Comment Youtuber covered this before slashdot :O (Score 2) 187

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htTs9CC52cA She brings up some pretty interesting points. I was thinking about getting one as well but I'm definitely not anymore, not after this. I've also seen a few sites defending Nintendo because it "protects against piracy". When I asked the girl who covered this on her youtube channel she said she thinks it's not about piracy at all, but that Nintendo is using Piracy as an excuse to radically control its users and profit off of them. Interesting points, even if a bit "extreme".

Submission + - Epson Closes American Tech Support; Moves to Asia

Rukawa Kaede writes: "According to this report from DailyTech, Epson is shutting down its North American call centers and outsourcing all support to some third party in the Philippines. I can understand the business decision behind this, as everyone is out to save a buck or two, but I still feel rather uneasy when my phone calls get routed to some developing country. If given the option, I might even be willing to pay a few dollars more for my hardware if tech support were to stay on a little bit more familiar ground. Score one for globalization, I guess."

I just got my first cell phone two weeks ago, and I'm 20. I did fine without one all that time and even now I don't use it all that often. I really only got one because I won't have a landline phone in my apartment (though, I will admit, it is nice to have just in case and has proved handy a few times). Even so I mostly use it as a watch :P
