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...

Study Claims More Marriages Ending Due To Video Games

British news site Mail Online says a recent study indicates that excessive gaming (calling out World of Warcraft and Call of Duty especially) is on the rise as the problem cited for filing divorce. Supposedly the number of women who claim their men "put gaming before them" as their impetus for filing has jumped 10% from last year, from 5% up to 15%.

While my WoW account is currently inactive (which will change when the next patch hits in a few weeks), this is a good reason for why I'm not tied down at this point in my life. I give myself a hard enough time over the number of hours I spend gaming, without having some harpy who just doesn't get it bitching at me for it. Honestly, how many of those failed marriages do you think are really the result of an actual addiction as opposed to the woman not bothering to even try and share in her husband's interests?

I get tired of hearing the term "video game addiction" thrown around everywhere I go. Yes, it's a real thing, but the line between addiction and a hobby that you're just really into is paper thin, and I think people who don't play games are prone to jump to the "addiction" conclusion the second they see an adult partaking in multiplayer video games. Feel free to share your thoughts below.
