A DS and like 50 games is a good start. Thats roughly the size of a shoebox. An e-reader with a memory card full of things is another good one. I assume communication with home would be on the agenda as well.
I would assume the others on the ship would make for good conversation as well.
You may want to read that link. "A common urban legend states that..."
32 million in profit now, or maybe 1 billion (gross) later after long, costly litigation that may yield all of zero dollars.
The Wii actually has a pretty weak processor.
They tend to release at least one game a year.
I suspect they'd still exist, but just on consoles, which is sad.
You use a subscriber account to read the articles early, but use a different account to post shill. Just keep mashing F5 on the main page with your text ready in notepad. That way you avoid the karma hit and recognition as a shill poster. Just make a new one when it outlives its usefulness.

Well, the visibility of the things you publish is based on who you have in your circles, so it doesn't really matter who adds you. That's kind of the point of the circles. You don't need a separate "fan" page, for instance, in order to publish different things for public/private consumption.
He used a subscriber account to read the story early, type up a rather lengthy response, and then posted it using a brand-new account. You can tell this because his comment was posted in the same minute as the article, yet clearly took more than one minute to post. Astroturfers seem to use this method to post scathing commentary about company X (Google seems to be the most common), while avoiding the permanent karma hit (and recognition as an astroturfer) to their subscriber account.
It could also just be a troll posing as an astroturfer, and using this method to irritate the community. That distinction is largely irrelevant, however.
I don't recall the internet ever being controlled by its users.
I was skeptical, and looked up some data. It seems this is indeed correct.
