Windows 10 Review for Dummies

Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


A Little Conflict Of Interest? Just Maybe?

A couple days ago in the Manifesto, I reported on a British Dept of Health ad campaign that seemed to be selectively targeting video games. Well there's more news.

So this magazine ad running in England caused some controversy for singling out gamers and it's irresponsible use of the word DEATH. Many of you pointed out the complete lack of accountability for junk food and television.

Bad enough, right? It gets worse.

That ad is part of a campaign called Change4Life, which is trying to educate people about the problem with obesity in the UK. Part of the funding for that campaign comes from a coalition of businesses called Business4Life.

Business4Life has pledged £200,000,000 (no that's not a typo) to the anti-obesity campaign, and in exchange the Department of Health has granted them influence over the editorial content of the campaign.

Now many of those companies are benign, but others... Well I've made a little photoshop for you updating the ad to make it a little more honest. Here are some of the companies and their products that are behind this video game smear campaign.

It must be the games, right? Because all these companies say it's the games that make your kids fat.
