Please explain how Rovio (creators of Angry Birds) had $106 million in revenue in 2011, then.

First iOS, Now Mac OS X In-App Purchases Hacked

That sure was a long way to go to just say "I'm being pedantic."

First iOS, Now Mac OS X In-App Purchases Hacked

mattgoldey Re:Overreacting (110 comments)

I can never quite tell if the people that make this argument are trolls or they're just trying to rationalize their use of BitTorrent to download stuff illegally. If you take something that's not yours and it's something that would normally require payment to acquire, then you're stealing. It's theft.

Women More Likely To Unfriend Than Men

mattgoldey Re:Social exclusion is a femal strategy (135 comments)

I'm curious about your thought process while writing this. Why would you add an apostrophe in "female's" but in "animals" or "girls"? And not in the send usage of "females". If you're going to abuse apostrophes, why not go whole hog?

What's Keeping You On Windows?

mattgoldey Re:What keeps me (1880 comments)

Same here. I use Windows 7 at work because it's my only option. When the Mac mini was first released, I picked one up to give it a try and soon after, my home became Windows-free. I know it's cliche to say it "just works," and it's also one of the points that gets repeatedly made fun of, but that's been exactly my experience. I've been a Mac OS X user for almost 7 years now and I don't know a whole heck of a lot about it other than how to use it because I don't NEED to. It would be silly to say I've never had any problems, of course I have. But they've always been either easy to resolve with a quick Google search or they've been resolved shortly after discovery by an update from Apple. At this point, I can't ever see a time in which I'll go back to Windows.

Linux Support Fades For 3Dfx Voodoo, Rage 128, VIA

Not running the latest software? Doom 3 running on a Voodoo 2 ;)

Doom 3 was released 6 years ago. That hardly qualifies as "latest software".

Removal of Printed Photo Credit Qualifies as DMCA

mattgoldey mattgoldey writes  |  more than 3 years ago

mattgoldey (753976) writes "A federal appeals court in Philadelphia has reinstated a photographer's copyright lawsuit against a New Jersey radio station owner, after finding that a lower court came to the wrong decision on every issue in the case.

Most significantly, the appeals court said that a photo credit printed in the gutter of a magazine qualifies as copyright management information (CMI) under the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA). The DMCA prohibits the unauthorized removal of encryption technology or copyright management information from copyrighted works."

Duke Nukem Forver teaser trailer to be released

mattgoldey mattgoldey writes  |  more than 6 years ago

mattgoldey writes "From

Last Saturday we had our annual company Christmas party. It was a lot of fun as usual but it featured one special surprise. It turns out that several people had been secretly working late nights and into the wee hours of the morning preparing a special video for those at the party. They created a short teaser for Duke Nukem Forever.

After seeing the teaser we thought it was something we should share with all of you and while it's just a teaser, rest assured more is coming.

Tomorrow, Wednesday the 19th, around noon CST, we will release the first teaser trailer from Duke Nukem Forever. To tide you over until then, there has been a screen shot taken from the teaser and posted in our forums. Check it out here.

Thank you for being fans of the game and for your continued patience.

We'd like to thank the people on the team that worked so hard to create this teaser and the friends of 3DR that helped create it (Jeremy Soule and Julian Soule, Frank Bry, Jason Evigan and of course, Jon St. John).

UPDATE: Here is an update that George Broussard made online this evening:

        Guys just to manage expectations...

        This is a teaser. It's not a full blown trailer like the 2001 trailer (but something like that is coming). I tried to be clear about that in the message board post, so just bear in mind that it's a teaser :)
