implement these transactions was taken in view of the evolution of the Activision Blizzard stock price.

IN other words things are not looking so good to make alot of money fast enough for them to warrent holding onto the stock.

The hedge was set up in June 2015 and covered 100% of the value of the Activision Blizzard shares, denominated in US dollars. It was accomplished using a zero-cost collar with a maximum term of 18 months.

Banker/Investment Maths lol

I want to have win 10, but having my wife's new PC next to me, and seeing how much trouble we are having getting the basic admin rights organized, Win10 can as a previous person put it "sod off"

Aside from that its not a bad program, but this hidden admin crap needs to be an option at the start. Not an after thought requiring you to Google a solution.

If you make and OS that requires people to Google for solutions online, you have failed at it.
