Journalists Banned From Using Smartphones At 2014 Sochi Olympics?

slycer9 How is this a surprise? (114 comments)

The Olympic Committee has been pushing for YEARS that they be the sole source of any information, media or other materials originating from the events. It's only a matter of time before they ban external reporters altogether and simply provide their own press releases throughout the days from their own staffers.

Sharing HBO Go Accounts Could Result In Prison

slycer9 Re:Give me a legal choice HBO (221 comments)

You'd think I was in the boonies, but I'm not.
Prior to moving in I was told that not only was DSL available but they were upgrading to FIOS.

It IS technically available here, the issue is that there are no subscriber slots available.
Cable has never responded to why it's not actually available other than 'it's not sorry'.

Sharing HBO Go Accounts Could Result In Prison

slycer9 Give me a legal choice HBO (221 comments)

Cable isn't available at my house (not even internet, I have to use a cellular data access point), I don't have a clear view for satellite, there are no FIOS options and you won't let me just subscribe to HBO Go so I can watch from my phone or whatever, give me a legal option and I'll take it.

Hell, I bought the previous two seasons already, I'd LIKE to buy this one.

HBO Says Game of Thrones Piracy Is "a Compliment"

slycer9 I CAN'T subscribe to HBO (447 comments)

No cable available at my residence and I don't have a clear view to the sky for satellite service (tried that after moving in).
Compounding issues is that I wasn't aware that there was NO high speed internet service of any sort here before I moved in, it never occurred to me that a new house a few minutes from Birmingham, AL would even HAVE that issue, but it is what it is.

I'd LOVE to be able to just subscribe to HBO Go on its own but I just switch between torrents and (increasingly, although I hate the restrictions) iTunes to get the television shows I want by leeching access from McDonalds and friends houses.

Can't even get DSL here, it sucks which is a rant I should reserve for another thread.

Diablo III Released

slycer9 Downtime Extended Until 530pm EDT (594 comments)

The downtime for the login servers (again, to play a single-player campaign) has been extended to 3:30PM EDT.
At one point I was able to get into a queue (for my single-player campaign) but was randomly disconnected.

I could give a damn about duping and an exploited environment, I never played D2 online and I don't plan on playing D3 online, that's what I have WoW for.

I knew this going in, I was disappointed (I travel extensively, and it's rather difficult to find access points in the Southern US) since I wouldn't be able to play on-the-go, but I said 'well at least it'll be hella fun' when I'm home or at MOST of my destinations.

This is the first time I've broken down and actually purchased a DRM game of this type, and even though I realize that it's launch day, I'm still regretting it.
