Microsoft is engaging in some serious fucking Obi-Wan speak when it comes to whether or not their new console requires an always-on Internet connection. It doesn’t. But does. You don’t have to be connected. But you have to connect everyday. I can’t keep track of this fucking stupidity. And yes I think requiring people to connect daily for a single-player game is fucking dumb.
The largest bummer about these kind of news stories isn’t that our government is routinely wiping their bum-bum with what we consider to be our rights.

I already own a copy (copies?) of 1984, but Penguin’s new cover may have me double (triple?) dipping.
How would you feel about having a high-velocity missile launcher stationed on your rooftop? I’d feel a bit of a villain swag, complimented by being really frightened that there was a death machine on my building’s head. London residents are working through these same sort of emotions as they prepare to have weapons of death on their rooftops in anti-terrorist measures during the the Olympics.

Motherfuckers at Apple don’t fool around. How serious are they!, Caff?! Well, they are so serious they’ll put new employees on fake projects just to gauge if they’re trustworthy. That serious!
I already thought it was creepy when it turned out that the Kinect could figure out what sort of clothing we’re wearing and report it to advertisers. The next Kinect? Motherfucker is going to be reading your lips.
