"However, you won't be too happy when you get a new machine that doesn't come with anything other than 9."
That will not happen for a long time. I can buy lots of brand new business class machines with windows 7 on it right now and Dell will not stop doing it as long as 90% of all the corporations are demanding it.

Windows 7 will be available on a new machine sold by competent PC makers for a few more years at least.

Absolutely. I was going to buy Destiny but waited for the initial reviews. and there are a LOT of people pissed off because it's unplayable if you don't have a super fast internet connection.

So that means that playing in the evening when everyone is streaming Netflix and Hulu you cant freaking play the $70 video game because Bungie is too stupid to realize that not everyone has an OC3 to their house.

So I'm passing on it the same way I passed on titanfall. and it sounds like it's turning into a titanfall "meh" overall review as most of the game is so repetitive that it's not funny.

But then you also have crap games like BattleField 4 that is still so full of bugs that it's unplayable and they don't plan on fixing them. Overall the video game industry is dying, I used to spend at least $120 a month on games, I now haven't bought a new game in 2 months and I have stopped buying 0 day games completely after the bullshit that was Battlefield 4 Alpha-test edition.

Lastly I am done with freaking Online multiplayer. it's full of little 13 year old shitheads that only know how to be bouncing N00b-T00b's.

Back when worked at Time Warner, we never charged for a truck roll that I'm aware of. Not unless you did something stupid like cut the main line to the house with a garden tool, or you request an additional outlet to be installed in the wall.

While I don' know, I'm pretty sure they're no fee in swapping the box out in person if the TSR agent states it's ok to do based on a technical issue. But for a truck to drive a box and install it to your home, yes, I can understand the delivery and setup charge. Now if a squirrel chewed through an overhead coax line, well that's their problem, not the subscriber's.

Since when does the Executive and Legislative branch give a damn about your constitutional rights?! Half of SCOTUS plays with it like jujitsu; bending and contorting its meaning to service some living-breating "modern times meaning" BS.

1rst amendment? You wacko! Don't have such thoughts.

Sure, agreed. But there is a major difference. Once is screwing you over on how you would like to use the connection you paid for. The other does it for political reasons, and at the behest of their corporate masters.

Democracy?? Please, we have a plutocracy now. One poison is worst than the other.

Into the frying pan, into the fire. You really want the Internet to be a "utility". Oh, that sounds all nice until Big Government starts regulating all sorts of shit. The first to go will be anonymous activity under the guise of "homeland security". In reality, to stifle political free speech and may *you* fear pissing off the opposition.

Be damn careful what you wish for. Be DAMN CAREFUL!!!!

I'm sure they'll come up with some BS term. Something like "Active services suspension" Yeah, that's it!

"Sir, we've placed a hold on your active account. You're still a valuable customer, and will be billed as such, but your connection has been disconnected" We will re-enable the connection when you agree and signed a form stating you will stop using Tor. Good day"

Brilliant. I make for such an evil villain!

I'm no fan of Apple but this is a storm in a molehill.

Agreed, but then again you probably don't fall in two the two groups that either find this offensive, or unfair.

1. The progressive liberals types that typically purchase Apple products over Android.
2. The entire music industry.

Both groups are very vocal, hence why it's "news". Now I could give a flying fuck about #1, in fact, they can suffer while I snort my morning coffee in laughter :). But I really feel for #2. This blatant favoritism on display when the music industry is ostensibly forced into the DLC paradigm. FYI I'm not a fan or a foe of U2.

Then dont be a idiot and have "auto download" turned on? This album did not magically appear on any of the 6 apple devices I own. I have to go and download it.

100% of the people complaining are the ones that have no clue how to use technology.

I on the other hand like U2 and then had to take some steps to rip the DRM out and convert to MP3 so I can play it on my HTC ONE M8 and my Android based car stereo. (I carry an iphone and and android daily, so yes I use both ecosystems heavily every day)
