Microsoft Kills Xbox One Phone-Home DRM

Actually this is more of a case of a murderer being scared off by the angry mob.

Did the murderer cease desiring to murder you? No.
So what do you think is going to happen when the murderer returns while the angry mob is no longer around or are distracted?

You should trust Microsoft in the same way that you'd trust a serial-rapist to not violently rape you.
In other words, NOT AT ALL.
Microsoft has more than distinctly declared it's intent to ILLEGALLY SPY ON YOU (in criminal violation of the Federal Espionage Acts).
Microsoft has also declared that they intend for yourself and your children to become their slaves.

And you trust the angry mob to always be around to save your butt?
The best lasting answer is to demand that Microsoft's CORPORATE CHARTER is permanently revoked and all executives in Microsoft are legally excluded from ever seeking employment in any similar field of employment.

Hitchhiker's Movie is Bad, says Adams Biographer

matrix29 Re:After seeing the commercials... (925 comments)

I read the Starship Troopers book and it wasn't too bad a movie.

Granted it skipped over the political aspects, self-control aspect, and majority of the military function.

I would say that Starship Troopers adapted about 30% of the book, but made about 70% of the stuff up while keeping the spirit of the books. The Starship Troopers military was more along the lines of the traditional marines with additions of Japanese warfare. Granted a straight adaptation would have been plodding in nature, but a much better space-military movie. A better concept would to re-adapt it later as a mini-series of about 20 episodes each an hour long or 10 episodes lasting 2 hours each. On the upside, since Starship Troopers was a fairly workable translation it now has the option of a more faithful adaptation available.

The current HITCHHIKERS adaptation has lots of eye-candy, but little depth.
