They're not expecting a VERY huge Tsunami, as big as Russia(in land mass) crashing down at a dam they build to handle the largest river on earth that it got wash away.
Epic Fail on EA's part, like how they ruined RA3 with too much hamminess and unit gimiks.
Their so called server can't handle the massive influx of users popping in to play the latest Simcity. So it crashed, and burned due to overcapacity that leaves an almost denial-of-Service attack effect to all.
Congratulation to EA for making this sooo... HARDER than it has to be.
And I'm pretty sure the pirates are happy that their old, off-line simcity copies are now up in the charts and being sold like mad. :P
And I think some of those movie makers from those big companies are making remakes out of old classics like Hansel and Gretel, Jack and the giant beanstalk, snow white, etc into like a Hansel and Gretel that apparently are hunters, Jack: the GIANT slayer?(talk about taking a twist from Buffy: the vampire slayer)and Snow White and the Huntsman...
granted their ORIGIN are already Public Domain... But guess who's holding the latest incarnation under Copyright before the Movie remakes?
but seriously... They should look at their own mirror before calling out to fan artist and authors, amateur video/music makers, DJ and re-mixers.
this Patent-mania is getting WAY beyond COMMON logic AND reasoning.
And Ticking off farmers is one good way for them to STOP farming and start protesting.
They got no massive income out of their livelihood except surplus from their harvest and what ever money remained after selling their produce THEN buying the supplies need for the next harvest season.
If Monsanto wins this, well... THIS proves that the Politicians and the companies sided with him ONLY wants to drain everyone's bank accounts into their own pockets and accounts, leaving us as poor as the 3rd world country citizens...
So... They will go and break our personal privacy of our homes just to have some charge on their advertisement while we're doing something? Even the person is not ACTIVELY watching the TV?
The only thing missing is that they eye ball at us, while a television is running and we're in a bathroom, taking a bath or just doing business on our royal throne... For a free ecchi scene in their eyes AND charge us...
