Comment: John Riccitiello is Darth Plagueis (Score 1) 254 254

Palpatine said...

This isn't a story EA would tell you.... It's a Sith legend.

"Darth Riccitiello was a Dark Lord of the Sith so powerful and so wise, he could use EA to influence the midi-chlorians to make...games. He had such a knowledge of the Dark Side, he could even keep the game studios he cared about...from dying.

He became so powerful, the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power...which, eventually of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice (who works for Disney) everything he knew. Then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Riccitiello never saw it coming.

Ironic."

Have you thought that using this in combination of a mouse would give you more liberty during a presentation or general computer usage? I wouldnt use this alone without a mouse, but i think it works better than the kinect does and it will be integrated on laptops. That is big.

Comment: and this is news for nerds how? (Score 1) 422 422

I live in Texas, and while tragic and all that, why is this news in slashdot? Why is it news for nerds? Was a computer security issue that caused the explosion? If I want world news i go to CNN or huffington Post, when I come to slashdot is to read news for nerds, stuff that matters.

I think Mobama should send them a couple of pissed off Marines there for a little R&R (tequila, women and fire), or just hire a merc wing from the US DOD and do a cleanup... Mexico shouldnt be that difficult to overtake... a couple of M1A1 HA Abrams Main Battle Tank should do the trick... Mexico Urban layout is like afghanistan ultra light...

You are a dumb ass. Hurricanes (along with Tornados) are the only atmospheric events that are categorized. Tropical Storms are not categorized. Further more according to NOAA Irene is still a Category 1 hurricane. Per NOAA www.noaa.gov:

"...Irene Re-Emerges Over The Atlantic Ocean...Water Levels Rising In The Virginia Tidewater Region... Published: Sat, 27 Aug 2011 18:52:53 EDT
At 7:00 p.m. EDT, the center of Hurricane Irene was located near latitude 36.5 north, longitude 75.8 west, or 35 miles southeast of Norfolk, V.A. Irene is moving toward the north-northeast near 16 mph and this motion accompanied by a gradual increase in forward speed is expected during the next day or so. On the current forecast track, the center of Irene will move near or over the Mid-Atlantic coast tonight and move over southern New England on Sunday. Irene is forecast to move into eastern Canada Sunday night. Maximum sustained winds remain near 80 mph with higher gusts. Irene is forecast to remain a hurricane as it moves near over the Mid-Atlantic coast and as it approaches New England. "
