top H-1B Cap Reached Today; Didn't Get In? Too Bad
Apparently they are qualified enough to do the job. There needs to be enough competition for the jobs, yet discourage obvious abuses. Setting a reasonable minimum wage would go a long way to fix that. But unfortunately, that idea is anathema in the US. Far too greedy on all sides of the line.

top Senator Feinstein: We Need Video Game Control
I agree. We DO need more video game control. We need to be able to stop shitty games being made. Companies that make shit games, EA I am looking at you, that use draconian DRM, UBI....again...., and just generally bring the industry into disrepute, all need to be punished. Severely.

top Mozilla Contemplating Five Week Release Cycle
They are trying to keep up with the Jones'. Chrome version number went from like 1 to 14 in a matter of what.... 2 years? And because it is Google, people trumpeted this saying, "Look, Google is introducing new stuff all the time! Wow!" when in reality probably 85% of what they released would have been a point update, or an increment update under the original FF scheme. But Google realised that people like big numbers and the APPEARANCE of progress.
So, in sum, faster release cycles because users are dumb.
top Verizon Makes It Easy To Go Over Your Data Cap
So, people are expected to know what they sign up for and be responsible for it. I fail to see the news, other than a company is going to show just how many stupid people there are in the nation, and ones that do not take responsibility for themselves or their habits.
top Ubisoft Scales Back
<quote><p>Sadly they don't care what we think - if we pirate or don't pirate it doesn't matter as they will call you a pirate anyway.</p><p>A lost sale = pirate, no it can't possibly be that the game is shit so no-one bought it.... or the DRM is shit so no-one bought it.</p><p>As for those who are pissed off about "From Dust" having shit DRM - I have a simple rule for avoiding DRM: Does the box have a Ubisoft logo? Don't buy it.</p></quote>
Is the game available from GOG.com? Or is it freeware? Avoid it as it will have some form of DRM on it. What? That limits you and ISN'T what you do? Well now, so there are some DRMs that you are fine with....either that or you are a moron prone to hyperbole.
top Pricing: Apple Defies Australian Government
Wrong. I can buy in the US and get it shipped here and still save anywhere from 10-30%.
go back and try again. The reason they charge it is because they CAN charge it. It is called the Apple tax on top of the Better Beaches'n'beer tax.
top ISPs Will Now Be Copyright Cops
That is part of the catch though isn't it. They don't necessarily have to prove you guilty like they would in a court situation. Instead, now you have to take them to court and prove your innocence. And all so you can use what may be the only internet connection available to you. They couldn't win with their previous strategy, so they move onto plan B. And part of plan B is that a privately owned and run entity does not have to do business with you should they choose not to. See where this goes?

top Firefox Is Going 64-Bit: What You Need To Know
Funny.... my FF with no matter how many tabs never goes over 500 meg and usually stays around the 300 meg mark (usually have atleast 15 tabs open). I swear those who say memory leaks memory leak memory leaks must be using dodgy add-on and using a 30 year old PC with Bill Gate's recommended max memory.

But it is apple. The fanboi's will buy it as will those who like shinies. Why do you think they can afford to release a new iphone every what... 6 months or so? People want the latest 'bling' and don't care. Marketing strategy working fine.
top Landmark Steps Forward For Australia's NBN
Price will come down much like they did for ADSL. It wasn't that long ago that 100GB was the upper limit for ADSL here in Oz. Now we have ISP's offering terrabyte plans. The problem as I see it will be reaching critical mass which will be the main price dropper. If the libs get in this won't happen. Let us hope for more contracts that are really expensive to renege on.
top Women Remain the Ignored Audience In Gaming
But the gaming population consists of 50% of them. Obviously there is something they like in these 'boy' games. Or does the group who commissioned/produced the report want gaming to be 75% girls and 25% boys, screaming feminine slogans like those who believe sexism is the reason why women don't get as many top jobs and not their lifestyle choices?
Studies like this piss me the fuck off. morons.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii To Include Official "Cheat"
I remember that level in MoH. Was good fun. Frustrating for about an hour until you get it.
Whilst I don't think that people should cheat, or look up strategy guides, in some games, the developers do not do a good enough job to let you know whats required to move on. In a GOOD game, its not needed. In a mediocre game, it can be.
