Comment Servicemembers say "thanks a heap..." (Score 1) 572

Bagram. Carriers. FOBs. Hundreds of thousands of American Servicemembers who are forward deployed worldwide do not have and are not allowed to have personal electronics (iPads, PS3s, XBoxs, and the like) linked to the available network. They're barely able to check e-mail or Facebook, much less get Steam or XBox Live to reach out to their respective servers for authentication. And guess what? These 18-25 year old folks with discretionary income are NOT going to spend it on games the cannot play because of always-connected DRM requirements. Think with your wallets, developers and publishing houses. Rule number one of business: Never make it hard for the customer to give you his money. You are making it hard. That makes you dumb.
