Comment Re:Was it EA..... (Score 1) 386

DRM is totally an issue on Consoles, especially with EA's grudge against GameStop. Want to take your copy of Madden/FIFA/NHL/NBA/Basketweaving 2013 to your friends house to play during a party AND play online? Not gonna happen unless you want to scrounge up the 10 bucks to get a new online pass code for each friend's console.

Not only are there security ramifications of opening your network like that; but there are also legal ramifications as well. Do I really want to be sued or have my house raided by the police/FBI because my jackass neighbor or some random person decided to use torrent or look at subversive material on my connection? No.

Yep. Not to mention that Government IT is heavily limited by bureaucratic bullshit. The contractor I currently work for is barred from using Wi-Fi on our laptops with the government image on it (they're disabled in the BIOS). But we're for some stupid reason allowed to use cellular air data cards. It really fucks up our employees who must connect in a hotel since most hotels are dropping the Ethernet connection and going pure wireless.
