According to the euro conversion, this thing is a MAME device that costs close to $600 before shipping and handling. The North America distributor is showing "Product no longer available" so it can only be ordered from Germany's Dragonbox. I also like the graphic on the website that says "Almost the same size as a Nintendo DS. Am I missing something?

EPC does the same thing. Though they don't degauss the drive. They completely destroy it. I am fortunate to have one of their recycling centers in town and believe me there is nothing like watching your hard drives go up a 30 foot conveyor belt into a 30 foot tall shredder and come out as slivers.

I don't work for them, I'm just damn happy they exist. Capitalism at its best, find a need and fill it.

So has Slashdot now become the Socialist News that Matters? This is utter bullshit. All those roads and bridges you all spout about, yes in some cases DOT's built them but most of the time the states realized they didn't know how to do it and hired private contractors to build.

How did they pay those contractors or the DOT's that mostly fill potholes with asphalt....with my freaking tax dollars!

The Federal government does not produce income without taking it from the people who work. These so called 1% are paying 55.85% of their income to taxes to San Francisco California and the Fed. You should be thanking them.

Delude himself that it was his hard work.....I'm am just shocked at the amount of Socialist BS that is flowing in America. Yes, hard work is important. Were there roads before Ford built his first car? Were there bridges built by the government before the locomotive? Why do we have air traffic controllers and the TSA? The car, the train, the airplane...all built by capitalist individuals that then forced the government to respond. The private sector is always ahead of the public. You want a handout you take, I'm going to work as hard as I can, learn as much as I can, help my fellow humans as much as I can and have my voice heard with my vote. The fact that this post got moderated as high as it did is very telling Slashdot.

On October 28, 2013, the Company entered into a new Credit Agreement, which provides for a $50 million term loan facility and a revolving loan facility of $200 million, with both facilities maturing in October 2018. Borrowings under the Credit Agreement bear interest at the Company's option, at a LIBOR rate or base rate plus a margin. The margin ranges from 1.75% to 2.50% on LIBOR loans and 0.75% to 1.50% on base rate loans, determined by the Company's most recent consolidated leverage ratio. Interest rates and covenants in the new Credit Agreement are consistent with the previous Credit Agreement. Quarterly payments of principal are required on the term loan facility, commencing March 31, 2014. The facilities may be prepaid at any time without penalty and payments on the term loan facility result in a permanent reduction. The Company borrowed $65 million under the new Credit Agreement to repay in full all outstanding indebtedness under the previous Credit Agreement, which was terminated upon repayment.

The link he posted showed a grand total of 23 games. One released in 2013, one in 2010 and the rest 2009 all the way back to 1998. I give Steam credit for taking this on and for the prices they are charging but I believe Newell is blowing smoke up Linux user's butt to increase sales.
