"O + O" - A gaming network?

My bet on the third icon (from the page);

The creative energy of Steam users takes shape in the Workshop - your one-stop shop for the best add-ons available. Here you can create, discover, and download a nearly endless supply of top-quality user-created content.

Now Linux users can experience all the heartache and frustration that goes with Steam! Mysteriously vanishing content, random lock-outs, and a customer service strategy apparently developed by EA. I can't wait! [/snark]

Soon, we'll be adding you to our design process, so that you can help us shape the future of Steam.

So maybe they will listen to customer's input.

Apple Sued For Dividing Final Season of Breaking Bad Into Two On iTunes 458

An anonymous reader writes "Last night's episode of Breaking Bad was one of the most intense in series history, but for those who haven't seen it yet, don't worry, I won't be putting out any spoilers. You see, today's Breaking Bad news has nothing to do with Walter White's slow transformation into Scarface, but rather with a legal suit filed against Apple by a Breaking Bad fan. In a lawsuit that many saw coming, an Ohio man named Noam Lazebnik recently filed a class action suit against Apple upon finding out that the $22.99 he forked over for a 'Season Pass' of Breaking Bad was only good for the first 8 episodes of the show's final season."

(just the opposite when you think of drones)

It's hard to call remote controlled aircraft aka drones "robots", which are autonomous machines capable of making decisions without human intervention.

But that's also the reason why the self-driving robot cars seem to be coming true, with vehicles similar to Google's driverless car.

I wouldn't necessarily agree with you, look at google maps which have improved in quality, But this happened through a dedicated commitment to the project.

But in the other hand I have noticed that there are google "quality control" issues which I have experienced. A few of the patents in Google Patents have bad and unreadable pages (especially with the drawings) or are scanned crooked as an example.

I suspect that the wireless network is oversubscribed where you have people jamming each other (and the router) to get into a local router. This can be a problem with any radio technology when you have too many users on a channel. And google probably does not make money on this project and hence allocate resources for other things.

But this is a larger issue with WiFi networks in general. People think it's an infinite resource and can replace traditional wires everywhere. I assure you, it is not and can not.

Yes, then we have a large number of $500/hr attorneys that no one can afford, except for the wealthiest among us and large corporations. Making the problem worse.

As I said, one thing that would help is getting the ABA stranglehold of the two day hazing exercise known as the bar exam. I know that most in the legal profession (and yourself) will hate this, but their emperor has no clothes.
