While the best response to you is Don't Feed The Troll... Did you really just pull partisan bias out of your ass, then defend yourself when called out on it by making the hilarious statement that Godwin's law somehow supports your position? Godwin's law is simply an observation, which you proved, on the inevitability of a Hitler/Nazi comparison in an online discussion. Also, if you want to be taken seriously, facts are more productive than personal attacks. Saying things like "you don't know what you're talking about" or "you're probably clueless" without providing a relevant rebuttal might lead one to assume the same of you.

+ - 150" 3D TV For Your Face

It supports 3D and simulates a 150" screen viewed from 12 feet away paired with (also simulated) 5.1 surround. Think Aliens facehugger crossed with Geordi La Forge's visor, tethered to a processing box. If strapping a 1lb device to your face is a deal-breaker, just rig a pulley system."

Squeenix has anticipated your gripes about no endgame being present in their latest masterpiece, and their solution is the Fatigue System! They promise that it's only to level the playing field between casual gamers and the MMORPG IS SRS BSNS crowd. It's certainly not an attempt to stretch out their meager content by restricting character growth. Cue the mildly condescending video where they explain it to the masses: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abE09-tqhoM

+ - Lobbyist for Hire CAGW opposes Net Neutrality->

Submitted by rWagz
rWagz (1661659) writes "It would appear that the broadband companies have enlisted the aid of Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) to legitimize their fight against net neutrality. (link — wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citizens_Against_Government_Waste) It would appear that CAGW is a gun for hire that lobbies in exchange for pay on behalf of companies that want it to seem as though Citizens (capital C) are opposed to say, Net Neutrality, legislation against Microsoft and/or Big Tobacco."
