China Pushes Real Name System For Online Games

Internet Sales Tax Gets a New Champion
Bookstore owners have to pay sales tax.
Amazon doesn't have to.
End result: said store owner goes bankrupt because Amazon has a competitive advantage because of tax differences. More unemployment and less tax-income for the state because of less sales-tax income AND because less people have a job.
So actually this means a smaller amount of people have to cough up the taxes the state needs, while if you have regional businesses, all that is smeared out over more people.
This is just plugging a loophole.

Do Gamers Want Simpler Games?
If I get a game, I really want to give it a chance.
But the majority of games are just real bad.

Of course even bad games have their followers that insist on playing it till the end.
Mississippi Passes Law To Ban Traffic Light Cameras
I'm from the Netherlands. Although heavily crowded we have about the safest roads in the world (together with Norway and England). This is not because the Dutch are such good drivers, but the chances for being caught speeding or driving red lights are very high.
If it would all stop and instead prevent all murders and other similar unnatural deaths in our country, we wouldn't save the amount of lives as are being saved by being strict about traffic.
So in my opinion the measures against speeding are good and I can't understand why they would get taken away.
(On the other hand: private parties getting a cut from the fines? Only in Amerika)
