@AC VAC is not enabled unless you play on a VAC enabled server. The server admin has a choice if he/she wishes to enable VAC. Single player sessions do not use it at all.
Chances are if you're cheating on a VAC enabled server, you're up to no good and have an unfair advantage.
If you are banned, you can still play on the (small number) of non-VAC enabled servers where everyone else is also hacking/cheating.
Also, false positives are rare, given the all too unique signature of cheats. Yes, many people have been banned and were innocent, but they were immediately unbanned when Valve figured out it was a false positive. Rarely are false positives 1 in a million either.
The OBDLink's are popular not only because they're faster, but they have a solid and reliable CANBus implementation, which cannot be said for any of the cheap Chinese adaptors. These devices don't only speak OBDII. They also support the other (often proprietary) variations of CANbus as well, and the OBDLink has a fantastic reputation there.
The WiFi version means it works 100% on iOS devices, as Apple still completely cripples bluetooth API functionality whereas WiFi works around this completely. I personally have the bluetooth OBDLink MX and its amazing on Android.
And here they let that popular preteen arousing moron pop star singer back into the U.S. even though he has a laundry list of charges pending?
If you want people to respect the law, starting with equality by removing the FPA (famous persons act) would help.
Crack your ex girlfriends gmail account and post her nudes online, get 6 months probation, if that. Do it to a celebrity or politician, get 10+ years in prison from a laundry list of CFAA charges.
Do nothing, get put on no fly list, barred from U.S for 10 years. Have a DUI from 30 years ago, denied entry into the U.S. Have felony charges pending for vandalism, DUI and speed racing charges, well hello there, how are you? Move along, have a nice day.
For Canada it didn't matter as we sold out to US special interests anyway.
When the Harper government gained majority powers they just used the "301" report as yet another excuse to pass C-11. According to leaked cables, allegedly our government asked the USTR to be included on the priority watch list, which indeed happened.
Theres also the other obvious elephant in the room... Cable providers want to sell TV services and milk those all they can, and as of late, many people are cutting the cord for over the internet TV services... see the problem? Caps hamper peoples ability to do this.
Valve can't bring out their PC based Steam console soon enough, I am tired of the traditional game console penny pinching business model, hence why I stuck to Steam on the PC. Sure its not perfect, but its a hell of a lot less restrictive and you can buy entire series of games for one low price. Nevermind the huge sales they regularly have.
DRM is simply a massive waste of man-hours and drives up prices of product due to the DRM scheme always having massive licensing fees and development costs.
It costs a fortune and it isn't effective, so what is the point. You have to laugh at the blu-ray guys continuing to create new DRM schemes at our expense, annoying us with required firmware upgrades for every brand new disk, all while charging extortionist prices for physical disks.
Slam dunk? Not likely, nor was it ever.
Of course its easy to assume that when one only has the DoJ's side of the story since the DoJ has been resisting the defense from even building a defense every step of the way, illegally.
