    UK Parliament Report Calls Facebook 'Digital Gangsters'

    I don't much care for Zuckerburg, but I don't see how he is obligated to appear before Parliament. He's not a British citizen and he doesn't live there. I'm sure that there are plenty of things they can hang on him, but failure to appear doesn't seem like it should be one of them.

    Bioware Supposedly Tried to Make a KOTOR Sequel

    Sorry, man, but EA really is run by a bunch of asshats. Their lockbox kurfluffle lately and how they've treated many of their past acquisitions has made that pretty clear, IMO. That doesn't mean that you are wrong about some of the efforts that have been pitched at them., though. But you're not...
