'This Is Your Second and Final Notice' Robocallers Revealed

eudas Re:FFS (235 comments)

Not to Godwin the thread or anything, but "I was just following orders" didn't work well as a defense at the Nuremberg trials. Just sayin'.

Rockstar Creates 'Cheaters Pool' For Game Hackers

eudas Re:Interesting (228 comments)

"There'd better be some sort of concrete proof"

Game companies don't provide ban evidence to end-users, because cheaters always request it so they can improve their cheat progs so that their next account can avoid the banhammer.

White House Responds To SOPA, PIPA, and OPEN

eudas bullies (517 comments)

Simply coming back with "ok, we get the message - you don't like SOPA. But i don't hear you jackoffs coming up with any better ideas, do I?" is bully psychology. it is a sorry attempt to rephrase the conversation as "well, do you prefer A or B?"

but that's not the issue. the issue is, "does this problem need to be solved at all?"

because if we simply accept the choice between horrible implementation that infringes on our rights A and horrible implementation that infringes on our rights B, we're not actually thinking about all of the possibilities. maybe piracy, ultimately, is better for the public than either choice A or choice B.

just a thought.

UK Police Test 'Temporarily Blinding' LASER

eudas seems like a really bad idea (398 comments)

Isn't the use of lasers for blinding enemy personnel against the Geneva Convention? What makes it sound like a good idea for use on your own Citizens if you can't use it against enemy infantry? Not to mention the lawsuits resulting from failures that wind up permanently blinding people.

What a bad idea.

Judge Makes Divorcing Couple Swap Facebook Passwords

eudas Re:divorce (332 comments)

1) You should probably delete your profile ahead of time, then.
2) I'm pretty sure that if you took the action to "delete your profile" with such a short turnaround time, then the spouse's login to your FB account would undo the "delete" action, anyway. Logging in to a FB account during the "deletion waiting period" cancels the deletion.

Favorite Sony Gaffe?

eudas Re:PS3 backwards compatibility (329 comments)

i think the only reason ps2 backwards compatability was included in the ps3 was to help drive adoption rate for the ps3. as ps3 adoption went up, then ps2 backwards compatability was phased out, until it was gone and the ps3 stood on its own.

it's not like sony really wants you to have a single device to play all their games on - they just wanted the new item to have a better sales ratio until a critical mass of buyers had been achieved.

first you give them generous caps.

Retailers Dread Phone-Wielding Shoppers

eudas Re:So, the system works? (725 comments)

You know, I had a salesperson at Best Buy try to charge me a higher price than what was marked on an item as well, until I spoke up and made them correct it. I wonder if this is a standard practice at Best Buy now...
