Landfill Copies of Atari's 'E.T.' End Up On eBay

QuantumLeaper Re:Recipe for Success (107 comments)

Some of the ET ones are going for $600+ range, if you call the cheap, thats up to you. Games back then cost $30 to $50 (rare but not unheard of) back in 1983, I used to buy them NEW in the store, and I still have a couple with the Prices still on them. BTW I have been playing and buying videos games since the 70s.

Will Windows 10 Finally Address OS Decay?

QuantumLeaper Re:Antecdotes != Evidence (577 comments)

How old of an OS are you running? Since my friend who LOVES Macs, hated it when he upgraded the OS, the last time, it went from usable to a snail. He still used the Mac but downgraded the OS to the old version, he now uses a Win8.1 PC to play his games on, it runs a lot faster. And it only a few months newer than the Mac. I believe it the same CPU and similar video card. I had to fix his PC a few months back, his video card died, that's the only reason I know they both have the same CPU, and similar video cards, I told he should upgrade the video card, but he was a cheap skate.

Phoenix Introduces Draft Ordinance To Criminalize Certain Drone Uses

QuantumLeaper Re:well (200 comments)

When did Satellites require an engine to say in Orbit? You need a rocket to put in orbit, but not really to say in orbit. A drone is a flying machine, which require a engine to stay aloft.

1st world country means they are aligned with the US, 2nd World country they are aligned USSR(Russia), 3rd World country they are aligned with neither of them, those are the Politically definitions. Economically there companies are trying to sink the Future of the US because of greed. They would rather have a dollar today instead of 10 in the future.

London Council Dumping Windows For Chromebooks To Save £400,000

QuantumLeaper Biggest saving is... (193 comments)

2300 Chrome machines vs. 4300 XP machines, I wonder what the true saving are. Since the totals doesn't add up, what did they do eliminate 2000 workers and 2000 machines, or are they going to make 2000 workers use pen and paper or am I missing some here?
