    Steam introduces feature to combat Borderlands review bombings, Gearbox CEO responds to situation

    I was reading a news article about this and they had included the tweet from Randy where he defends his decision. I clicked on it after getting curious about what was being said.... normally I don't go near Twitter or Facebook for anything. I must say, after reading just a couple of his...

    Steam introduces feature to combat Borderlands review bombings, Gearbox CEO responds to situation

    The argument about Steam having a toxic community is circular though. Steam's community wouldn't be toxic at all if Gearbox hadn't decided on an EGS exclusive deal (even if it is just for the first 6 months). So I find it laughable that the CEO of Gearbox is using a situation he created to...

    Lazareth Teases a Transforming Hoverbike

    Until humans can demonstrate they can drive properly and not smash up stuff and kill themselves and each other while on the ground, I have no faith that any good will come out of allowing them to tackle yet another axis of travel. Even with the most advanced AI to aid/guide/control things...

    Lazareth Teases a Transforming Hoverbike

    Now they need to test the hover function with a regular sized North American guy as the rider and not some 100 lb. featherweight woman. The other question I have in my mind is "Why?" I mean, you can drive it down the road, sure. But can you hover down the road? Probably not... pretty sure...

    VentureBeat Previews Amazon's MMO

    Since this is Amazon, my mind wandered and then all I could think of was: "Alexa, chop that tree!" "Alexa, start a fire!" "Alexa, fight that rival guild member!"

    So, Zuck is now in Phase 2 of his plan to take over the world... Launching a space laser. Phase 3 is where he builds a secret base inside an island volcano someplace.

    Robots Command Humans to Cleanup Spills in Grocery Stores

    First, it's commanding humans to clean spilled spaghetti sauce in isle 3, next they'll be commanding them to clean up the blood spillage at the robot controlled Soylent Green slaughterhouse. It's only a matter of time.

    Cars in China Transmit Location Data to the Government

    I'm just guessing but I think it may have to do with that social credit score system they just put into use... after all, some of the infractions that can lower your score are speeding and illegal parking and whatnot.

    The Chinese Social Credit Score System Has Already Been Implemented

    We are pleased to inform you we are raising your social credit score due to outstanding donations! However, we are unfortunately lowering your score dramatically because it was found that those hearts and kidneys were not your own.

    Know Your Audience!

    Maybe he was just talking out his ass again... after all, he IS a lawyer. But ya, gives a whole new definition to "You're holding it wrong" if you can get it stuck up your ass when you "fall in the shower <*wink* *wink*>".

    NASA Is Considering the Sale of Advertising Rights on Spacecraft to Fund Missions

    Despite Jeff Bezos owning his own space company, I think it would be ironic to see Amazon logos plastered all over the side of NASA rockets.

    Volvo Shares Their Vision of Autonomous Taxis with the 360c Concept Reveal

    Not sure who takes taxi trips long enough to be able to sleep. I mean, around here, just getting to the airport 5 mins away is a $30+ taxi trip (not including tip). I would hate to see what a trip would cost when it is long enough for one to fall asleep for any length of time. Sure, it's...

    Video Released of Uber Self-Driving Car Accident

    Given the amount of corporate ass-hattery and legal line toeing/crossing that Uber has shown thus far, I wouldn't put it past them to have actually done just that.

    U.S. Marshals Raid Hoverboard Booth At CES

    I hate to break the news to Mr. Doerksen, but if I were in the market for one of these ridiculous things, after seeing the price he charges for his, I would certainly take my chances with the patent-infringing, possibly flammable Chinese model over paying 3X the price for his.

    Gamer Sent To Prison For School Swattings

    Probably because of that one phrase "time is of the essence." When it's a REAL hostage taking/murder/etc. happening, you don't necessarily have time to have a cop swing by and look at the target house and make a determination if a report is fake or not. That would be my guess.

    Star Citizen Selling A $900 Ship

    Apple Customers Report Crashing After iOS 9 Update

    But on the other side of the coin, there's a butt-ton of 5-star reviews that are not from legitimate users of the app and are just there to praise Apple and hate on Android.

    eBay Seller Who Sued Customers For Bad Feedback Has To Pay Legal Fees

    This is just a guess because none of the articles I read on this specifically spells out the specifics behind the legal fees (other than two lawyers were representing the defendant pro bono), but since the ebay seller's case resided almost solely on the fact that the buyer wasn't likely to want...

    Movie Studio Wants To Interrogate Suspected Pirates

    For me, I pictured Neo's interrogation scene in The Matrix (except it would stop just before the whole sealing the person's mouth shut thing). "How about... I give you the finger... and you give me my phone call."
