How much are you getting for a newish game at Gamestop?
This is one of those costs that probably won't be fully passed on to customers - where I live anyways...
New Game: $60
Used Game: $50 + $10 PSN Pass.
Why would you ever buy the used game? Gamestop has to decrease the amount they charge for the new game or they swallow the cost of the PSN Pass themselves to make it worth a customer buys the Used Game. Otherwise they lose an entire console's worth of used games.
I have a flashlight with the dynamo that charges when you shake it. So I just charge it when I... well it's personal - but my light is always charged.
Where have all the nerds gone?
I used to love
How can their money be stolen from their chequing (debit card) account when the data taken from PSN includes credit card info? I think I'm missing something...
In either case, I got in contact with Master Card and they said I'm free to request a new card if I wanted, but the data taken from PSN doesn't include the pin number (for those with chip cards) or the security number on the back. The customer service agent went on to say that fraudulent purchases are insured against anyway, so there's no worry there.
There really doesn't seem to be a legit reason to cancel your card.
Nevertheless, this whole thing sucks and Sony can chew my wang.
The Yanomamo tribe in the Amazon rain forest were known to distinguish numbers such as One, Two and Many.
Too lazy/not enough coffee to find a good reference:

Apple is much the same as Bose, really. And you're right, it's all about the experience.
Both Apple and Bose sell somewhat interesting products, but they're not overly innovative anymore (iPad is just a bigger iPhone, is it not?)
Both Bose and Apple use brand recognition and price point to imply quality and sell their wares nowadays.
Laptops, phones and pen/tablets are for content creation and getting things done. iPads are for content consumption: you can watch a movie, read a book use an app to get the weather... but you can't really do anything with them.
That said, I don't own one and I've only played with those owned by friends and family. They're entertaining and neat to flick through, but they're toys and not much more.
But if several people from a corporation were to donate their personal maximum to a political figure/party, no one would bat an eye. That's to say nothing of cash under the table or work provided in-kind
Exactly. So what's with the 'poo poo' attitude?
There are groundwater wells in my province that have been shut down because of naturally elevated arsenic levels. Meanwhile the concentration of arsenic is probably below the level needed to cause noticeable effects.
So when we get anthropogenic plutonium (is there any other kind?) in groundwater, it is a serious motherfucking problem. Don't be a douche... this land has been salted for a long time to come and your blase attitude is annoying.
I like how any noun can be 'book'ed if there is a web site and some social structure to it. I should assume that wrought iron fence enthusiasts would start a GateBook.com
And then if there was an insidious scandal between Gatebook.com and PicketFencebook.com the scandal would be termed Gatebook Gate.
Only last year, during the Vancouver Olympics, I saw the most disturbing footage ever.
Nodar Kumaritashvili was killed in a luge run when his sled flew out of a corner and he crashed into a steel support girder. The reverberant *thwangggggggg* followed by no movement and otherwise complete silence is the stuff of nightmares.
And people freak out about a nipple.
