This was actually live streamed by Notch on his mobile phone.
Gmail doesn't try to remind you when you forget an to attach an attachment that you mention in the mail.
Sorry to be picky, but Gmail does do that now and has for a while I believe (although may have only been an optional Labs feature until recently).
That's odd I distinctly remember a story line in Borderlands and Magicka.
I mean, so far I haven't seen a SINGLE game in years that offers the ability for you to play through the story mode with a friend/spouse/etc.
A quick look at my library of games in steam reveals the following games that allow co-op through the story line.
Alien Swarm (admittedly only one fairly short campaign by default, but there are community made maps).
Left 4 Dead.
Left 4 Dead 2.
Serious Sam HD First and second encounter (Technically re-releases of games from 2000)
I'm sure there are others out there.
Wouldn't have helped much with the Police here in the UK, you can get thrown in jail for not handing over your encryption password/keys.
Perhaps in any country where Automatic transmission cars are the norm, here in the UK the vast majority of cars are Manual transmission.
We have a national Insurance number, which I believe is a bit like the American SS#.
The one feature Xmarks had (apart from cross browser syncing) that Chrome's built in sync doesn't do is let you control which bookmarks each of your PCs get, for example at work I have a few local only bookmarks, I don't want these on any browsers but my work ones, likewise I have internal links to a couple of boxes at home. This also allowed me to have a link to a box at home link to the 192.168.1.x address and at work my external ip.
Incompatible yes, idiot proof no. I have seen a couple of people who managed to jam a USB plug into the network socket of their laptop.
Out of interest, what has happened to stop you playing HL2? My pre ordered boxed copy is still working fine on steam, and I've gone through at least 3 PCs in that time.
I'm slightly confused as to how being banned from online servers has anything to do with DRM, given that a game with no DRM could still implement a similar anti cheat system to Valve's VAC.
Assuming MW2 works anything like the Valve games with VAC (I'm thinking this may be unlikely as it has no dedicated servers), when you get VAC banned your account is prevented from playing on VAC secured servers (although the unsecured servers tend to be crap and full of people using cheats).
I have a personal account and a work account.
The work account is mostly used for Analytics, but I do occasionally use docs (mostly for collaborative work on a spreadsheet).
I prefer to keep the two separate, one reason being I don't want coworkers/bosses having my home email address(es).
It was a phone number you could call (at least in the uk http://www.shazam.com/music/web/pages/2580.html) long before the iPhone even existed.
the usual multiplayer games don't require that. Just see Valve and TF2 or countless amount of other multiplayer games.
Thats simple to get round, you just don't release a dedicated server for your game, and force everyone to use your matchmaking service for P2P play.
I just had to do some reading up on the Volt, you do realise after the first 40 Miles it has to switch to a petrol powered engine to generate electricity to drive the motor/charge the batteries.
I will admit it does have a higher MPG than most petrol cars, and is similar to most Diesel car's MPG.
I wonder if all the plastics in a Volt are recycled, and on that subject (but perhaps less importantly) if the lubricants it uses are made from crude oil?
Disclaimer: I should probably be doing things to reduce my use of oil, my car only gets around 35 MPG, and I drive the mile to work each day, and I guess I could probably shop a bit closer to home instead of the 40mile weekly round trip to Tesco.
