Yes but your OS needs to be 64 bit and until Windows 7 became dominant, 32 bit was still the biggest seller by far. If I recall until last year 80% of Windows OS installs were 32bit. Until last year many laptops still came with 32 bit Windows 7 which as far as I'm concerned was dumb.

And yes, if people would pay $19.99 for some DLC that gives your character new hats, I'm pretty sure they'd pay for dedicated servers.

That's a very big assumption but ok...

The reason they are not included is because Sony is so scared that there might be some kid in Slovenia playing a pirated version of their game

They have every right to protect what is theirs and in the process provide generally a better offering for most players. Most users don't care for dedicated servers anyway. At the end of the day you can choose to not buy Sony games. If you already don't buy Sony games then I don't know why you are up in arms.

For me the word "BEHEADING" was strong enough for me to understand how horrible the act was. I watched the video and I wasn't any more struck than when I read the headline.

And what difference does it actually make? The answer is NONE. Me having actually seen the video did nothing to improve the situation in that country. My son, my daughter, my wife, my neighbors. We can all see the video and it will be the topic of the hour and then none.

There is far more harm than good that can be done by allowing videos like this to be displayed. Harm to the family, harm to kids that get their hands on it...

Yeah, that makes tones of sense. Oh look, I want to play but none of my friends are online. "I WISH I COULD PLAY WITH OTHER PEOPLE ONLINE WITHOUT HAVING TO LOOK LIKE A CREEP ON MIRC OR OTHER PUBLIC FORUMS LOOKING FOR A FRIEND TO PLAY WITH".

You should not be allowed to own a car because it's too much evolution for you.

  1% down time doesn't justify dropping a perfectly good working server model.

I agree with your statement that censorship is wrong BUT I must inject that allowing them to show the horrible things they do does nothing to further any causes other than their own. Did I see the video? Yes I did. Did I need to see it to understand how horrible things are there? No.

In the current state of internet I agree with censorship but as the internets anonymous nature dissolves and accountability becomes possible again, I will agree far more with your statement.

I don't think you can anticipate how far 3D printing can go. Although 3D printing has existed for a long time it is just starting to be a field of interest. As more research is poured into it will become better and more affordable.

The progress will be in the ability to make concrete consistently reliable versus the hit and miss you get from hiring one company versus another.

As for faster you also can't tell. It may be tones faster 10 years from now.

Phones today are as important as your wallet. Losing it can result in identity theft. It's not a new issue, it's just that it's taken a new form.

As tverbeek stated, putting a password on the phone is the most logical thing to do and probably the only thing one can do.

Sharing passwords is the result of people being miss informed or not understanding what can happen. There's also a laziness component to it. At home it's one thing but at work I explain to users that sharing their password is like trusting the other users with their employment. If one employee wants to sabotage them, they can easily do it. I've seen a employee get fired over something similar.

Progress happens when you take something that has potential but isn't yet viable and make it viable.

If you could 3D print a foundation and increase the quality and durability of it then it makes sense since I know for a fact that concrete is a complicated process that has potential for major failure if not done properly.

Science is to computer science as hydrodynamics is to plumbing.
