You can't permanently band people from Steam when all you need to create a new account is an e-mail address. People will just use a new throwaway account for hacking

So what? It still magnifies the cost substantially.

The way to go is to make getting a pass to play online painfully difficult.

I don't think even Valve can get away with that.

How, as a society, do we fund the creation of big budget movies that a lot of people really enjoy?

Crowdsourcing, I suppose. You pay for the movie ahead of time, and based on your investment you get to see the film, download it, get a DVD or a Blu-Ray or an M4V, get to be an extra in a crowd scene or whatever they're offering. There's no reason that major studios can't use this model. And then there's merchandising, official conventions, and lots of other opportunities for profit. I don't really think that there will be any problem getting enough people to fund some of these big-budget stinkers.

+ - Firefox Will Soon Offer One-Click Buttons for Your Search Engines

An anonymous reader writes "Mozilla today unveiled some of the new search features coming to Firefox. The company says the new additions are "coming soon to a Firefox near you" but didn’t give a more specific timeline. The news comes less than a week after Mozilla struck a deal with Yahoo to replace Google as the default search engine in its browser for U.S. users. At the time, the company said a new search experience was coming in December, so we’re betting the search revamp will come with the release of Firefox 34, which is currently in beta. In the future release, when you type a search term into the Firefox search box, you will get a list of reorganized search suggestions from the default search provider. Better yet, a new array of buttons below these suggestions will let you pick which search engine you want to send the query to."

When all else fails, read the instructions.
