For anything coming out of the US Army, think China, Russia, India, Israel, the UK, France. It might be real military espionage, or straight commercial thievery. Both are bad.
You forgot US corporations & other US agencies from that list.
Sad but true. Its hard to stay in business being honest and open when standard business practices are to sling mud, lie, cheat and break the law.
I didn't say gaming Windows PCs was dead, just that to Microsoft it is. The only thing the new consoles (& Steam) might have killed is PC gaming's dependence on Windows but its still far too early to tell.
Consoles don't have the upper hand technologically even now except maybe over PC World style 'home computers'.
That could change. Microsoft has shown time and again that they don't care about PC gaming. To Microsoft, DirectX is a tool to persuade customers to upgrade Windows & hardware when its rarely needed these days. Thanks to the newest consoles, PC gaming will be mostly stuck at 1080p on a mid range gaming PC for the next 5 years. Sure they'll support higher resolutions but with TV screen FOVs & UIs.
Steam as DRM is as effective on Linux as it is on Windows and most games companies have realized that 'tied to an online account' is about as much DRM as most people will tolerate.
With the platforms being so similar it should be easier to port games these days. If they're smart they'll write as much code as possible to be portable to between XB1 & PS4. Porting code to Linux should be much easier now that the PS4 is an x64 CPU running a FreeBSD derived OS. It wouldn't surprise me if games start to be released on PS4 & Linux but not on Windows.
I'd love AMD to release a Mantle PS4 API for Linux.
Google, Apple & Microsoft will control (and stagnate) the HA industry by buying up all the innovative little patent holders to try to force people their platform.
Dingo states the obvious
No Death Star so I tried to Kickstarter one.. how the hell do I exploit this for lols?
I doubt many people feel bad for downloading porn for free
Download porn? Watching it more than once feels too much like a relationship.
He answers this in his talk at TED
AAA - A game title that cost more to market and push down people's throats than the cost to actually make it. You can tell these games because theres more trailers, teasers and cut-scenes leaked than actual footage.
Analogy: A turd in a very pretty & shiny box.

I backed https://www.kickstarter.com/pr... but ignorance is bliss eh troll.
I'm sure anything useful will soon be patented by Google, Apple or Microsoft.
The government and politicians will listen eventually, and all it takes is a lot of letter-writing and actual voting.
That just shows how little you know about how government works. I suggest you watch if you want to learn the truth.
Lawrence Lessig's SuperPACs might be the only thing that could actually change things and even that is a long shot.
