    Epic's Tim Sweeney Calls Store Exclusives "Procompetitive"

    since when did we ALL become developers? last i checked 99.9999% of us are consumers whom lose out with how EPIC does business. shouldn't we all prioritize our positions as consumers first and foremost, rather than praising how this and that company can get more profit for their top management?

    Flickr Photos Were Used to Train IBM Facial Recognition

    database holders will just trade your pics for IBM shares. US0.001 for 1 pic of a face. Extra charges marked as administrative charge ( so they do not need to increase valuation but still benefit. ) Then charge trading fees to split and sell the share. ( with a fee structure that suits them) ...

    Quadriga Cryptocurrency Wallets are Empty

    what i find pretty incredible is that you can legally setup a company , own shares and operate a company by using an alias. (which nobody can identify. I assume the Globe's info is from an insider source ) i wonder how many alias are used for other companies. Could a person be a hundred...

    The Biggest Problem with Triple-A, Open-World Games: "They're Boring as Hell"

    nay, we've just been stuck with at best mediocre AAA games for the past few years. And it doesn't look like it is going to change this year either. big gaming corps seriously needs to go private. At least they won't be led around on their leash by the public shareholders.

    Rotten Tomatoes Bans "Want to See" Score, User Comments before Films' Release

    Rottentomatoes has been shit for years. Soon it will be irredeemable. next in stop would be deep moderation of the audience review of 'selected' films. A low cost, high effectiveness PR countermeasure *selected films being activist films, like how Captain Marvel is all about ultra-feminism...

    Microsoft Workers Protest $480M Army Contract with Tech "Designed to Help People Kill"

    just subcontract the parts out to Microsoft through a front company. Maintain compartmentalization and sanitation cross work groups, then the workers won't even know what they are working on. too obvious to just contract out a big juicy contract with clear goals out to Microsoft out in the open.

    YouTube Stars Panic as Site Pulls Ads over "Inappropriate Comments"

    well, this makes much more sense: then Youtube needs to moderate first, rather than passing all the costs and risks to uploaders. Since Youtube are the ones earning more from ads, and they have the economy-of-scale to do it. ( they can always charge a nominal fee to uploaders for moderation)

    Taiwanese FPG "Devotion" Review Bombed by Chinese for Cursing Mainlanders to "Die"

    Valve should just make a official offshoot of Steam just for China. They can comply to whatever the gov want in that, and the good thing would be having Chinese players being geogated to their own region.

    Disney Removes Advertising from YouTube in Response to Child Exploitation Videos

    i recommend that Youtube hire a team to moderate channels where big corps ads shows up.

    Disney Removes Advertising from YouTube in Response to Child Exploitation Videos

    youtube aims to go fully corporate anyways. So much for vblogging and user content. ( of which the type of moderation the type of suits are looking at will pretty much eliminate) This is opening up a whole new sector to Chinese apps to take over.
