    EA Wants $10 to Unlock Online Multiplayer For Used Games

    Actually, this looks awesome for families who game together. One copy and $10 per extra player. Much cheaper than one copy per player.

    Fixing Power Lines Using A Helicopter

    Actually that's the safest way to insert the line spreaders without immediate shock death of painness. The larger power lines generate so much magnetic field (perpendicular to the electricity) that they attract each other, thus spreaders are needed to keep them apart. You can't just put a...

    Google Street View Image of the Day

    Followed it all the way back to where it first fell in. I assume they had to manually remove it. http://maps.google.com/maps?source=embed&layer=c&cbll=42.363421,13.362673&cbp=13,321.05,,0,-30.8&ie=UTF8&panoid=a0ThhcOez2z9OukpgtEE9g&ll=42.363507,13.362688&spn=0,359.998063&z=19

    Nvidia and ATI should be worried?

    Most companies make their games to work on the most popular console, then port it to the other platforms, then port it to the PC. Is it really a surprise that games made for a consistent, non-upgradable platform are simple on a more complex, upgradable platform?

    Microsoft Says Tax Would Move Jobs Offshore

    Microsoft's comments that they'll have to leave the country would be a little more believable if they didn't say it everytime Congress considers a law that they don't like.

    EA sued over Spore DRM (Not A "Bash" Thread)

    Sorry to burst your bubble on this one, but GfW (Games for Winblows) is just a logo. It means that the publisher paid Microshaft to use their GfW label. And worse yet, that first game that EA was going to release with this crap on it, Bioshock, was a GfW game, the first one if I remember...

    EA sued over Spore DRM (Not A "Bash" Thread)

    Again, preach it brother! It's hard enough to keep a PC safe without companies with which you have legitimate business attacking it. They offer what they say is a SecuRom removal tool on their site, but considering it's extremely hard to verify that it's gone, how much can you actually believe...

    Yeah, tell me about it. I'm tempted to buy the game even though I'd probably not play it much because I don't like the genre.

    EA sued over Spore DRM (Not A "Bash" Thread)

    <sarcasm>Yeah, because when Microsoft (or another company) bought FASA (or another company) they kept making Mechwarrior and Battletech RPG products (or other products).</sarcasm> Very few purchases of IP are engaged in so the company can continue support on an already discontinued game. If...

    EA sued over Spore DRM (Not A "Bash" Thread)

    Exactly, most chains that are now called Gamestop tried doing used PC games a while back. The problem was that without DRM, people would just burn a copy and keep the CD-Key, thus making the original worthless to the next guy, who would return it for a refund, and the store would be out the...

    EA sued over Spore DRM (Not A "Bash" Thread)

    Pffft... Look here, whippersnapper... I quit buying games from EA when they had crappy support for their BF1942 product. And then they started buying up all their competitors, which is quickly dwindling away my selection of games.

    EA sued over Spore DRM (Not A "Bash" Thread)

    Yeah, cause there's such a huge market for used PC games. That's a load of last-ditch PR bull and they know it. They never would have said that a month before release, but now that it sounds better than the truth (that they want you to buy another copy when you've used up your installs)...

    All Hail The Intellectual Property Czar

    Now, now... It's not wrong to think it (in the sense of good vs evil, though some may argue it is wrong in the sense of correctness). It's wrong to try to force others to think it... But equating W and the word "thought"... even using them in the same sentence is a bit of a stretch.

    All Hail The Intellectual Property Czar

    Ah, but this is an insight that many find hard to understand. The law enforcement official say possession is 9/10ths of the law. But truly, enforceability is 9/10ths of the law while possession is 9/100ths. If a law is passed but ignored by a large enough majority that the police force could...

    All Hail The Intellectual Property Czar

    I don't see why they didn't just make the fine for piracy infinity dollars. It'd be just as successful as the current policy of perpetually bankrupting the people that fund the RIAA and MPAA member companies' trust funds. This is the stupidest business plan that has ever graced this undeserving...

    ‘Fakeproof’ e-Passport is Cloned in Minutes

    The e-passports were never intended to be unbreakable, otherwise the old passports or passports with damaged chips would have been outlawed. These e-passports are little more than another futile attempt by world governments at making the tracking of internationals (whether foreign or domestic)...

    Mojave to Revive Vista's Image?

    Yeah, you did, but not with respect to these specific few who participated in this Mojave project. I realize that this fabled "vast majority of people" probably doesn't buy the latest and "greatest" as soon as it comes out (as opposed to the way most corporations wish). I was speaking...

    Mojave to Revive Vista's Image?

    I watched a few of those videos and what I'm afraid of is that some of those people that just saw a demo performed for them are going to get home and buy Vista, install it and find out that either it runs super slow on their old crudmuffin, or that it runs okay but they can't find anything they...

    I see what your saying there, I just don't believe that people "vote" with their wallet in a dominated industry. Now, don't get me wrong, to pay for those Apple machines you aren't exactly wasting your vote... your money perhaps (just kidding - just kidding)... but it's very hard to get any...

    Mojave to Revive Vista's Image?

    Close, but not perfect. 3 too many k's, 7 too many $'s, 1 too few C's, 1 too few S's, and I never use all caps. Still a monumental effort for a one liner. I give it an 8. You would have garnered a 10 if you had added a "because you're a f4nb0i n00b."

    Mojave to Revive Vista's Image?

    This may be true. Though I usually refrain from calling people names, I have no remorse for calling soulless corporations or soulless political parties names. And the soulless adjective part refers to all corporations and parties, not just some limited list of specific ones that someone deems as...

    Mojave to Revive Vista's Image?

    Yeah, but Macintrash fanboys are used to the idea of being spoon fed their system specs and "needs," so I'm not too surprised that they aren't complaining. and the average Mac user can't tell RAM from a CPU any more than an average PC user. Ding, ding, ding, ding, diiiiing. We haaaaave a...

    Mojave to Revive Vista's Image?

    I concede that downgrading a new system is an eyebrow raiser (at least, since SP1). Unless, of course, you really just totally hate the new interface. My bad. It's been a while since I researched buying a new, non-gaming desktop. But even for $400, it wouldn't be worth the upgrade for an...

    Mojave to Revive Vista's Image?

    There seems to be a lot of Vista apologetics saying that Vista runs great but only on "modern" hardware. Now I'm a gamer, so I upgrade about every 3 years maximum (assuming my overworked, overclocked rig lasts that long in one piece), so obviously I can see how that would apply to me. I'm...
