Which is funny considering that back in the day the same game could be released for both the Amiga and the Sinclair Spectrum. And in those days the gaming market where much much smaller than it's today. So no I don't think that the slightly less powerful hardware in the Wii U has anything to do with the missing 3d party games, it's all political, i.e they decided to not support Nintendo for whatever reason.

For example Watch Dogs where ported but never the DLC even though it didn't contain code. Also we had Resident Evil Revelations (so Capcom did port their game engine) but never got Revelations 2 or any of the other RE games that utilized the exact same engine that where already ported.

Been there and done that. We used Netware back in the NT4 days on my first workplace and with great mystery the Netware stuff got slower and slower with each NT4 Service Pack. And they will get away with this again if they begin to target Steam because as you say they are to big to fail, if something does not work well in Linux it's a Linuxproblem but if your application does not work well in Windows then it's your problem. The sad thing is that it's the Microsoft customers that have brought this on themselves.

The bank does not care yes but they have to report every transaction to your national version of the SEC and they are fined quite heavily (they can also loose their banking license) if it's found out that they did not fully report and trace the transaction. So what the bank cares are does not care about is quite irrelevant.

How does your anecdote invalidate his claims? You told the bank where the money came from (even when you claimed that no one cared), they registered it and some one in the back checked that the money actually where sent from the accounts mentioned (i.e from your parents to you) and that this was money that your parents had access to legally.

If you could have just appeared in the bank and threw 100k GBP on the table, refused to disclose where the money came from and they still would be ok with that then you would have had a point, but that is not what happened.

Where? There used to be that all operators offered this but at the moment only Net1 (in Sweden that is) offers unlimited data. Myself I happened to sign an unlimited deal with Telenor when they had it so even though they don't sell it anymore they apparently cannot terminate my contract, which is fortunate since I'm around 300GB per month without doing anything special (no torrents, no servers and so on).
