Mt. Gox Shuts Down: Collapse Should Come As No Surprise
no paper trail, no hope
You lost your fait assets. Anonymity is a double edged sword, you just felt the bad edge blow.
Do some research. Fiat is government issued currency and crypto currencies are not really all that anonymous. All transactions can be followed on the chain. The only trick is matching the wallet with a real person but that isn't impossible.
Streaming and Cord-Cutting Take a Toll On the Pay-TV Industry
I don't know where everyone else lives, but I have yet to find a free wireless or wired streaming video capable Internet connection anywhere in the place I live. I use Netflix and Hulu but I still pay a communication utility for Internet access, so while I am not paying that same provider for cable content, it still is not free. All I have done is separate the data access utility from the content provider. Cord cutting is really a misnomer, few (if any) are truly cutting the cord, they just choose to consume content as Internet data rather than TV signal.
I think the term still applies. I bet most people are like me and already pay for internet and additionally pay for cable/satellite so they are cutting one of those cords. Just because you cut one cord doesn't mean you are cutting all cords.
Study Explains Why Lunar Craters Are Bigger On the Near Side
The percentage difference in thickness is enough to influence gravity at that distance to cause that many more strikes on that side? I call bs.
I think its roughly the same number of strikes but thiner crust means a bigger crater when they hit.
Paul Thurrot Predicts November Debut, $500 Tag For Xbox 720
Do your math again. Using your numbers for a 360, if XBox Live is normally $5/mo, that's $120 for 2 years. Total cost of a 360 unsubsidized would be 120 + 299, or $419. A subsidized one would be $240 for two years + 99 = $339. So why choose an unsubsidized one if you're getting Live anyways?
For a 720, the numbers are similar, if they are correct as reported by the summary. $499 + 120 = $619 or 299 + 240 = $539.
Only question is - if you choose a subsidized model - what is the cost of XBox Live Gold after the two years are up? Is it 5, or 10?
This is not really related to the article but these numbers are off. I pre-pay for a year of Xbox live for $35 dollars a year so just buying it all outright is $369 (299 + 70). Subsidized its $99 but $15 a month for two years for a total of $459 so it costs $90 to finance it.
