You are free to piss away your money on any damned thing you want to.
But, in general, I'd say it's a fair observation that Kick Starter mostly serves to fund people who have an idea, and nothing else
From the stories we see, it really has the hallmarks of a Ponzi scheme as a bunch of guys play the get-rich-quick game by pretending they have a business plan.
I've never heard of either Razer or Ouya, but the news stories I've seen over the last few years says I'd never pay into a Kick Starter.
Who you give your money to is your damned business.
It's like PT Barnum said, there's a sucker born every minute.
Razer has been around for years. Known for making "gaming" peripherals for the PC such as keyboards and mice. They're not running any kickstarter campaign here, they're absorbing some technical talent from a former kickstarter company to do something similar to what that company did. RTFA.

so that's great for your hipster credentials... but what about your computers specs?
Go Fuck. Yourselves.
I agree with this. Also, it doesn't matter who is elected in, they all serve the same masters. Which is why you see Nobama acting just as bad as Bush etc... whoever comes next, assuming Obama doesn't declare himself Emperor... will be worse.
--- anonymous uverse tech This is whats going on, any new gateway or exisiting gateway that is restarted will not be able to obtain service. The DHCP servers are overloaded and over capacity, CMS has disabled their northbound API so no provisioning can get thru in order to lessen the load. Its not affecting everyone in the affected areas, and as a precaution NO ONE should attempt to powercycle or reset their gateway for any reason.
LOL, I bet Level 1 tech scripts are really useful now. Sir, have you rebooted your router? Please reboot your router, awwww
My apologies, I did not realize you were mentally deficient. I didn't mean to make fun.
Let me explain so even you can understand. Hypothetical situation (means not real, but could be): I install Linux on a spare PC I have laying around. I attempt to install the driver for the graphics card in this spare PC. I click the button labeled "click here to install just works graphics driver". It doesn't work, gives an error message. Do some reading online, find other people with same problem, they say go to CLI and type this to make it work. I do so and it now "just works". This is my personal "experience" with installing a driver in Linux.
You do the same, click the "just works" button. And it works. This is YOUR experience with installing a driver in Linux.
There ya go, go drink that chocolate milk your mom just brought down to you.
But it's still crashy both on video drivers and API being badly implemented in it, and you still need fairly deep knowledge of the OS to get stuff properly installed, configured and running.
Do you know what I did to get my graphics card up and running on Linux...NOTHING. You clearly have never used Linux.
Yes because your personal experience with Linux equates to what everyone experiences with it. Yep, no differences. You clearly haven't left your mom's basement in a VERY long time.
Or maybe you Christian-right nannies should fuck right off.
This is out of New York, one of the most left states in the union. How is this comment insightful?
You are preventing them from engaging in commerce and public life.
It's basically Amish shunning or Hawthorne's Scarlet letter but without the obvious initial "buy in" of joining an extremist religious cult first.
The sacred cow will ensure the precedent is set in general so that it can be applied to YOU next time.
I believe the intent is to prevent pedophile pedators from clandestinely communicating with potential underage prey. However, since sex-offender status is applied to more than just pedophiles, I would think that this is overly broad.
But since creepy and pervy is so creepy and pervy and decent people don't want to be associated with creepy and pervy and doing so may alert law enforcement, I doubt anybody will actually object to this treatment. They basically adopt the "don't do kiddie porn, don't fark teens and kiddies, don't rape or grope anybody and don't expose yourself in public if you want to play online games" attitude.
"Creepy and Pervy" is a slippery slope. Person A calls themselves a christian and as such doesn't agree with the lifestyle choices a homosexual makes. BAM, hate crime! Kick em off the internet! Can't have those horrible creepy ideas making their way out to other people! We're a civilized society.
