Ubisoft Working On a New Anti-Piracy Tool
The two Ubisoft games I've played recently (Assassins Creed and Prince of Persia) were both beautiful to look at but incredibly repetitive and not all that fun to play after an hour or so. Since then, on more than one occasion I've seen an awesome trailer that made me think "damn I need to go get that game"...until the Ubisoft logo comes up and I think "nevermind...there are better things to spend my $60 on"...I imagine that has more to do with their sales lag than piracy does...it's not like piracy rates have suddenly shot through the roof.
HP May Be Developing Its Own Version of Linux
It would be nice if more companies would spend their resources improving linux projects as a whole rather than trying to roll their own distributions. I see HP spending a lot of time reinventing several wheels here when their developers' time could be put to much better use in the community.
