Comment Re:The problem is poor developers... (Score 1) 495

I would love to work with you. I am also driven insane by a complete disregard for the NEED for regression/unit testing. I'm also uniquely irked when existing tests which I have written begin to fail and go ignored. I'm not sure if the failure is in the education system (I never formally learned about testing, it just seems obviously invaluable) I think the easiest thing to blame is too many business people in direct management roles who have no concept of software quality.

At least give the original buyer (player) the ability to replay on their original device...

Comment Cell phone companies want this? (Score 1) 196

Maybe I'm in the minority but I was surprised to see all of the posts thinking that the cellular providers would like this. I figured they would prefer to have as many people using (and paying for) their bandwidth as possible I wouldn't have been surprised to hear that the lobbyists were out in full force against this..
