Comment Really? (Score 1) 151

So now my car will come with an EULA? What if I don't agree to updated terms? Will they take it back and give me a full refund? Will my vehicle "drive" if I do not agree or opt out? Sounds like another PS3 debacle to me. Let me guess - you will no longer own your car (although you'll certainly pay for it) and of course will not be allowed to do any repairs or maintenance yourself. Better yet, trying to access (or wipe) your own data will equate with piracy. Sorry if I sound jaded/skeptical (I've spent too long on /.)

Comment Sony - are you listening? (Score 1) 193

I think that its great that you get a compatible digital copy. I have tons of digital PS3 games that currently do not work on the PS4. With sony's acquisition of Gaikai and this PS Now thing, why can't Sony do the same instead of trying to get me to rent/stream a PS3 game I already own? Really hope this gets sony thinking

Electricity rates are going up, making peak usage twice as expensive as off peak usage. I think that a lot of businesses could benefit from something like this if they could finance the upfront costs of batteries+ installation. While my understanding of our electrical systems is limited, it seems like batteries should have been part of our grid for exactly these reasons as well as emergencies etc. - it just seems like we have something that is always on, always outputting based on demand projections, so how do we make it smarter?

... and it's not my kids stealing. They were playing Penguin Wings 2 and bought about $20 of stuff for their little characters. It was my fault for wanting to distract them, and I changed my settings so that my password is needed each time now. I don't thinl it's google responsibility to protect people from themselves, and a dev who made a fun game got $20 for their work. People just need to use common sense/chillax.

A rock store eventually closed down; they were taking too much for granite.
