Game Companies Face Hard Economic Choices

primefalcon They really don't get it do they? (511 comments)

they keep charging all that money for games, kids typicaly can't afford that, especially at this point in time..... If they lowered the games more to the point where kids could buy them as impulse items, they're multiply their sales by 1000 or more. I used to buy games myself for a mere 10 games it was around $800 dollars, of course kids cant afford to pay that, those prices are fucking ridiculous.... Lower the price radically and you'll find you'll actually make more money.....

Universal Remote's Days Are Numbered

primefalcon I Seriously have to Disagree (429 comments)

Not everyone needs or wants a mobile phone, No more logically Universal remotes will just evolve to include more and more functions...... I even question the mobile phones longevity, More area's are getting free wireless coverage, that'll expand, with the rise of netbooks and VOIP, you'll eventually see a disappearing of mobile phones as well know then.... Even if this secondary point doesn't happen which I do believe is unavoidable, This article is seriously flawed

Hitachi Fined $31 Million For LCD Price Fixing

primefalcon Re:Not Smart (135 comments)

I'm not saying no action should of been taken, what I'm saying is I'm not sure this is the right action, I'm sure there are other ways this could of been handled. A fine is a quick easy decision, no thought required...

Hitachi Fined $31 Million For LCD Price Fixing

primefalcon Not Smart (135 comments)

From that report the price fixing was from 2001 to 2004, while I agree something needed doing... Hitting a company with a 31M file in these times could easily send the company bankrupt, when so many companies are filing bankruptcy and causing more and more people to lose their jobs... was this really a smart decision to do this at this point in time?

Microsoft To Offer Free Anti-Virus Software

primefalcon hmmm Antivirus? (448 comments)

I don't really know if it's an antivirus that's really needed from Microsoft. They just need to spend their time making Windows as immune to viruses as Linux is. Security and safety were one of the reasons I stopped using windows a long time ago.

What people are forgetting is that the whole global warming thing itself doesn't have much scientific grounding.
