Not good for everyone's economy in the US by the way. Craftsmanship used to be a sought after trait and those people are out of work.

Short term. What they don't see is those out of work workers are no longer buying cars, or appliances, or most of the consumer products that keeps the economy humming.

China has a long history of selling dangerous products. From poisonous pet food to exploding electronics. When confronted, the Chinese government's response is "what a shame, we'll do something". The "something" is to rename the company and do it all over again.

Why the fuck does China have most favored nation trade status?

Because they've bought off a whole hell of a lot of people, but using cheap Chinese shit is good for the US company's short-term bottom line...which is all today's executives look at because that's what their bonuses and stock options are tied to.

Why restrict the tests to 3G when this is a 4G world (at least in the US) now?

So you have full 4G coverage all over the US?

No, you spend most of your time with 3G connections?.. Maybe that is more relevant then.

Not to me. I probably have a 3:1 LTE/3G ratio, and I live in a rural area and work in a small city.

I enjoy it. It's actually a nice feeling to see real commands (and parameters!) used and even one or two scenarios that don't have barf factors. It's more psychological than computer though. I'd give it 75%/25% psych/comp.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who's hit pause to check out the commands and syntax for realism....

...playing a game for 50 hours and then returning it is much like buying an outfit for a special occasion, wearing it to it, and then returning it.
The sleaze fact is pretty much the same, and the only fact that would mitigate the game playing (and no one has alleged this) is at that point the game then becomes unplayable.

it is "not possible" for there to be misidentification

Oh really. I'm sure Mr. Patzer wouldn't mind telling us his IP address, then? Because in 5 minutes I'd have it look like he was swarming, downloading, and sharing the filthiest copyrighted scat porn videos the internet has to offer.

Obviously, they didn't teach you any history of what happened between 1940 and 1942/3 in your little world: Think American food, American gas, American vehicles, American clothes, American weapons, American planes, even American cigarettes. The Soviet Union wouldn't have lived to regroup to defeat the Germans if it wasn't for the Americans because they had none of the above, only bodies.
