I quit gaming back in late 80's. If this thing really works, I am back. Anybody tried it?
next year. Nice! Where do I preorder both? http://www.wired.com/techbiz/it/news/2004/03/62867
Besides, some of those last times were rather ugly and could get much uglier. A civil war or revolution using nukes comes to mind.
Don't forget solar eclipse.
Russians say 10 tons at 30 km/s which, if I am to believe WolframAlfa, is around 1 kiloton of TNT. Is it enough to blow windows if exploded at 20 km altitude?
The big issues involve licensing for eBooks and the fact that publishers seem to engage in punitive pricing with Libraries
Mod the parent up please. Yes, this is *the* issue.
On the other hand, on billions of habitable planets over billions of years no one survived to say hello.
Well, it already named, albeit indirectly, after a Russian city Samara - the place where first space rockets were made.
More importantly, South Korea will inherit North's nuclear weapons; a nice bonus.
They became too stupid to get here.
Yes, there is a "presumption of innocence" for chemicals used in food and elsewhere, which is wrong, imho. Any new poison can be legally used, and when it is found it is really a poison, it takes 20 years to prove scientifically and then another 10 years legally, which is way too long for a given person - he's likely be dead by the time. It used to be different - there were legally "natural" foods and "artificial" and it had to be marked as such on the label. Corporations fought it and won (that's how we got ingredients list, instead of a simple one word - artificial). Sure, it's impossible to go back as there are too many people on earth to feed naturally - most will have to eat falsified foods. We know that nature always finds a way to kill overpopulated species (one either find a way to control it's own population or disappear) and I think food poisons, not nuclear weapons, is the way to be used on us.
This is exactly why I personally try to avoid any paid software and such like a plague and use free source. It's not because I mind paying - I actually want to pay people for their work - but because I feel that if I bought something, it is unconditionally mine to do whatever I want with it. Yes, the law is currently different; yes we shell try to change it. Meantime, I just don't buy that kind of products unless absolutely unavoidable. For example, I'd love to have iPad - it's great - but I will not buy it ever.
May I ask why Chrome is better for Netflix? (no trolling - just don't know)
Do I really want to give my Google password to and external site... just thinking.
Second that. It's my homepage for years. Somebody's making a very bad decision.
