I have insurance, USD 2.50 (two dollars 50cents) per month and then a deductible of USD50 for the replacement phone (for a Galaxy S5) . While they are getting the replacement ready I have a loaner of the same model for a week or so (I get the loaner the same day), all data transferred / backed up between changes if I want.

Teathering plans, up to 7Gig / month (after that slows down to 1Mb/s), are included with my phone plan.... and I can teather it to my car navigation system via bluetooth for music, map updates, news and other things as of 3 years ago. I thought this would be standard everywhere by now.


Ubisoft's Authentication Servers Go Down 634

from the single-point-of-well-you-know dept.
ZuchinniOne writes "With Ubisoft's fantastically awful new DRM you must be online and logged in to their servers to play the games you buy. Not only was this DRM broken the very first day it was released, but now their authentication servers have failed so absolutely that no-one who legally bought their games can play them. 'At around 8am GMT, people began to complain in the Assassin's Creed 2 forum that they couldn't access the Ubisoft servers and were unable to play their games.' One can only hope that this utter failure will help to stem the tide of bad DRM."

Real Users find the one combination of bizarre input values that shuts down the system for days.
