Make a Date With Fraud

Haoie Re:Scammers always looking for a target (61 comments)

1/70? Ouch.

Call it hindsight but maybe you should've been more selective in who to contact. You may have been writing to all the wrong people who have nothing in common with you.

Good luck for the future.

iPad Fever Is Officially Cooling

Haoie Re:Original iPads Work Well ... (386 comments)

I'm sure they'd love it if all their products only worked for X length of time - then upgrade time!

That must be the goal of every company pushing new goods.

Are DVDs Inconvenient On Purpose?

Haoie Re:No high speed Internet? (490 comments)

Fast internet isn't available everywhere [and certainly not here affordably in NZ].

The slow and expensive internet is probably one of the big reasons why streaming content is still slow on the uptake here.

Blockbuster To Close Remaining US Locations

Haoie That's sad (419 comments)

I always find it difficult to understand the mentality of those cheering and saying good riddance that a long time business [even former giants of the industry] has failed.

Hey, it could be your workplace next.

Toronto Family Bans All Technology In Their Home Made After 1986

Haoie Re:Like with everything else, moderation (534 comments)

That's very true - But this really is the extreme end of things, at least in a modern first world country.

Many developing parts of the world have varying degrees of technology limited [and almost always not by choice but by circumstance].

Futurama Cancelled (Again)

Haoie Re:Good news everyone! (390 comments)

I'm going to have to disagree. I thought they were quite good, not excellent but still fine examples of animated comedy.

Especially Bender's Big Score.

Explosions at the Boston Marathon

Haoie Re:On TV now (1105 comments)

China Reviewing Game Consoles Ban

Haoie Re:PC games (67 comments)

Everyone likes to complain about Japanese games not getting exported [no export for you!].

But there are probably countless of Chinese games - of varying quality - not being localised elsewhere.

The Problem With Internet Dating's Frictionless Market

Haoie Re:Settle? Bad analogy (453 comments)

Most art you just observe at a distance, not interact with.

If you just observed women, you'd be quite the stalker!

Haoie Re:Age Census in Disguise (330 comments)

Better to have a "what year did you first own a cellphone"?

Tolkien Estate Sues Over Lord of the Rings Slot Machines

Haoie Re:Good (211 comments)

I'm not against gambling per se, but slots are the most house friendly form of gambling that can possibly exist. Which is why casino space is more slot space now more than ever.
