Amazon Releases iPhone Kindle Software

Devir Re:Text-to-speech will squash audio books (232 comments)

What the writer's guild don't understand is that Audio books are just too damn expensive. The Twilight set is offered for as much as $200. Other set's are around $100. so after buying book and audio set, you're deep in the hole.

It is their pricing model that is pushing them out of the business, not the fact there is a text to speech feature on kindle, PDF blah blah. waah.

Do Video Games Cost Too Much?

Devir Re:Yes (763 comments)

I've been writing about the entertainment industry gouging us consumers for a while now. It is good to see an exec bring proof to theory.

Early Killzone 2 Reviews Looking Good

Devir Re:LOL! Idiot Who Reads Beyond3d.com (140 comments)

Someone sounds a little jealous that there are people more intelligent than you out there. By your post, a mollusk has better chances of more intelligent conversation.

Early Killzone 2 Reviews Looking Good

Devir Re:I have a copy and it just rocks!!! (140 comments)

At least someone has some enthusiasm albeit a little over the top.

I've been dying for a good FPS to come out for the PS3 for a while now. (haven't played any of the Resistance games). MSG4 is still my top PS3 game to date. Now i want more "game" less "movie".

I may be inclined to finally pay $60 for a new release in a very long while. It sucks, I was going to get another game the name of which I can't remember.

This slashdot post is just too full of errors it never should have been posted in the first place.
Wolf, boy, cry or something on that line.

Battlestar Galactica's Last Days

Devir Re:Tackle? (799 comments)

You sound very bitter and full of hate and resentment towards yourself, family and wife.

I've harbored 30 years of resentment towards my mother, rarely called her and told her those things. Finally I put those petty feelings aside realizing that my mother did the best job she was capable of doing working as a single mom pulling herself up the ranks of a company to put a little exta food on the table and break away from our "white trash" upbringing to live a better life.

I feel better pushing aside bitter resentment feelings.

You can date the younger, more attractive girl, just don't let your wife know. Better yet convince her that polygamy is good for the man and helps him live longer as mentioned in an earlier slashdot article. "But honey, I don't want you to live longer"

Leaked Star Wars Battlefront III Footage

Devir Re:Best ever? (33 comments)

I played SWBFII and disliked the game quite a bit. Republic Commando which came out around the same time was far superior in all aspects.
