Three-Way Comparison Shows PCs Slaying Consoles In Dragon Age Inquisition
I've missed specs of a "PC" they were comparing it to.
PS4 has 7850-7870-ish GPU which is better than at least half of the PCs connected to Steam have.
Sweden Considers Adding "Sexism" Ratings To Video Games
I hope you won't consider it trolling as I'm being honest, I swear.
In ancient Greece they had gorgeous sculptures (paintings too?) of gods all over the place (and oh god, creating those sculptures was a monumental effort), were they objectifying them?
USSR had pictures/photos/sculptures of Lenin/Stalin/Whoeverisinpower all over the place, was it because they were objectifying them?
North Korean leaders sculptures/paintings all over the place, because they objectify them?
I think not. I'm pretty sure all things above happen(ed) because people were/are WORSHIPING them.
Now tell me why it is different with the beauty of an attractive human body. Why is it objectifying and not worshiping?

Government borrowed lots of money to save fucked up financial system, but what does that have to do with public investment? Public investment does NOT have to be a new debt, mind you.

Android 5.0 'Lollipop' vs. iOS 8: More Similar Than Ever
How long did it take Apple to allow custom keyboards?
Widgets, does Apple (finally) support them?
What about widgets on the lock screen?
Did Apple stop using rectangular icons with rounded corners?
And well, it sure goes both ways:
When will Android ask me about an App trying to access my contact list?
Did Google start always asking for a password when buying/installing things like Apple does?
Denmark Faces a Tricky Transition To 100 Percent Renewable Energy
So we need to quickly respond to demand changes, somehow.
Truth is, that this need exists even if you don't go renewable, even in good old conventional power plants (although you need more of it, with renewables, indeed) and especially if you go nuclear power plants, which are supposed to run at near maximum capacity all the time:.
E.g. Dinorwig Power Station in UK:

Beaglebone Black does not cost 4 times more (anymore?), last time I've checked it was about 2 times more expensive.(about 60 Euro for BB vs 30 Euro for RPI)

'Star Wars: Episode VII' Gets a Name
"Mark Hamill has stated that Lucas told him in 1976, while filming the first film in Tunisia, that four Star Wars trilogies were planned. Lucas suggested Hamill could have a cameo role in Episode IX, which might be filmed in 2011. A Time magazine story in March 1978, quoting Lucas, also contained the assertion there would be 10 further Star Wars films after The Empire Strikes Back. Gary Kurtz was also aware of proposed story elements for Episode VII to IX before 1980."
Russia Takes Down Steve Jobs Memorial After Apple's Tim Cook Comes Out
To elaborate (I'm neither gay, nor gay hater, nor Russian, nor iPhone lover, please spare me and don't try reading between the lines as there is nothing in there, really)
Russia has a law that basically forbids "as Good As You" approach. (that's where word "gay" comes from, to my knowledge)
That is, by claiming being gay is as good as being heterosexual, or that gay sex is as normal as heterosexual sex, you break the law.
The theory of Russian parliament is that such claims are effectively gay propaganda.
Now, Cook not only said that he was gay (which, frankly, could also have been interpreted same way), but also claimed it to be "a gift" from God. This, apparently, breaks the above mentioned law.

China Plans To Build a Domestic Robotics Industry
Stealing (e.g. learning / copying what others did, legally or not) is a great way to develop industry from scratch.
Note that many things they do go far beyond stealing. E.g.:
1) Moon probe returning back to earth
2) High speed trains (this one started with importing technology from all countries with major know how)
3) Longest bridge in the world
4) Biggest dam in the world
My point is, the steal at times, but they are not limited to it.
Denuvo DRM Challenges Game Crackers
Well, no, not really.
It started with George Hotz's dumps, which was a combination of hardware glitching + program running in OtherOS.
If not the OtherOS, it wouldn't even be possible!!!
Before that PS3 system was very obscure, hence next to nothing was happening.
More to it, dumps, once analyzed, revealed epic mistakes in the encryption scheme (they used a static, instead of random number in crypto), which lead to Sony's private keys becoming public which lead to PS3 being hacked wide open.
However I wouldn't count with this happening again. It could well be that current gen consoles won't be hacked even in 10 years.

Witcher 3 (was released on gog.com), Dreamfall released a couple of weeks ago.
How well they'll do remains to be seen, though.
Khrushchev's 1959 Visit To IBM
Actually, no, it wasn't Stalin's.
In Stalin's era USSR was developing faster (actually, like 4+ times faster) than the West. He started with retrograde agricultural country and ended up with a nuclear superpower.
Hitler's economy was insanely good too.
And hell, yeah, we know about the price for both cases, no need to remind.
As far as USSR's economic growth goes, in Khruschev times it was still more than healthy, twice faster than the West.
However , in Brezhnev's era at some point in 70th it simply stopped growing. Let alone that most of the grows was done at the cost of the quality (higher number of lower quality machines). In 1978 Soviet Union didn't grow even according to the official statistics.

Mark Zuckerberg Speaks Mandarin At Tsinghua University In Beijing
She speaks Cantonese.
She has close relatives who speak only Mandarin (and Zuckerberg wanted to communicate with them).
So it makes perfect sense to call her Chinese in this context.
