"Notice that no where in there is the DOJ saying anything about paying Apple to do this. In otherwords, the DOJ and the FBI want Apple to do this for free! Why not go this route with GM and have them make tanks for the military for free? Ir's the same principal. "
You mean except where they say the governmet is willing to provide reasonable reimbursement?
"Apple asserts that it would take six to ten employees two to four weeks to develop new code in order to carry out the Court’s Order.... Even taking Apple at its word, this is not an undue burden, especially given Apple’s vast resources and the government’s willingness to find reasonable compromises and provide reasonable reimbursement. "
.. that the game engine is updated each year for free - so your copy of TS2014 is now TS2016 in your Steam Library. If you are keen on the game and buy DLC a few times a year then you are supporting the company in a similar way (and for similar finances) to buying a yearly release.
To be fair, the game comes with numerous routes and trains available. For the past few years at least, updates between the major versions of the game have been free - I'm now on TS2016, but originally bought it in 2012.
The DLC usually adds several features such as scenarios (missions), liveries etc, and there is tons of free stuff available if you look around - some of it very high quality. The chances anyone would want to buy all the DLC is quite slim as each download provides quite a few hours gameplay.
It is worth noting that whilst inks and toners shouldn't ever need to be region locked, there are some consumables such as fuser kits that are region specific - simply because the parts in them run at different voltages (in the case of a fuser, it will have a halogen lamp within it that needs the correct mains voltage)
No mention of the output which is disappointing.. 500mA chargers are too slow these days - I'm looking for a charger that can output 2A to 4 or more devices simultaneously! Also, OEM 9V quick chargers are starting to show up - need a third party device that can do this as well!
Brings back memories of when I went to college.. I had many ways around the security - using a RM Networks default account for login, using a modified version of regedit to gain additional privileges then installing whatever we wanted. We gamed the system mainly so we could set up Quake LAN parties - our 10Mb account limit was too small for keeping the game files in so we needed access to the C: drive :)
Other tricks I used was a DDOS that caused a BSOD on any machines in a list - we used that as soon as a teacher walked in the room to crash all the gaming machines.
I got into trouble a couple of times - but never serious.
Why shouldn't PC be able to do split screen? Mine is attached to a 42" TV, pushes 1080p@60fps on virtually anything you can throw at it, has several 360 pads that can be used with it at the same time...
What I really want devs to do is allow dual monitor gaming on PC - i.e. 2 monitors, one for each player on the same PC!
