The mainstream media is distracting you from what's really going on is Russia.

Anyhow, before condemning their new laws, have a look that what the FCC says.

Obscene Broadcasts Are Prohibited at All Times

Obscene material is not protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution and cannot be broadcast at any time. The Supreme Court has established that, to be obscene, material must meet a three-pronged test:

  • An average person, applying contemporary community standards, must find that the material, as a whole, appeals to the prurient interest;
  • The material must depict or describe, in a patently offensive way, sexual conduct specifically defined by applicable law; and
  • The material, taken as a whole, must lack serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value.

There are varying degrees of stability and I felt that after 7 years of development, official inclusion into the Linux kernel, Facebook deployment and the default fs on OpenSUSE that it's good enough for my laptop, workstation and a few other systems. Having that said, I've not migrated by backup drives yet, they're still on XFS. It may be a while until I migrate those.

I was going to mod you up but it seems pointless. When it comes to economics, the crowd here is so out of touch that anyone who brings up a reasonable argument gets burried. The illusion that we can get stuff for free has bamboozled the vast majority of people but the rude awakening is near and anyone who's paying attention knows it. You'll need hard assets to ride the next imminent downturn.

Is "emerging space" a synonym for "didn't go anywhere?" As it stands, there is the Ouya, which is dying, a bunch of android consoles dying on the vine, and a Playstation Vita TV, which hasn't caught on enough in Japan to bother shipping elsewhere. As it stands, the only microconsole-like object that is doing OK is Chromecast, and that has nothing to do with games.

Instead of using force to break things up, I would remove the laws that give large corporations an advantage and special privileges over smaller companies. The problem however is that most of these laws are sponsored by the large corporations and the corruption is rampant. We can either take our government back, in a possibly painful and bloody revolution or reduce the size of government to make it a less effective weapon for large corporations.
