I saw the site yesterday and a number of posters exposed also included bits about how their parents shared the same views.

Well this is the third platform Steam has come out for. First Windows, then Mac OS, now Linux.
100% agree. Especially with the grandparent. I think whats happened is MS has never really had to justify "why?" before.
They are used to being the default choice and now that they are not. Also they do not have the broadest base of apps to draw people in thus sales have gone nowhere.
That was my reaction as well. This is the logo used at the store since it opened last year. Now its just the official logo and will show up more and more as they update their various products.
I wonder how much bandwidth NBC used. Its gated wall for requiring satellite and cable TV services probably kept it down.
Working As Intended.
I grew up in a small town 30 min away from the SF Bay Area. UPS delivered but that was it. No Fedex, DLH, etc. While the town did have a post office there was no door service just a PO Box.
Thanks for the link.
You have seen pictures of RMS right? I doubt he even knows what a razor is let alone the tyranny of living under P&G iron rule.
Thats how you know he is an engineer.
Sonds like the firmware got corrupted. My wife took her 3GS (1 year old to the day) in to the apple store last night. A tech looked at it, found it reported ~8 hours of battery life but 700 days of standby time. Obviously this was not right, found the firmware was corrupted and asked if she would permit a wipe and restore. Apparently this caused some errors in the back and a few min later he came back with a new phone for her.
As it was the last day of the included warranty it only cost us a few minutes of our time. Note that as it was the firmware that was the problem she could not do a full restore from her computer. Just reinstalled apps, some restored data some did not. And had to re-setup to her liking.
Some trophy enabled games failed to init properly (Heavy Rain is one such game) and would quit. While others would load and play fine. I played Fallout 3 sunday evening but the catch was it zero'd out my local trophy data, as if I had never played the game. Not sure what would have happened if I earned one during my playtime that night. If anyone is curious now that everything working again I restored my trophies by launching the game (init to 0%) then quit and re-synced my trophy data with the PSN servers. This restored all the missing data.
Also there were reports of some fat PS3's that were not effected by the bug at all. Just like the new slim models.
