Any USB-OTG cable can already do this though. I don't get how this is worth the doubling or tripling of price over a normal one.

Good luck replacing cables at 60GHz. Won't get a signal anywhere but sitting on the router unless you wanna waste a shitton of energy in getting the signal anywhere at all.

Say what you will about IE, but IE10 and IE11 are actually good, and anyone bashing it simply because it's IE are showing their blatant ignorance. Still, for many other reasons, third-party browsers are often a better choice.

You'll still be able to hit Ctrl + L to select it, and hopefully be able to click on the origin chip in order to reveal the entire URL.

Yes, you can.

This actually makes phishing harder. Think of a site such as for example www-46467238.com/apple.com/phishingpage the likes of which you often see now. The domain chip will show www-46467238.com instead of what the user is more likely to see as the domain: apple.com (which is actually just a directory.)

True, but it remains to be seen how this specific implementation of that brings that out in practical usage scenarios.

This has to be the most vacuous topics I've seen on news sites lately. Why is it so necessary to speculate on this topic?

I fail to see how it is even remotely relevant why the developer cancelled the game. He clearly doesn't want to talk about it and the press attention seems to be negatively affecting him. Not all people want money or success and it is only suggestive to speculate that there are hidden motives here.

The game's gone; it doesn't matter why.

Of course it'll sell if it's good. That's the problem; if you don't patent something good, then someone else might (will) steal your idea and sell products with the same concept and make money off of your ideas and research (which aren't cheap.)
