Actually M. Night Shyamalan wrote Bioshock 2's script but it was canned after they found out he was one of the masterminds behind 9/11

Surely that depends on whether the infection gets into your blood?
I don't think anyone's suggesting you shouldn't get antibiotics for MRSA, provided you can get some it's not resistant to. The issue is that MRSA develop(s)(ed) from over-use of antibiotics for treating things that don't really require them, and by people not completing their courses.
Kudos to you sir, seems no one wants to talk about population management.
You do realise that he was talking about "population management" as a bad thing?
And 1999 was a record breaking year for the music industry; surpassing sales for all time. It also was a time of economic boom. But then that bubble burst.
The same thing happened with radio. Free music was the death knell of the industry! Sales were at an all-time low! Nevermind that little thing called The Great Depression. Radio killed the music industry.
Like I noted, the music industry isn't immune to economic downturn. But look at what they're doing even in this economy (and that's using RIAA's numbers).
How can you be sure that methicillin would not exist? After all the famous antibiotic penicillin came from bread mold.It's not just humans that want/need to kill undesirable bacteria.fungi, bacteria etc have been killing each other for the past billion years or so.
I just got a roku for my parents, and at $100 it does what it needs to just fine. I can see Roku easily adding a USB port and "Media" channel to a future box without touching the pricepoint and doing the same thing all of these other boxes do.
Oh and it doesn't look like that stupid melted cube that D-link is trying to sell.
We were looking at a Roku over the holidays...
The laptop I was using to stream Netflix died on us, and I didn't have enough parts around to make a replacement Netflix box. The Roku looked like a decent device.
Then we noticed the Samsung BD-P1590... Costs more than a Roku, obviously, but it does more too. Plays DVDs, blu-ray discs, Netflix, Blockbuster, Pandora, YouTube...
We wound up buying the Samsung instead of the Roku. Replaced our old DVD player and the dead laptop.
it's no good attacking them based on the fact they export oil. all the climate researchers who advocate AGW have a budget dependant on global warming research funding, do we also attack them and cast doubt on their motives because of it?
No, because they are actually climate scientists. This Russian Institute of Economic Analysis garbage is a Libertarian think-tank, not a scientific organization, and certainly not a climate research institution.
isn't this an issue with the company not purchasing the proper licenses in the appropriate amount of time rather than an issue with DRM?
It's perfectly indicative of how DRM is bad. DRM assumes that everything would work perfectly, all the time. And when it doesn't, for whatever reason, you lose the right to use your own legally owned content. Just like the movie studio, a leagal user of the film, lost their capability. If the movie studios and their limited number of partners with gazillion-dollar pieces of equipment can't make it work, what chance do meaningless slobs like me have?
Answer: none. I need to just assume that sooner or later the content I paid for will just stop working. And that's wrong.
kinetic weapons would be ideal
Just fit some armor hardeners and that thing will tank like a mutha...
DeusEx? whats that?
