Family Guy is being broadcasted in Spain too, dubbed: www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfQlZXfy1Wo

But yes, the market should open. There's a lot of following of shows through Internet. So much, in fact, that now Flashforward is being broadcasted here one week after USA, quite a feat if you take into account that it's dubbed (lots of dubbing here).

Wrong, he may be like me, that I -mostly- only seed while downloading, simply because I tend to have all the things I have downloaded still there. So I'm seeding my old downloads while getting the new ones.

Yeah, from time to time I try to seed properly, but I don't have a 24/7 server at home (and have no plan to set one).

That's exactly one of the problems with games nowadays. I want to play an RPG being a middle age man with experience, not a youngster who cannot think or control his hormones.

I want to choose over different moral dilemmas and face the consequences. A game where I could relate to the main character and not wanting to strangle him/her because their inept social or observational skills.

I want a game for adults, not an adult's game (read: boobies).


Submission + - China copies iPhone; makes it even better (popsci.com)

An anonymous reader writes: China duplicates a lot of well know products; now they are duplicating the iPhone. Yet apparently they are making it better. From the article "The miniOne looked just like Apple's iPhone, down to the slick no-button interface. But it was more. It ran popular mobile software that the iPhone wouldn't. It worked with nearly every worldwide cellphone carrier, not just AT&T, and not only in the U.S. It promised to cost half as much as the iPhone and be available to 10 times as many consumers." The cloned iPhone uses a Linux-based system. "The cloners hire a team of between 20 and 40 engineers to begin decoding the circuit boards. At the same time, coders start to develop an operating system for the phone with a similar feature set. (The typical cloner either uses off-the-shelf code, writes something entirely new, or modifies a publicly available Linux-based system.) "
