    The Original Xbox’s Oversized “Duke” Controller Returns This March

    I disagree that the Duke was in any way ridiculous, aside from the "lol hueg" meme that still surrounds it. I'll be buying this.

    Is Technology About to Decimate White-Collar Work?

    It only makes sense if you have no idea how the money distributed as UBI is to be generated by the reduced workforce. (Hint: it doesn't, therefore it can't.)

    AT&T, Comcast Say GOP Tax Bill Will Mean $1,000 Bonuses for Employees

    This is literally not how taxes work. Debt is the result of a spending problem, not the result of a taxation problem. The national debt skyrocketed under the tax rates you are defending. If they worked, why did the debt massively increase? Stop being wrong.

    The FCC Has Repealed Net Neutrality

    No, it did not exist as a regulation with the force of law. The concept of net neutrality is quite dissimilar from the regulation that was just removed.

    The FCC Has Repealed Net Neutrality

    This wasn't happening in 2015 before Title II extended to ISPs, it won't happen now. The Internet got more censorious, and therefore worse, after NN was enacted. Also, legally speaking, NN is something that Congress needs to pass, not something that the FCC should unilaterally regulate.

    These days, that is probably a sign of doing something correct.

    Net Neutrality Protests Move Online, Yet Big Tech Is Quiet

    Net Neutrality has always been a solution in search of a problem. If anything, the Internet is more censorious and worse off than it was before NN was enacted. Get rid of it.

    Hellblade Proves There’s “A Space Between Indie and AAA Games”

    People didn't know there was a gap between AAA and mobile/budget? Come on. Not every game is an AAA game, and not every non-AAA game is some bargain bin piece of garbage. NieR: Automata is a fantastic example of what a non-AAA title can be.

    Switch, Super NES Classic Lead to 19% Growth in U.S. Spending on Consoles

    No. You also can't get the same amount of games at the same price as the SNES Classic.

    Bethesda: Fan Criticisms Won’t Define What We Do

    And, in general, they are correct to think this. Most fan complaints do not make sense and can be safely disregarded. In Bethesda's case, however, there's a distinct danger in watering down and simplifying series for greater mass consumption. I don't think anyone believes Fallout 4 was better...

    Nintendo Tries to Win E3 with a Metroid Prime 4 Logo

    The Switch is selling out like hotcakes. I believe I read that it's Nintendo's fastest selling console ever, the it-prints-money Wii included. You've also forgotten about the juggernaut install base of the 3DS. So, to quote you: your post, lol, gotta be a joke.

    Nintendo Tries to Win E3 with a Metroid Prime 4 Logo

    "Tries to"? They did win E3. Sony showed vaporware, Microsoft showed $500 hardware, Nintendo showed stuff for consoles people already own.

    Mark Zuckerberg Calls for Universal Basic Income in Harvard Commencement Speech

    People who oppose UBI have a clearer understanding of it than its proponents. When UBI proponents can explain in clear economic terms where the money comes from and how this system would sustain itself with reduced economic activity caused by a large, permanently unemployed class, then we'll talk.

    Mark Zuckerberg Calls for Universal Basic Income in Harvard Commencement Speech

    We can't predict the future, true. But what we can do is stop suppressing and interfering with the people who make the future. Look at the geopolitical and economic halo effect of fracking, an activity that the same people who advocate for a UBI spent years attempting to strangle. The entire...

    Mark Zuckerberg Calls for Universal Basic Income in Harvard Commencement Speech

    Polite, serious answer: If you tax someone at a rate beyond their ability to generate new revenue to replace the money paid in tax, you lose the source of tax money. Answer you deserve: try running numbers instead of randomly spouting them.

    Mark Zuckerberg Calls for Universal Basic Income in Harvard Commencement Speech

    Then UBI doesn't fix anything, and it is basically the same welfare system we have now. The premise behind UBI is that automation will eliminate lower end jobs, and that the higher levels of underemployment and unemployment we have seen in the last 8 years are normal, expected, and should be...

    Mark Zuckerberg Calls for Universal Basic Income in Harvard Commencement Speech

    No, it's not. UBI will never be a thing. It's entirely based on false premises, such as "the rates of unemployment, underemployment, and workforce participation under Obama are normal and expected", and "the money that funds UBI will just magically appear despite the fact we are paying people to...

    Musk is the hollow, existing-product-repackaging showman that the Internet accused Steve Jobs of being. That said, his work with SpaceX is fantastic. Zuckerberg had a great idea at the right time and has done nothing of note since. Every time he opens his mouth, he proves that even the...

    Far Cry 5 : Official Announce Trailer

    There's a trailer with the game's director describing Montana in almost alien terms. So I'm sure this won't in any way degenerate into mishandled stereotyping and clumsy backhanding of the personality type that would want to live in Montana.
