Windows 10 Review for Dummies

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...


The Game of Politics

Posted on Tuesday, February 5 @ 21:11:29 PST by Duke_Ferris
Today in the U.S., 24 states have their presidential primaries, so by tomorrow it should be pretty clear who will be the final contenders. But who are the best candidates for gamers?

Ex-Revolutionary Ben Silverman did a gaming roundup of all the front runners for Yahoo Games, and his analysis is worth a read.

While there's no clear pro-gaming candidate, most of the folks don't seem like they'd be likely to censor games.

Barack Obama is young enough to have friends who game, and he supports the ESRB, but he also mysteriously turned down a donation associated with the ESA. While Clinton fell for the anti-video game hysteria for a while, and helped to author a unconstitutional video game censorship law, she seems to have changed her mind and has recently done television spots for the ESRB to try and educate parents. And while a conservative, one of John McCain's major backers is an avid gamer and owns a chunk of a startup game developer.

And then there's Mitt Romney. His statement is pretty frightening:

"I want to restore values so children are protected from a societal cesspool of filth, pornography, violence, sex, and perversion. I've proposed that we enforce our obscenity laws again and that we get serious against those retailers that sell adult video games that are filled with violence and that we go after those retailers."

Whoa. If you haven't voted yet, get out there and do it.

And what? No Ron Paul? Someone forgot to tell Ben this was the internet.
