I get max 200kb/s on a good day over ADSL 2 in the center of a large suburb in one of our capital cities. No NBN scheduled at all for the next 3 years.

Good times. (sarcasm)

Torrenting Game Of Thrones Doesn't Make You Entitled

Well they are never going to get other studios content, it's that simple. SO never expect to see a whole lot of "premium" content on Netflix.

Of course not, they can kick their peasant customers instead. That is a whole lot easier.

1995 Microsoft wants to hire you. Oh wait, its 2016, you're fired. Google made a multi-billion dollar industry out of open source.

The thing to remember here is: ITS FUCKING LEGAL TO IMPORT A CAR...Geoblocking should most certainly be made illegal. The moment this occurs, goodbye piracy like what happened to the music industry. The writting is on the wall.

No, "cars" aka "movies" are not available from only one supplier. GoT is the Ferrari of the TV world.

Except I can only "lease" it from a single dirty used car sales-man and the one you will get won't actually drive.

Piracy will always exist when there is reason.

It actually is, open source has proven this. So you can eat your hat.

If netflix had a premium "option" I'd buy it.

If HBO was more competitive they would get a whole lot more sales which would be significantly more profit overall.

But hey I'm all for pricing content out of everyone's reach. That way we all stop watching TV and do something productive. This excludes paying gatekeepers for generating content monopolies.

Self-Driving F1 Racecar Robots Are Coming In 2016

Money has nothing to do with innovation. People innovate, money doesn't innovate.

Sure you can buy IP but that's a short term gain for a huge cost better invested in the right people. Not to mention that it can be easily fixed with a spending cap per team like most other sports.

If you skip through the bullshit, you find out that it's the same damn car for every contestant. The only thing attracting me to the race was the chance of reaaal unlimited race vehicle innovation. Engineering marvel! Team X has the better top speed while Team Y has the better AI and gains back ground through the corners....GAH

Valve Found Guilty Of Breaching Australian Consumer Law

Mar 29, 2016, 3:16pm

Well then, if it worked for you, it must be 100% OK then....

Pro-tip: You're not the center of the universe.

My personal experience is quite the opposite. I contact Valve for a refund of a product for which was not "sold as advertised" in steam. The game pre-sold with coop and when it was delivered, it did not have coop. My request was rejected, to quote valve; they do not refund sales.

Is The Video Games Industry On The Verge Of A Crash?

Mar 14, 2013, 2:05pm

I have found more games enjoyable of late than ever.

1. Farcry 3
2. Tomb Raider
3. StarCraft Zerg expansion (absolutely enjoying it at the moment)

Very happy of late.

However my hate list:
1. Diablo 3 (for so many reasons)
2. SimCity (may change once stabilised, enjoyable game, terrible experience)
3. BLOPS and co (should be $40 expansion packs, not $100 games)

Point is games are more than the graphics these days, we need story and a complete experience. After all, it is an entertainment industry.

Why People Aren't Picking Up Some Of This Year's Games

" but when you wield their tattoo-based magical powers then true greatness appears"

"There’s a term for it. It’s “Noble Savage”. And it also falls under the remit of the “Magical Negro”. "

What a load of crap. The writer shall now be know as spin jockey. Well done, you just twisted the facts so hard you believed yourself. If he wrote for money, I would not buy the dribble.

The tattoo is a symbol of achievements, nothing about race.
