No, things haven't changed much. The DS and 3DS also have very easy methods of piracy, and that didn't stop either of them from absolutely dominating the handheld market.

I'm pretty sure GP's "piracy dooms systems to obscurity" meme is borne of the oversimplified copypasta about the failure of the Dreamcast.

He didn't say "everything worthwhile revolves around convenience", you condescending dick. He merely said when it comes to movies, it's far more convenient to stream it than keep a physical disc and player.

He may be off base when saying older people don't understand that, because the real reason might be "noooo I like the way I've always done it and I fear change." Either way, who cares? Young people buy more movies anyway.

The question isn't "how is Uber making money at that low a price" but "Hey wtf why is this shitty shuttle costing me $12?!?!?"

Tourists line up at Penn Station for taxis for 15 or 20 minutes sometimes, for the privilege of paying more. They just don't know that there are 50 Uber drivers in the neighborhood. Sure, everyone here knows what Uber is and how to use it. You think the whole population is that knowledgeable?

Weird, they seem like a transportation company to me - every time I use their app, I've been successfully transported somewhere.

As for the operating conditions, I'm all for it. Eventually the competitors and their payoffs.... erm, FEES.... to the local governments will go away. I don't see the problem.

I'm not a lawyer in America, but it sounds like you're talking about American law, in which case, you would be wildly off-topic as this article is about Prime Video's presence in other countries. But why let something stupid like staying on-topic get in the way of you shoehorning in your pet peeve?

Modded "Interesting"? Gimmie a break.

Better check on your "rape Melania" source. Turns out some wag Photoshopped a couple of pictures to make it look like someone brought a sign that said that to an anti-Trump protest. But okay, you keep believing whatever you see on the internets without doing a 5-second google search.

An average of the polls in 538's model not only predicted the results of the last two elections, it predicted the outcomes in 49 of 50 (2008) and 50 of 50 (2012) states correctly. When your "gut feeling poll" reaches an accuracy level of 99%, call me. Until then, shut up with your paranoid "polls are bullshit" wishful thinking. This is a site that generally attracts people that understand math. You may be looking for's comment section.
