Overpriced - yep. Censored - yep, like every other ISP. Incompetent - not as an ISP. Great uptime, decent enough speed, plus you get to use their wifi hotspots which are located in pretty much every street. If you don't mind paying they are one of the best ISPs around.

Maybe we just don't need it? Our closest apps to AI are Siri and whatever the Android voice app is. All they do is retrieve information. Same as a google search. Nearly everyone under 30 (and quite a few over that) grew up with computers and most know how to use them. True turing AI at this point would only really benefit people who don't know how to find information themselves.


Submission + - Ubisoft Games Won't Work Next Week ( 2

hypnosec writes: Several of Ubisoft's biggest titles won't be playable as of next week thanks to a server move by the publisher and the restrictive DRM that was used in their development. This isn't just multiplayer either. Because Ubisoft thought it would be a smart plan to use always on DRM for even the single player portion of games like Assassin's Creed, even the single player portion of that title won't be playable during the server move. Some of the other games affected by this move will be Tom Clancy's HAWX 2, Might & Magic: Heroes 6 and The Settlers 7. The Mac games that will be broken during this period are Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell Conviction and The Settlers. This move was announced this week as part of a community letter, with Ubisoft describing how the data servers for many of the publisher's online services would be migrated from third party facilities to a new location starting on the 7th February. The publisher didn't reveal how long the transfer would take.

You are in the hall of the mountain king.
