There's really only one way to make everything secure from super AI: don't connect everything to external networks. Ala Battlestar Galactica. No amount of computer security is going to protect you from the ultimate computer.

Hoping for 4 player couch coop. Diablo 3 does this so well I never understand why every game in the genre doesn't.

I don't know, giving your underage kid alcohol is kind of crazy in my book. Regardless of the law. Maybe it's different in America. What do I know, you guys can own guns from age 16 right?
The point isn't whether or not I condone underage drinking. The point is that drinking can be a pretty serious thing. Studies show it does have a negative impact on developing minds (up to about 25 years old in fact). And then of course drinking irresponsibly can be dangerous to yourself and others (especially with vehicles). And yet underage drinking is still legally left to parental discretion (in Texas; not sure other states). I feel like smart phone usage is much less serious yet under scrutiny for more government control. It makes no sense.

How can this be enforced? It's not even illegal for my child to drink alcohol so long as I, the parent, am there and the one providing it. But the government is going to tell me I can't decide to let my child use a smartphone?

I'm in Texas so this isn't applicable to me yet. But still. It's my job to parent, not yours Government nanny.

Justice was served today with the guilty verdict for that mentally disturbed woman.
Really? Justice? Scary fucking precedent is what it is. You can now be held accountable for telling someone to do something if they lack the sense and judgement not to literally do it? I'm sorry, but if I'm pissed and tell you to go fuck yourself with a shotgun, and you do it and end up dead, that is not my fault you're that stupid.

Depends on how big Adam Sandler's role in it is.

Why do Apple, Google, and 95 other tech firms hate America so much?
I believe the claim is that Americans are lazy, entitled, useless fuckwits. The only people chasing the American Dream and working hard to innovate are immigrants who are tired of whatever shit hole they came from and thus highly motivated to be successful. But they too degenerate after a few generations, so the cycle must be allowed to continue or there will be no one left in the United States to drive businesses forward.

Are people finally getting tired of paying top tier pricing for 5 year old tech?
at least there was a time when you could justify it by saying the operating system "just worked." But even Mac OS is shit now. Unstable, slow, buggy, inconsistent.. it's a total mess. I switched from PC to Mac back on Snow Leopard, but it's time to switch back now. Apple no longer makes decent computers even without considering the Apple Tax price factor.

What do you mean, "Need, or want"?

Oh, wait, that's right... we should allow safe havens of operation for criminal scumbag pieces of shit so they can hide evidence of their crimes. Hey, here's an idea... Why don't we also make a type of drug house that law enforcement will never be allowed to enter or put surveillance on. Why stop with drug houses? Let's give murderers, child rapists, and any other criminal the right to keep their crimes a secret by claiming their right to privacy is being violated.
You went and got your barcode tattoo and GPS microchip under your skin too right? I mean you're not breaking the law so no worries, eh? Until you've done that, shut your pie hole you freedom hater.

or vaccines.

No need to study vaccines anymore, all the studies prove that they work.
Cool. Triumph of physics that must be that all the [existing] studies prove that [not yet invented vaccines] work. No need for further studies eh? We'll just take big pharm's word on their new products? Better yet, let's expidite them straight through to human trials! Really no reason to waste time on caution since "all the studies prove that they work."

Coca Cola works too. Does exactly what its manufacturer claims. It deliciously refreshes me when I'm thirsty. Independent and industry research are in total agreement regarding whether or not it works.

In all seriousness though, how can you recognize the scam in one or more industries and not be skeptical of the others? They are all for-profit, corporate driven industries. They all serve shareholders above all else. At what point does an intelligent, thinking human being become so convinced that they stop questioning and just accept data at face value? Placing their faith and trust in an industry going forward? Even smiting down those who dare question those convictions?

Vaccines may generally do a lot more good than harm for our species. But it's dangerous to stop questioning companies who value "safety" as nothing more than a profit impacter.

industry-supported studies and independent studies tended to draw very different conclusions
What? Holy shit. How can they get away with that?! Man, I sure am glad this is limited to the sugary drinks industry and not plastics or GMOs or vaccines.

I'm a fan of the tablet form factor, mostly because I am not a fan of large smart phones. But if it weren't for websites becoming increasingly more atrocious (not Blue's) and needing Gigs of RAM and High-end processors and 100Mbs connections just to view a simple article.. I wouldn't ever need to buy tablet upgrades.

Microsoft is the one spear heading all the touchy touchy things with their Surface computers. Apple is just following. Cause that's what they do now.

I really think they've got a winning combo planned. The Galaxy 8's emphasis on Virtual Reality coupled with actual explosions? Gold mine.

my friends and I all loved upgrading our ships and seeing them in action back in '93.
I absolutely loved custom building ships then directing them in space combat. It was probably by far my primary reason for playing Moo2 as long as I did.

Then one day I watched my best friend, who also loved Moo2 and played it as much as I did, play the game. I was flabbergasted to witness that he didn't customize ships or even watch the space combat, much less control the ships. He only built the preset ship options the game offered and had conflicts set to just show the final math result instantly. I was like, wtf, you're not even playing the game.

Happy Anniversary! I remember those days. Blue's Quake Page (something like that) and Mr. Wolf's Quake page were two of the earliest sites I regularly visited way back in the late 90s.

What good can come of this? If extremists' messages cannot be heard over online media, the logical next step is to bring it to as many physical door steps as they can until their message is heard.
