Simply blocking Google.com and its related sub-domains such as (mail.google.com, play.google.com, maps.google.com etc) could potentially have been a mistake, but adding Google.com.kk and Google Analytics (which would require tow separate actions) suggests it was no mistake).
Chinese authorities could be trying to gauge public opinion on the blocking of Google and Gmail ahead of a more widespread censorship in the future."

I usually pirate software before I try them. If it's worth it, I will buy it. Same thing with games. Is it worth it to spend 60 for a 8-16 hours game that I will trow away in the garbarge or let it gather dust in my cabinet cause I only played it once
Prove to me..or us here, people of
It gotten to be a turd only because the market was already saturated at that point. By the time the dreamcast went out, other consoles were already on the market. At best, the Dreamcast was just picking the leftovers of the pie for its share. Investors weren't satisfied so they had to back up. Today, when you release a console, you can either release it soon with a couple of games on your hand and hope the developers will pick it up and continue to release some games or...
you take a change of releasing the console after some others release it and at the same time, try to keep up the hype with some PR scheme and release lots of games after its release. The important part in a consoles life is after its release, devs, publishers and everyone else has to keep support the console to keep selling their crap. Nintendo figured that with the Wii console. Like it or not they've put all their money on that part because they targeted family and it worked.
