    Demo Available For Solar Warden

    So lemme get this straight, the ex-lead on a "game" that's been in dev for years and will likely never actually exist, is looking to release a new game for like 1.4% the cost of the last "game" he worked on? That's hilarious.

    Ajit Pai Openly Mocks Net Neutrality Protesters with Dumb New Video

    You clearly don't know any severely disabled people. To some people, who can do little now but move their eyes in order to control a computer, the internet amounts to what they have left of their entire life. I guarantee you that if they could, they would do what you describe but they can't. But...

    Netflix Stole My VHS Cassette Photos for Its Stranger Things Boxed Set

    It's truly disturbing to me how many people seem to think it's perfectly justifiable for companies whose profits are measured in hundreds of millions of dollars to fuck over an individual... *I will clarify: It doesn't matter if this guy has a leg to stand on or not, I see people saying "who...

    How Loot Boxes Led to Never-Ending Games (And Always-Paying Players)

    Pretty sure they only made it look like they "cut the cost". They also reduced the rate of credit accrual such that the "reduced cost" of the unlocks is effectively an illusion.

    EA’s Defense of Star Wars: Battlefront II is Now Reddit’s Most Downvoted Comment

    Likely "awarded" by EA's own alt-accounts. Also, I now have the answer to my original question about this shit, lol.

    First Batch of iPhone Xs Is Reportedly Just 46,500 Units

    As expected, really. The iPhone X is not the "real" product. The iPhone 8 is, and that's not working out well for them since there is little to differentiate it from the -now somewhat cheaper and readily available- iPhone 7.

    Mandatory Windows 10 Update Is Causing Machines to BSOD

    This is revelatory for me. I was not aware of the existence of this branch of Windows 10. Thank you, seriously. (y)

    Mandatory Windows 10 Update Is Causing Machines to BSOD

    All of you guys who are so blasé, like "oh, I just disable updates" feel free to fill in the rest of us on how this simple thing you're doing which somehow works better than literally isolating windows 10 "enterprise" machines from communicating to sets of DNS records in excess of 20k entries...

    Mandatory Windows 10 Update Is Causing Machines to BSOD

    That is not effective. I have way more preventive measures in place. My home machine doesn't even talk to windows update directly. It only gets updates from WSUS in my cluster. Yet gee whiz, what's this? "Try the Facebook app, it's already on your machine!" "What the fuck?" MS has gone way...

    Mandatory Windows 10 Update Is Causing Machines to BSOD

    Nice of the "new" version to also begin silently installing shit like the Facebook app and "Photos Add-on" on top of reinstalling literally all of the stupid shit I de-provisioned using PowerShell. Oh, and silently un-installing f.lux as part of the update. I presume it did this to help push me...

    Stars Wars Battlefront 2 Trailer with Details

    Now I just wonder how Electronic Assholes will fuck it up and make it a shit-show unworthy of purchase.
