The Simultaneous Rise and Decline of Battlefield

sixshot Re:In other words, Don't Pay for Promises. (208 comments)

I have been avoiding the Battlefield franchises ever since 4 has been announced. So far, I have been happy with the result. So the money I saved from not buying that (and any future Battlefield game in general), it all went to fancy extras in Guild Wars 2. Satisfied with what I got since that's virtually all I play nowadays. That's my value.

I have seen the decline for a while. But BF3 was definitely the last straw. Until EA and DICE straighten up and start making quality games that supports the community rather than themselves, I won't be bothering with any of the Battlefield games.

Massachusetts Court Says 'Upskirt' Photos Are Legal

sixshot Re:Now that's news for nerds (519 comments)

Too late, Mass Legislation has already passed the law banning upskirting. It's heading to the governor's desk. If not today, by tomorrow, it'll be signed and put into effect.

Now On Video: GCHQ Destroying Laptop Full of Snowden Disclosures

sixshot Something isn't adding up... (237 comments)

I viewed the video and I read the related article... and it says here:

A small team of trusted senior reporters examined Snowden's files in a secure fourth-floor room in the Guardian's King's Cross office. The material was kept on four laptops. None had ever been connected to the internet or any other network. There were numerous other security measures, including round-the-clock guards, multiple passwords, and a ban on electronics.

Okay, 4 laptops are fine. So why does the video show a desktop keyboard? And why is there a completely destroyed ATX desktop motherboard shown there?

Gmail Drops Support for Connecting To Pop3 Servers With Self -Signed Certs

sixshot As a user... (299 comments)

I use Hotmail/Outlook and Verizon at random... however, for importing these into Gmail as POP3, they both support SSL. So there's not much issue on this part. With email being so easily accessible, is this really an issue? I guess the big question should be: Is there an email provider that doesn't provide SSL connection when retrieving via POP3?
