When I was in high school, I was broke, yet I still found it possible to buy records (and then in college, CDs).
Then you weren't broke where you.
Broke is when you have to decide whether to eat or pay rent.
(Yeah I know, you can be broker still and not have any money for either)
Except that he's correct. More people do get paid to develop software that fits the definition of Free Software. I believe that's always been the case.
Every person who works in the IT shop of some company churning out custom solutions for that company is working on Free Software.
Can you give any facts that support this claim?
I disagree - and so would market figures. The average age of gamers is rising every year, and now that there are proportionately less youngsters playing games so there is less need for gamers to use games to vent their unconscious rage against their sense of powerlessneness.
I don't dispute that gamers are getting older. I'll be 40 in a couple of weeks. But I do think you are talking out of your a** when you claim older gamers have less need of killing sprites to let off some steam than younger people.
It's not like we have less things to be frustrated about (kids (my own), mortage, pension, prostate, hair loss, kids (on lawn), PHB, dog with fleas, price of gas....)
You're a shitty troll. That's why no one is replying.
Except you then...
A teenage girl in central India killed herself after being traumatised by media reports that a 'Big Bang' experiment in Europe could bring about the end of the world, her father said. The 16-year old girl from the state of Madhya Pradesh drank pesticide and was rushed to the hospital but later died, police said.
So sad that the medias desire to sell a few more copies/adspots makes them spread this kind of fud.
I really think the medias has gone downhill ethically, but perhaps it's always been this bad and I'm only delusional."
Filed under: Cellphonesbizarre -- bizarre -- handsets in our day, but this one is just too darn cute to call weird. The conceptual Kuma Phone was recently shown off in Japan by Willcom, and according to local reports, the audience in attendance absolutely adored it. The GSM teddy bear, er, mobile can hold up to four speed dial numbers, boasts a built-in vibration function and allows users to answer / terminate calls by "pressing the tail." An accompanying pamphlet suggested that it would run around $500 should it ever hit mass production, which leads us to wonder if they plan on using Boyds / Vermont Teddies or something.
