corrupt politicians wrecking the economy? Not so much.

Clearly you haven't paying attention for the last 5 years.

Dodgy mortgages in America packaged up in fancy financial instruments and then sold as low risk, ended up causing near collapse of the banking system, resulting in massive borrowing and pushing Europe into recession. Corrupt American politicians refusing to regulate the financial industry properly are the cause.

And google Greece Cyprus Debt.

French Police End Missing Persons Searches, Suggest Using Facebook 95

itwbennett writes "According to an announcement on a French government website, police have stopped current searches for missing adults and will not accept new search requests. 'Such 'searches in the interests of the family' were conducted under an administrative procedure almost a century old, introduced to help families separated during the upheavals of World War I to find missing relatives,' according to the French Ministry of the Interior. In a letter to police chiefs announcing the changes, the Ministry advised them to instead 'direct people towards social networks on the Internet, which offer interesting possibilities.'"

Because some people spend all day adding their commentary to the videos and they wish to be paid for that commentary. I think that's fair. They paid for the game, and the gamer videos double up as advertisements.

I don't buy games without checking out the game-play on youtube first (actual game-play, not trailers) and the commentary is a good indicator of whether the game is enjoyable.
