People that have something worth saying usually end up gagged, blindfolded, thrown in the back of a van, and end up in some secret prison.
Ok go back to the 80's or 90's when they weren't needing to build/upgrade their fabs with every new chip design.
But if everyone did start wearing the non-conformist hat and you used to be the only kid on the block with one wouldn't that make you a trendsetter and thus the biggest conformist of them all?
In fact forget the boat racing and the blackjack.
Something tells me your kids aren't immunized.
Oddly such an abuse would be the exact opposite of what we usually see in western megacorporations: no money for wages and investement, everything for the shareholders.
Yeah but in the end it's all the same. The people that break their backs for the company don't get anything but the shaft.
Everyone knows that plasma was made up by Hollywood to keep Ghostbusters scientifically accurate.
Ok I am probably going to get blasted for this but.... The ZuneHD was a great piece of hardware and gave a hell of a lot more bang for the buck than the comparable priced iPod of the time. That being said it wasn't the device itself that was horrible but the lack of any real apps or support from Microsoft that made it such a joke.
Whereas I know plenty of people who have a computer in their living room, and probably not as many who have consoles. Who's to say which is really more representative? Does it even matter? It's clear from the sales figures that both are huge groups as a whole.
How many of those living room computers can handle playing modern games with decent settings and getting a decent frame rate?
It's people's choices that put them there...
I'll make sure to tell that to the veterans that got drafted and were forced to fight for a war they wanted no part of. Sorry gramps you should have jumped the boarder when you had the chance.
Not all politicians lie. Some are just deluded into believing what they are saying or saying what they have been brainwashed into believing only to find that reality is a different game altogether. Some are just inexperienced and incompetent to understand the truth from a lie that has been passed on to them.
Someone being wrong is not someone telling a lie. There is a note of having to know and understand what you are saying is not true or correct in order for there to be a lie involved. A lie carries an intent to deceive or misdirect where being wrong can result from being lied to originally, not having all the information or having incorrect information or something even more challenging, an opinion that doesn't necessarily translate into the real world situation.
There is a saying about blaming malice over incompetence and most of the so called lies seem to be nothing more then incompetence.
When the hell did this become about George W. Bush?
I've never seen a drunk stumble and kill a family of 4.
What part of violating the TOS don't you understand?
AMD did this back with their Phenom X3's. There was such a high demand for the low cost triple core processors that they disabled a core on some four core processors and sold them as X3s till they ramped up production. I was lucky enough to get one of the four cored processors and was able to re-enable the fourth core through my bios.
Its not that a ban is a cure but more of a deterrent. But I do think a ban alone won't do much without some stiff penalties. Like if someone commits a crime with one of your printed guns you share the charges. Things like that would stop most people from being irresponsible if they still do decide to print one.
