It'll be business as usual after the merger, and Comcast will just say "sue me" while laughing at you when they become even more anticompetitive than they already are, after their inevitable rate hikes of course.
Some games are just not the same without the original music, the soundtrack of Crazy Taxi was a good example, the re-releases are just not the same. You probably remember jamming it to the offspring at its most enjoyable moments.
This is why licensing should apply for a game's entire title rather than a finite term. This would include all future patches and ports to consoles/devices. Games are not really compatible with the existing time limited licensing scheme.
The only way *anything* should be removed from Github is if its copyrighted source code that was leaked/stolen from some private repository that was never intended to be in the public eye. The MPAA is simply abusing the DMCA if they think they can simply remove P2P client code on their flawed basis of infringing THEIR copyrights.
With the way PIPCU and CoL Police keep going it appears they only just discovered the internet as they have complete technical ignorance of its underlying workings as shown by their idiotic decision making.
The real problem is that they appear to only take technical "advice" from the content industry and will not/cannot research anything for themselves. They are clearly either being bribed or being taken for a ride by big content.
@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.
