Just low of Blizz to be pimping out two new maps. As if they need more money. These should have been free to the pubic. Blizz just keeps sinking lower and lower.

Yeah, what people used to do for free now comes with the expectation and sense of entitlement that you should be paid for every little thing.
"Every little thing?"
I spent over 2000 hours of my life on a WC3 map. It had tens of thousands of players, a thousand active forum members, and many players enjoying literally hundreds of hours of gameplay over a span of several years before it finally became obsolete.

Would I ever invest my time in something like that again for free? No way. There is an expectation for content now, even user-created content, that makes it prohibitively expensive to produce. We need market places like this to encourage user creators to keep at it, especially if we want higher quality stuff that's easy to acquire in games.

How many people are struggling with burning down their kitckens? Not that hard to use an appliance safely. Even carelessly, Iíve just burned myself. Not the kitchen.

Plus, I want my appliances to last years, decades if possible. IOT devices will never last that long. This IOT BS is just trying to get people used to frequent upgrades on things taht shouldnít need it.

The shadow analogy made sense. A 3D object creates a 2D shadow. An observer only capable of processing 2D experiences could see that shadow even though they couldnít see the 3D object itself. So they demonstrated what they believe a 4th dimensional objectís 3D shadow would be. And by observing that, weíre indirectly aware of the 4D object. Or at least, we would know what to look for to correlate to 4D objects.

The model 3 is supposed to be 36,200 - 44,000. Assuming they can shave the price down to 30k even a pickup truck is reasonable at that price.

The real question becomes how long does the savings take to pay off? A gas engine pickup new can be half that price, 15k new, so how long does it take to start saving?

Do you ever start saving? Iíve never tried to the math on a Tesla, but I did buy a new Camry last year. And as I was doing the math of the hyrbid vs gas, the break-even was after 9 years of owership. And that was me assuming the hybrid has identical long term maintenance cnsiderations (which i donít think is actually true).

Until gas prices skyrocket, hybids and electrics are not more practical. Theyíre cool. Theyíre advancing technology. But they are not cost effective to an owner.

I'm suggesting there is in experiences, shared culture, and taste.
Do you think you could create a marketing plan that would appeal to urban youths without offending them as well as, y'know, someone with that background?
So being black qualifies some one to make a marketing plan aimed at urban youths? Because all black people started out there? Weíre talking about a board member here, the whitest people on Earth regardless of actual skin color. I wonít deny that, on the surface, hiring a black person would likely resonate better with some audience members. But I do hope they make a deeper effort than that to truly find someone that helps diversity. Because seeking some rich dude/tte that is conveniently black isnít trying very hard. Thatís just appeasing idiots with a token role.

So Facebook openly and officially commits to being racist. Couldnít they just happen to appoint a black board member and say he/she was the best fit for the job? Canít we at least maintain the illusion that all races should have equal potential and opportunity? Any black person who accepts that token position now is doing a disservice to promoting real equality.

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.

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.

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.
