Submission + - Police violently drag man from United plane after reportedly overbooked flight (

Mr.Intel writes: On Sunday, a United Airlines passenger was pulled from his plane seat and dragged off the aircraft — because the airline had overbooked the flight. Several passengers captured the scene and the disturbing footage appears to show that the man was left bleeding from the mouth after his face was smashed against an arm rest during the scuffle. Security are seen wrenching the man from his seat and then dragging him down the aisle and off the plane.

United Airlines gave us this response:

“Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville was overbooked. After our team looked for volunteers, one customer refused to leave the aircraft voluntarily and law enforcement was asked to come to the gate. We apologize for the overbook situation.”

Not only that, but it does not affect most phones with lollipop on it. It only works on phones that allow copy and paste from the emergency dialer (most do not) only then is it vulnerable.

I'm guessing that since I've set mine up so that the phone needs to be unlocked to access the camera, then I should be safe as well.

The only thing that requires Steam to still be around is the multiplayer system Steamworks.

In order to play *any* game bought from Steam, the Steam client must be running and have an internet connection.

That's not true! I have several games on Steam that will run just fine on it's own (I can even copy them to my laptop without Steam installed and they work there too).
Not all the games on steam use Steamworks or any sort of DRM...
Kerbal Space Program is one example.
