Between looking forward to Doom, Unreal Tournament and now this, it's like the 90s all over again.
You could say the same about any fairly unsecured transport network. There's countless bridges, buses, trains and stations worldwide that could cause a massive loss of life and there's virtually no security bar some token "No unaccompanied bags" notices. I suppose we should just be thankful that terrorists are not actually intelligent enough to figure it out.
The unfortunate truth of the matter is that whilst the threat of terrorism perhaps doesn't scare everyone, it certainly inconveniences everyone. Time is money, and the simple fact that these security precautions cost lots of it are helping them to win.
As much as I like all these cool endeavours that Nasa goes on, they really need to hurry up and invent a faster than light drive. April 4th, 2063 is fast approaching.
Portfolio, portfolio, portfolio.
Don't let a piece a paper show a potential employee that you have the skills on just that, paper, actually show them what you're capable of. Build a portfolio of work, showcasing your best products and sell yourself through that.
If an employeer doesn't respect or look to the portfolio of a potential employee in that line of work, truth be told they probably aren't worth working for.
I'd say DRM encourages piracy more than anything. I'd rather a game just work, than having to jump through hoops to make it work. If a game has something like Securom, frankly I'd rather pirate than have to deal with it. DRM never works, it will always be cracked. There's no getting around that fact.
In truth I never like pirating, if a company makes a good game I'm of the opinion that they deserve my money, but sometimes they don't make it easy to take. Dreamfall is a noticeable game I remember, I have the boxed copy which uses a disk check, but thankfully there are loads of DRM-free
The quality of the journalists for Tabloids will be tested with this one, how will they manage to spin this into saying it was an awful tragedy and no one thinks of the children? Assuming they don't just say hacking causes cancer, or something.
I'd wager that any parent would assume their mid-puberty son who spends time sitting alone in his room with the door closed will be beating off. However, I'd also hazard a guess that the vast majority of said children, if they find their favorite and most convenient source of nudity is suddenly blocked, will not approach their parents and ask for the internet porn back.
I'm not a parent, but my attitude toward it would be to unblock the porn and let the internet answer any questions they may have. Perhaps I'm not a parent for good reason.
For the legions of probably around 14-to-[something] year olds that live at home leeching "free" internet from their parent's wallets.
PC gamers were introduced to serial codes yonks ago, and compared to modern DRM I'd be happy with what the PS3 is about to get. I can only fear for what security measures future consoles have, and I can see it only being a matter of time before there's a console that requires an active internet connection before it will even turn on.
Still, I'm a PC gamer and someone who prefers to buy games, first hand, than pirate or buy pre-owned. If I enjoy a game, the developer deserves my money. However, if a developer does not let me play a game, why should I give them anything?
In regards to the whole jumping on the $10 preowned thingy bandwagon, I wonder how much of it is just money-grabbing seeing as its a virtually cost-free way to make a little extra, rather than Sony genuinely fearing their business will end up collapsing due to some second hand sales.
If they want to reduce piracy, they need to provide more incentive for purchasing a £10, £15 DVD or bluray. At the moment, the price/entertainment ratio is appalling. I buy some stuff, I prefer to buy than pirate, I like a physical collection, but when movies come out more often than not at £15 there's no chance in hell I'd go out and buy them.
It's not like the Sun ever posts anything remotely approaching actual news or something with a factual grounding, so what difference does it make if the homepage redirects to the actual Sun homepage or a spoof? Neither is actually news.
even through glasses, but are we allowed to look at the sun through 3D glasses?
