If you're referring specifically to the big name pilsners -- Bud, Coors, Miller, Heineken, Corona -- you're absolutely right, they taste exactly the same. But if you open yourself up to the lesser known varieties -- pale ale, IPA, hefeweizen, stout, etc -- you'll see that they do in fact taste very different.

That doesn't work. IE doesn't add the new tags to the DOM properly; tags withing the <article> tag will be added as siblings to the <article>, rather than children. The only way I've found to make an HTML5 site work in IE is to surround all the new tags with old tags, and reference the old tags in the CSS.
For example: <div class="article"><article>...

4-way movement for Crazy Kong / Donkey Kong is more difficult as the Tankstick has 8-way movement

I was going to say the same thing. I bought it specifically for Ms. Pacman, Donkey Kong, and Frogger, and unfortunately it's unusable in all 3. A keyboard works much better.

Submission + - EFF begins tracking terms of service changes 1

netbuzz writes: "Next time a major Web site like Facebook, Google or eBay changes their seldom-read terms of service, a new project from the Electronic Frontier Foundation will be there to chronicle the alterations and highlight them for all to see. Called TOSBack, the EFF site launched today and is already tracking 44 sites. "Terms of service form the foundation of your relationship with social networking sites, online businesses, and other Internet communities, but most people become aware of these terms only when there's a problem," said EFF Activism and Technology Manager Tim Jones. "We created TOSBack to help consumers monitor terms of service for the websites they use everyday, and show how the terms change over time.""

Submission + - Publishers want a slice of used game market ( 3

grigory writes: GameStop's business model depends on a healthy flow of used games: incredibly "[GameStop] enjoys a 48 percent profit margin on used games". Game publishers do not see a cut of the secondary sale because it falls under the first sale doctrine. Now, some publishers and manufacturers want a piece of the pie. "One marketing executive, who did not want to be identified for fear of angering GameStop and other retailers, said the used game sale market is still depriving publishers of money because it gives consumers an all-too-easy alternative to buying a new game." Interesting picture of companies fighting for your business, and (suprise!) complaining about being left out of the money stream.
