If they wish to engage to aggression against other country's sovereignty, they should do it without the rest of the world helping fund them.

EU countries pay Putin billions of dollars for gas (some of them are close to 100% dependent on Russian gas). The only kind of sanctions that would really harm Putin would be reducing gas imports. It's VERY hard to do in a short time and many EU countries event don't try to do that.

Except for the cell phone in your pocket, that can recognize your commands and search the internet for what you requested, or translate your statement into any of a dozen foreign languages, (...)

+ - Oculus Suspends Oculus Rift Dev Kit Sales in China

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Bad news for those of you looking to get your hands on a preorder of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. A representative from Oculus recently confirmed that the company has had to stop selling its headsets in China as a result of an undisclosed amount of reselling. Which is to say, some of those preordering the developer edition of the virtual reality headset in China — not the consumer product, which hasn't been officially released in any capacity just yet — aren't actually looking to develop anything on the headsets. Nor are they even interested in getting a first look at the virtual reality capabilities of the $350 development kit. They're scalping, plain and simple, to take advantage of what appears to be a hefty amount of demand for the device."
