ArcadeMan Re:Why Apple? (145 comments)

It seems I should at least read the summary before commenting. Replace Foxconn with Pegatron in my comment above, but the argument still stands.

Investigation: Apple Failing To Protect Chinese Factory Workers

ArcadeMan Why Apple? (145 comments)

Why is it Apple's fault or Apple's problem? First of all these are Foxconn workers. Secondly Foxconn manufactures hardware for a lot of companies, not just Apple.

ArcadeMan Re:Why I got a Pebble (193 comments)

I'm still using an old iPhone 3GS with iOS6 and it does that too, so I'm not sure what smartphone Enry is talking about. It must be from the paleolithic era.

To Fight Currency Mismatches, Steam Adding Region Locking to PC Games

ArcadeMan Re:Why Steam? Why? (150 comments)

Let's say the game costs 10 times less in Russia. You ask Russian friend to buy it for you but you send him twice the amount required. That means you both got the game for 1/5th of the U.S.A. price. The game creators and Steam lose.

Let's say Steam increases the price in Russia so that it matches the U.S. dollar value. Your Russian friend can no longer afford games. Your friend, the game creators and Steam lose.

In fact Webster should place a picture of Sony and the Interview poster next to the dictionary entry for "disaster".
