They really need to 'reboot' the game rather than come out with patches every couple of years. They need to just retire the current WoW and start from scratch. There is a barrier of entry for new players now with such a large installed base of 'senior' players but the senior players are aging. They need something for the next generation and the graphics of WoW just can't compare to most of what is out there today. They need to start from scratch with a new engine, storyline, classes, races, etc... Then build back up from there. The writing is on the wall for them now. The new generation is also probably not willing to fork out 15/mo for a game and are getting use to free-to-play style with in game purchases. With that frame of mind you either need to join that wave, or provide something significantly better to get them to pay. The current WoW can't attract that new gen of gamer.
I can't say I've ever been affected by DRM because I just don't buy software or games anymore. Why complain about all these things having DRM, just don't buy it. Simple enough solution. If you aren't buying crap with DRM why complain about it? They'll figure out DRM is a problem real quick if no one is buying their shit.
So if you have 4 USB SS ports on a motherboard that motherboard is going to have to be able to supply 400W @ 5V? You can't be serious. We'll need dedicated power connections on the motherboard just to supply this.
The example of using a TV to power multiple devices raises the same concerns. Now the TV power supply will be much more complicated. Rather than power just the 60-70W the TV draws it needs to have a power supply that could supply 100's of extra watts?
The only application I see for this is to use 100W USB SS ports on walls for a common household DC standard interface. That could be interesting, but integrating it into devices is not simple. It adds levels of complexities to the devices that will need to supply the power.
All these shows (Futurama, Simpsons, Family Guy, South Park) are all stale. Just not funny or edgy anymore. Just kind of blah... I can't be bothered to watch any of them at this point.
I had all my domains in Godaddy but I was fed up with trying to find the hidden option to manage my domains in pages and pages of advertisements.
It seemed to me that, if I paid for a service, I don't want to be bombarded by ads every time I need to use this service.
I moved to Namecheap and never looked back.
Completely agree. The webpage is a absolute mess at GoDaddy. You would think that a company that is 'selling' the internet and setting up webpages would set a good example. I moved all my domains to Namecheap yesterday as well. Figured if I waited till today they may be too swamped
We're currently evaluating RHEV as a VMWare replacement due to the high cost of VMWare deployment. Just doesn't make sense to keep bleeding money for the same capabilities that RHEV can provide for about 20-30% of the price.
