Man Sues Neighbor For Not Turning Off His Wi-Fi 428 428

Scyth3 writes "A man is suing his neighbor for not turning off his cell phone or wireless router. He claims it affects his 'electromagnetic allergies,' and has resorted to being homeless. So, why doesn't he check into a hotel? Because hotels typically have wireless internet for free. I wonder if a tinfoil hat would help his cause?"

EA Shutting Down Video Game Servers Prematurely 341 341

Spacezilla writes "EA is dropping the bomb on a number of their video game servers, shutting down the online fun for many of their Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 games. Not only is the inclusion of PS3 and Xbox 360 titles odd, the date the games were released is even more surprising. Yes, Madden 07 and 08 are included in the shutdown... but Madden 09 on all consoles as well?"

Comment Re:Linux audio (Score 4, Insightful) 374 374

What bothers me here is that I read "Oh, change this, do that turn this knob and sound will work for you." Then it works until there's a new kernel update (I use Ubuntu) and it breaks again. Or it just stops working after too many applications use it.

Then you read how fabulous PulseAudio is and how wonderful it is, but it just plain does not work. By working, it should work every time, all the the time without knob turning. It's embarrassing that in this area, Windows 95 is superior to Linux in almost every respect.

All this effort is put into chrome polishing the kernel for faster SMP with 64 CPU systems and the dang box can't even play music without having some sort of brain failure.
