The stupid part is it's not even an effective crossguard. There's a metal section close to the hilt so you can easily cut the crossguard off. Congrats on making a (most likely) primary antagonist look like an idiot. Unless they intented Luke Skywalker to show a juvenille Sith how moronic his added bling is in an actual fight...

By not having Harper involved. This doesn't conflict with the oil sands so the Evil Harper Government doesn't care. Of course you could say someone's head should be rolling for allowing a government funded vaccine to be sold off to a US corp for a pittance (which is what the article is about).

I actually applaude Intel's decision because of articles like that. As someone that grew up playing Atari, NES, Genisis and everything that came after, the contempt most gaming sites show for people that actually buy and play games is abhorent. It's about as tone deaf as those stupid "don't pirate movie" ads they play in movie theatres before the movie (that you paid to see) starts.

Yes, I definitely would.

I use Steam, Humble Bundle and GOG for games.

I use for music

If I can find a DRM free source for Movies and Television, I'd never need to "acquire" anything again. GOG's prices are a little high ($6 would be the most I'd pay for most movies) but provided they do sales where they slash prices 50% or more, I'd buy movies through them.

You don't feel it's false advertising to say something is free when it's not? If people feel genuinely tricked by these revenue methods than it's worth addressing. It's akin to telemarketers calling and saying you won a free trip to the Bahamas; all you need to do is provide your credit card number and a $200 deposit.

She questioned the amount, the logic behind the amount and why the plaintiff's lawyers didn't feel a jury would find the emails a convincing argument for collusion. Not sure how you didn't find the summary accurate. I know it's a rarity on slashdot but this one is pretty spot on.

That does not compute.
