this is the most annoying part of the AGW movement, moving to smarter sources of energy has a lot of benefits over just burning oil because "everything is probably fine". i foresee electric cars for example becoming the norm simply because there is a lot more room for improvement in the tech that will make them more efficient and powerful than fuel burners, and this is the easiest way to move forward for deniers and true believers alike.
that's not entirely true, there's a lot more fringe stuff like the multi-language channels and the NITV indigenous channel, especially on SBS and ABC. getting a 12 hr a day kids feed on ABC 2 is pretty useful, and a couple of 24 hr news channels that actually seem OK would probably be a boon if i bothered watching that stuff. not saying it's really increased my viewing time but it does actually make tv more useful.
i think he's thinking of iptv
good luck man, maybe if you bitch particularly hard the internet will go backwards 10 years, but i can't really see it
without the possibility of rehabilitation prisons are a pointless endeavour. you would be better off simply executing the prisoners and getting on with things.

i bought it because at worst i got a powerful little linux box, at best i can replace my raspbmc box with something i can fire up some indy games on.
bugger all as far as i can tell, these things are getting shipped at less than a trickle. i'm pretty much expecting mine to be at least a month away.
actually notepad is a pretty good example of why this practice sucks, most people put up with that piece of shit because it came free with the operating system rather than finding something that's actually good.
lies, they reduced the illusionary complexity in cata, like everyone else i just chose cookie cutter specs and "did whatever i wanted with the last 3 points". "for number crunchers" - exactly, both of them probably really enjoyed working that out for everyone else to copy. if you're only using 6 buttons you're a terrible player, even on my ret pally i'm messing around with 11 buttons i'll use at least every second fight and another 4 situationally.
you are horribly wrong, runescape peaked at about 1.2 mill
they'll do whatever anyone else with a failing mmo would do, at the moment that would be free to play but in 10 years when it drops below x mill subs who knows what that will be.
i'd actually like to know the average age of wow players, i rarely meet anyone young in there. also you have no fucking clue about trends, facebook games have been dieing off horribly over the last year
