More often though, I buy my games new, so I wish EA had actually taken this even further. They could have just priced the games at $50 and asked for an extra $10 if you wanted the online, instead of charging $60 for everything bundled together. That way I wouldn't have to foot the bill for the development of something I didn't want anyway. I think gamers would have been overall happier, and EA could have still charged for the online component separately like they wanted to.

Now the only questions I get are about when web sites are updated and there's a layout change, or when Google updated gmail and it warned you that it was going to switch you to a new interface, and they want me to click OK because they're not sure if it'll break something
I didn't want to move to XP and get more of this. I stayed on 2000 as long as possible. Most apps I was using were open source, because I started moving away from commercial apps which were becoming increasingly annoying to deal with because of serial numbers, updates, adware, and around that time it was a fad to create Windows software that didn't use standard GUI elements, and I like using the keyboard to navigate.
Eventually the only thing I was using commercial software for was just the OS, so I moved to Linux. I wasn't too worried about games because I found those annoying even in Windows, having to download updates and patches just to get games to work properly, having to have specific driver versions and setting up my gamepad and using joy2key etc was annoying to me. Having to hunt down my save files when I reinstalled was a pain too, this was before they decided to put them in My Documents. I prefer consoles for gaming and I'm happy to have them just work when I pop in a disc.
Eventually I was in the market for a laptop so I bought Apple for the battery life, features, and durability. I liked OS X and used it for a while, but as OS updates would change the behavior of Finder or other things like that, it would annoy me. I also don't like the way certain apps need to launch X11 and can't use OS X's native GUI as well, and I was already happy with Linux so I just put that on.
I bet every real estate agent in the world would like one of these hooked up to a database of houses for sale, so they could instantly scan all the relevant information.
Is a smartphone with GPS not able to do any of this? How would Google Glass be anymore accurate than a GPS to be able to overlay the information properly as opposed to an "AR" app on a phone?
Maybe it could be useful for some things, especially games, but even in that situation, not having a HUD or anything distracting on the screen is seen as a benefit, so why would you want it IRL? Maybe it could be arranged into something more useful to you personally such as widgets on a desktop, but I can whip out my phone and check a few quick things already.
I just don't know if I want to always be seeing data. So it'd be easier and cheaper to whip out a smartphone instead of taking out my smartglasses and putting them on.
The DualShock 4 controller that's standard on the PS4 eliminates one feature that was seldom used on the PS3 —the analog face buttons..."
So how will PS2 games like Metal Gear Solid 2 be playable? Canceling a shot by easing off the fire button is crucial.
France believes its Internet users should be subject to the country's tighter laws against racist and hateful forms of expression.
Then France can filter their internet. Why does Twitter have to do anything? If France wants censorship, they should implement it.
