Godaddy would have just removed the 2nd factor for the same reason they handed over the "1st" factor. Hiroshima pretended he was the user, who has lost the ability to log in. They would have just reset the password and removed two-factor authentication from the account after the identify was "verified."

Two-factor probably wouldn't have helped here. They reset the account credentials, assuming the owner lost the ability to log in. That would have included resetting any "2nd factor."

I don't think any action on the user's part would have helped any of this other than maybe his comment about the TTL on the MX record.

There's a UE4 game already being worked on that is coming to linux:

Also, with the announcement of Steam OS (linux based), it would be very surprising not to see an officially produced and supported version of UE4 for linux.

I think we have a lot of great stuff to look forward to on that front.

That's a delusional point of view... Apple is forcing users to buy cables at an artificially increased price. This is price fixing/gouging at its finest. There isn't/wasn't anything wrong with the cables the users we using. The manufacturers just didn't pay an apple tax which creates a more expensive product that functions absolutely no better than the cheaper "unauthorized" alternative.

This is anti-competitive and anti-consumer. It's another reason on the pile for while I quit buying apple products, and will continue to avoid them.

I think developers, knowing that players will at least have the hardware, will be free to make Kinect required for their specific games. I'm imagining some kind of art on game cases to specify this, like there was for the 360.

The fact is, most games/developers weren't going to use that rubbish anyway. That kind of control simply isn't the future because people don't WANT to play games and use interfaces that way. It's FAR more of a hassle to wave your hands around than it is to just push a button or move a control stick. If it was 100% reliable like handheld controllers are it'd be one thing, but the kinect as it stands has like a 40% success rate at actually understanding what you're trying to get it to do.

Those who can, do; those who can't, simulate.
