"It is unreasonable to conclude that when a person forks over $30 for a one-time transaction they are agreeing to pay a $1200 fee (silently assessed and without additional warning)."
I couldn't agree more. A friend of mine experienced this exact same kind of thing a couple of years ago, when a group of us went down to Boston (from Canada) for some sports action. He worked for a mobile carrier, so he had a business phone, but he ended up using it so much (while we were roaming), that the bill ended up being $3,000. He didn't even use it that much... just for some GPS and quick Google searching. They never warned him about this gouging or anything, and the only reason he got away with it, whereas a normal person wouldn't, is because he worked for a carrier that worked out a deal.
I'd be interested in seeing a follow-up, to see if this guy will actually have to pay that bill. Judging by his wording, he almost seems settled on the fact that he's going to pay it.
It's so stupid that AMD is getting the blame here when the exact same issues happen on NVIDIA. I started a game on launch day and it crashed when I set my resolution, and not long into the game, an NPC fell through the road. Then we have the low texture issues. As others have said, Ubisoft is pointing the blame on anyone but itself, and it's of course not going to talk about NVIDIA given that relationship.
Hurry up, Tuesday. I cannot wait to play with Lollipop. Also, I gave GRID a test last night again, and I am impressed with how well it works. Looking forward to seeing what new games are en route.
I am so impatient. I've been checking for an update on my first-gen Moto G and SHIELD Tablet every single day since the 5.0 came out earlier this month :S
I love the CoD series, but I think it's foolish that it tops this list. That's the problem when it's fans (or fanboys) that ultimately decide this list. I think Mario deserves the top spot, no question, and I think GTA should rank higher than CoD (even though i prefer CoD over GTA... I'm just being realistic). I am a glad to see that The Witcher got a mention though, especially since it consists of only two titles at the moment. Those titles are simply amazing.
On the upside, he's gained a lot of free time to update the software on those things.
That's the Nixie when it's wrapped-around a wrist, sans wrist.
I like the way you think.
To those of you saying "AdBlock", you're helping nothing when you're watching content on YouTube and block the ads... the revenue doesn't stream down to the content publishers. Thus, this is an honest option for those not wanting ads, but still want to support the hard work of the people that make these videos.
That aside, I'm intrigued, but I think I'd rather click a button on every publisher I want to support financially rather than just have some blanket subscription.
I'm more interested in seeing how it retains its users. Everyone I know who signed up weeks ago has largely forgotten about it. I haven't logged in in two weeks (until just now), because nothing was going on when I last checked it out (last update from any of my 10 friends was 16 days ago).
The service really needed to hold off on its launch for a while. The VC is nice, but I really can't see Ello going anywhere.
