How To Avoid a Scramble For the Moon and Its Resources

madhi19 Re:Is it really an issue (365 comments)

Cheap satellites and space probes. A big substantial part of the cost of a satellite is the rocket you need to put it in orbit from earth. If you can mine resources from the moon you use those resource to build and launch satellites from the moon low gravity.

Sony Issues Detailed PS4 FAQ Ahead of Launch

madhi19 Re:No media server support upsets me (312 comments)

Yeah it mostly about selling media. Sony did not care that we had a media server on the ps3 when they did not have a video store. I be piss if just about every device in my house did not already support it anyway. The HDTV in my living room to my tablet both have it the laptop and the gaming rig are both running XBMC and if I wanted to have a cheap dongle I could get one for a few bucks.

Bloomberg is part of the establishment hell at 31B he IS the establishment and the establishment hate nothing more than disruptive innovation. The existing pecking order depend entirely on the continuation of the satus quo. Bloomberg might not own any hotel but I guarantee he heard bitching from his "friends" who own them.

AMD Intentionally Added Artificial Limitations To Their HDMI Adapters

madhi19 Re:Why? (256 comments)

It even worse I don't think they even sell the damn thing separately. Apple at least has a business model for doing that kind of shit. It a scumbag model but at least they got one. AMD just complicated their adapter that they don't even sell you get it with the cards!

Red Cross Wants Consequences For Video-Game Mayhem

madhi19 War crime, what war crime? (288 comments)

I never or rarelly see a shooter that allow you to even commit any war crime. You can't kill/torture prisoners since military shooters never let the other side surrender you can't kill or torture civillian and children since they don't exist in 99.999% of all military shooters. The only game that I can think of that all about commiting wholescale genocide is DEFCON. This is the kind of crap that peoples who don't really know the gaming scene will come up with.
