Verizon Changes FiOS AUP, -1, Offtopic 560

RasputinAXP writes "Verizon has changed their FiOS AUP effective yesterday, and added an interesting new clause to their specific examples that we're all familiar with: 'it is a violation of the Agreement and this AUP to ... post off-topic information on message boards, chat rooms or social networking sites.' At this point, every FiOS-based Slashdot user is breaking the new AUP."

Submission + - Wolfenstein Being Recalled in Germany (ign.com) 1

D1gital_Prob3 writes: "September 22, 2009 — PCGames.de is reporting Wolfenstein, the latest iteration on the classic first-person shooter from Activision, is being recalled from retails shelves in Germany due to the inclusion of the swastika symbol found somewhere in the game. The German version was supposed to have all symbols removed.

Exact details are a bit fuzzy at the moment, as most of this information is coming via translation; however, it's believed Activision is going to make a statement on this matter this week.

As Planet Wolfenstein points out, two developers on the project, Raven Software and Endrant, have both been part of massive employee layoffs recently. If the German version needs to be edited, perhaps another studio will have to do the legwork."

The timing seems rather precise in comparison to previous vaporware launches. I say it's fun to watch (http://www.dieblinkenlights.com/blog_en/a-bit-of-vaporware) them showing off non-products like that."
