They could always make it easy to learn how to fiddle with instead of trying to make it meet their concept of good. I hold up the reaction to the Gnome Shell as an example of what can go wrong. Free software is free to me because it has helped me to write software. There is nothing that makes me feel more free than having my apps and content on my servers to be accessed at will. Well, except when my ISP decides it is file sharing or I'm using too much bandwidth.
Is an exothermic reactor considered internal combustion?
1) Snarf IMEI numbers and access devices as they pass by using an exploitable bluetooth bug.
2) Send letter to people telling them you own them and will do evil things to them if they do not pay up.
3) profit ???
4) Send letter to phone service using info snag'd from bug.
My name is Passer Bye. My phone is stolen. The phone info is...

According to steam:
Out of 2,750 titles tracked 4% were interesting/playable to gamers using steam.
I wonder why people are discouraged about buying games without playing them first.
That 4%, the top 110 games, have made approximately $8,000,000,000. And that is just 50% of the sales numbers, "represents about 50 percent of the registered sales on the service".
It doesn't sound like piracy is making much of a impact to me.
I keep forgetting how old I am. Master Blaster run barter town
Now aliens can swoop down and destroy the two cities I finally got updated with a wooden wall. I can't wait! Anyone know what tech in the tech tree comes after pottery? I don't expect I'll get that far in the new version either.
By "free to play" I thought it was like this actual good games that are free. Not that tossing them a few $20 for the games wouldn't be a cool thing to do, they are free games to play.
Comcast starts out against Yahoo! and Facebook, two complete weenies compared to the companies Time Warner had to beat get the spot. Take EA, Koch, and Salie Mae, and put them in a blender and you won't get a mixture. All 3 turds have the exact same stink and consistency. It says a lot to see Monsato come out dirtier than a company that fought its way through that pile. Time Warner totally should have won.
If a personal gaming device, like a PSP or Genesis, was released built into a VR headset people would buy it. I don't know if it would be the next big thing; but, I can see it being sufficiently successful.
Wouldn't the refresh rate be the greater factor over resolution in reducing latency? I don't see the connection with resolution and latency.
\o/ internet pr0n is going to be even better!
I'll believe the hype when I see the geeks using it turn buff. Not that I'd put down my doughnut and use it.
15 years ago Yahoo! destroyed broadcast.com, something that was better than YouTube will ever be. Now they have decided to start broadcast.com minus the in-house professionals that encoded and streamed the content for you. In April 1999, Yahoo! acquired the company for $5.7 billion (or over $10,000 per user) in stock and renamed it
