The graphics are incredibly realistic, but the gameplay is frustrating and the plot just sucks.
The starting areas are not well balanced either. And there are too many pay to win elements.
Alright, point taken. However you were misattributing the joke. When stating that "The BBC is reporting[...]" it would be nice for the sentence to describe things that the BBC is reporting. Consider the beginning of the comment I was replying to: "It's ironic that the story would say[...]"
It's ironic that the story would say you won't find this issue with a Mac Book air.
Not really, that seems to be a non-article related Macbook Air promotion. "The BBC is reporting that Dell's Latitude 6430u Ultrabooks have an interesting characteristic you won't find in any Macbook Air". Surprisingly the words Macbook and Apple seem to be missing from the article.
Hold on, she was the victim here. SHe doesn't need to do encryption because at one point thre was this thing called the constitution.
Yes, she was the victim. However, there are ways of making yourself less likely to become a victim. This is what we are talking about.
So are you saying that if the files had been encrypted, they wouldn't have been confiscated, all of this would not have happened?
What else precautions one should make not to become the victim of one's own government? Is leaving home allowed? Is there a list of approved websites to visit?
You are making the case that the government is a bullying criminal. And while you can and perhaps should avoid getting the attention of a hooligan/bully/criminal, the government is at least in principle there for you. And in my mind this makes the situation completely different. One shouldn't bow to bullies, but having a bullying government is worse.
And yes, of course the files should have been encrypted. I wonder if they would have detained her in that case.
Why? Why should ebooks be cheaper than dead trees? Are they less convienient? Do they wear out faster?
Some obvious points
- They are cheaper to distribute
- They are cheaper to produce
- In most cases they contain DRM and you can't sell them
- In most cases they contain DRM and you can't easily lend the book
- They require you to buy additional equipment
And yes, they do have positive points also.
Without free Internet access, libraries today would be nothing more than useless repositories of books that no one wants to read. Libraries don't even have a monopoly on free Internet access, either: many coffee shops also offer free Wi-Fi.
Nah. All libraries are full of books I don't want to read. Yet, they seem to contain hundreds of books I do want to read. And I buy too many books. Perhaps some day more ebooks, but I feel like the ebooks should be cheaper than their dead tree equivalents.
As a sidenote: Not too many coffee shops offer free Wi-Fi and equipment to non-customers.
kids understand death sooner than they understand sex.
I seriously doubt that. In fact, I'm not sure all adults understand death.
While I completely agree with the statement, I wish the parents were actually making an informed decision instead of just buying the game since 'it is only a game'. This is acceptable if the parent knows that the kid also understands that it is a only a game.
I am not at all sure I expressed myself clearly here...
the audience broke into spontaneous laughter.
Yes, I would go with the audience reading the non-verbal clues pretty accurately. I doubt that he would joke about it if it was true.
