Dear Asshat,

We make more money each second than you'll make in your entire life. Your arrogant attitude makes us laugh. We have MBAs who have forgotten more about development than you think you know, and about 8 orders of magnitude more than you actually know.

We're sorry you think our predicament is so bad, but we do enjoy floating our yacht on ocean sized volumes of cash, our yachts are big enough the waves aren't an issue, perhaps if you pulled your head out of your ass for a second you would realize this and you would realize that while you try to act like some one cares what you think, you are nothing, hence your AC post. Oh? You don't love us ... I'm sure will lose sleep at night over that.

        A company which actually turns a profit

I'd bet a months pay you don't make $20/hour, let alone 200. Your ignorance wreaks that of a 15 year old without a clue how the real world operates and certainly indicates that you have absolutely no idea what happens in a company the scale of Microsoft. You seem to think %0.00001 of your customers having an issue with regressions is the end of the world.

Seriously, get a clue.

It doesn't show them 'by default'. The opening page is a list of games for your platform, if you browse to a different category or search for a game, you're taking deliberate action to do so. Make sure you search for Mac games if you want to buy games for a Mac, and make sure its badged for Mac.

Mac Steam doesn't start you in the Windows or Linux games page.

I've seen this happen when a Mac version of the game is coming, but hasn't actually been released. In my case the game showed up on Mac a month or two later.

When I bought it, I was fine with buying only a Windows version and thought the store was wrong when it showed the mac badge.

For reference: Nothing stops you from buying windows only games on mac.

There will be nothing to "retain" nor "verify", if a cop wraps a piece of chewing gum around camera's lens and microphone hole for a few minutes...

Other than the video showing the cop putting chewing gum on the lens ... and the video of the cop removing chewing come from the lens ...

There will just be a string of "unexplained malfunctions" nationwide, which the manufacturers will be at a loss to explain...

Except for the video mentioned above explaining what happened clearly ...

It may be possible to get it to work, yes, but it is going to be a lot harder, than the Senator realizes...

There are multiple OSS libraries that already are capable of detecting most of the ways the camera could be obscured, especially as something as trivial as the input going dark which you could do very simply, and basic motion detection would also catch it ... gee, the camera gyros show the camera is moving but the video isn't changing or is changing across all pixels fairly equally ... because its extremely blurred/obscured.

Or Prosecuting Attorney: Officer, why do we have a video show you putting gum over the lense of your camera 5 minutes before this shooting occurred and taking it off 10 minutes after? Whats that? You're going to be found guilty of the crime you're charged with? Yes, we understand that, guess you shouldn't have obscured the camera eh?

Now, I don't own a GoPro, but last I heard, they were nearly indestructible inside their shatterproof sealed case.

The only thing the case does is keep water and dirt out. A 5 foot drop will easily destroy a GoPro, and I know this as I have a friend with multiple videos of his GoPro being killed as it falls to the ground for various reasons in the case.

They are pretty shitty cameras, their only advantage is that they are light and have ready made accessories, beyond that, if you really want to be rough, GoPro isn't the choice to make.

... because hadoop is a database ... except that its not, in any way ...

And everything makes more sense to be in a nosql key-value store than something with structure and integrity.

With a 3 digit id I would have expected a better response than that from your age alone ... mind blowing.

... have you watched the full video ... because it confirms exactly what the police said, and has people on the video talking about how he ran at the cop with a knife even though its not visible in the video itself.

Not sure at all how you got that it was all lies. Pretty much EVERYONE else recognizes that it was suicide by cop.

You've watched an edited version that removes the beginning where the camera walks by the guy holding the knife. The camera man originally passed within a few feet of the victim from the same direction that cop vehicle came in from. You're also not seeing the ending where the witnesses are discussing the fact that he ran at the cop with a knife that THEY saw which you can't see on a shitty phone video.

You're basically watching the Julian Assange edit of the video thats designed to mislead you into thinking collateral murder.

There was no protest or riot because the full version of the video took away every excuse to protest. The guy had mental issues, had just robbed a store and was standing on the curb daring anyone to fuck with him and to try and get the two sodas he took from the store.

Considering that the only testimony that he had his hands up is from people that have already been caught telling multiple about what happened we can safely assume that he wasn't surrendering and he wasn't holding his hands up just like the autopsy showed he wasn't running away like they all said.

Well, they'll solve the rioting,

No, it won't. The shooting in Ferguson was used as an excuse to riot.

Look at the story, every 'witness' says he was shot in the back running away ... until the autopsy shows that NONE of the wounds were in his back. From the start every witness account was bullshit. The kid had JUST robbed a store, that there is video of. He's seen being aggressive in the video. This is fact. Everyone that knew what actually happened lied and started causing trouble.

Not since Watts has any riot in america been legitimate. Everyone has been an excuse for people to burn THIER OWN NEIGHBORHOOD DOWN ... W.T.F.

If you look at Ferguson, the actual people doing the 'rioting' have nothing to do with the incident, hell more than a few of them fucking flew in from the East or West coast. You know its bullshit the instant Al Sharpton gets involved. He's nothing but a loud mouth blowhard who does his very best to promote hatred and encourage racism.

Cameras won't stop this problem, they'll just remove this particular venus and instead it'll be more Treyvon Martin style incidents instead of cops.

I'm all for putting cameras on cops, but pretending this problem is a problem caused by the cops is ignorance at best. This is a cultural issue where the people 'rioting' live in and promote a culture of racism and use that as an excuse to be violent. The racism isn't just black vs white either, whites are a popular and easy target but any group thats different is used to facilitate this crap.

If you want to solve these 'riots' stop pretending the rioters are legitimate when they clearly aren't. Again, against the police in this case have been lying from the start acting like the kid was a saint, and every time a new fact emerges it becomes more and more clear that he was nothing more than a hood rat.
