The Korean government hacks a Japanese company and the U.S. are taking action over it. Say what? All this over a "movie" that hadn't even been released so Korea (or anyone) really knew the actual content. It's nuts to think a government would go to such lengths over something that wasn't released that could have been totally non-offensive. I could understand if some was pissed off AFTER it had been released, but not before. It's just too extreme for so many unknowns.

At current trents.....bla, bla, bla. I think we all agree, that if we base it on current population growth and the current mindest of "just build more and bigger power stations" then the opitons are limited Whats overlooked in alomost every one of these "studies" funded by power companies is the decentralisation of power. Each household and business has the ability to conserve their power (insulation, efficent heating, etc), plus generate their own power (using solar, wind - where possible, regenative power). This model will remove the need for bigger and more power stations. The main issue with this model isnt changing peoples minds; its that under this decentralised model power companies would reduce or lose their profits. So the current model remains :(

Almost every gamer I know couldnt care less what o/s they are using as long as their games and "game related" programs run properly (Teamspeak, etc). They use Windows cause there is no other viable option now. With SteamOS all this would change. They would most likely prefer to run Linux and spend the money saved on more games. Bring it on!!
