Deepfreeze from faronics, $35 for a personal license.
Oh whats this? my computer has 35bajillion virus, malware, rootkits, and or otherwise is totally screwed? meh whatever, just reboot. Only the hardcore of the hardcore hackers could even begin to infect a system with DF. seriously, any teenyhackers that exist will seriously rage at you if you can circumvent their "1334" coding skills with a reboot.
btw it's also great for testing out unknown software and even developing programs. as you always reboot into a fresh install.
so whats stopping me from creating crappy content copyrighting it, "leaking" it out online from an external source and suing people when they dl it? it would be the best corporate scam in the history of the music industry! yea....i know what i'm doing next summer.
i agree it's amazing how much work faronics saves me. i also bought copies for my parents computers. Instead of going to "mom and dads" house only to fix computers, we can totally sit back and have a nice bbq instead.
what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this thread is now dumber for having read it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
btw I'm not a mac-boi. I read and re-read your post, and I still cannot fathom the logic you used. It's almost as if you smashed your face against your keyboard and miraculously generated English words that have no context or purpose.
Recently out of all the government sanctioned agencies, the FCC has been the coolest. They're honestly fighting for what is right for the citizens of the this country. It's tons more than I can say for other tax-funded political backwash agencies that naught be named.
Although the denialist in me says this is an outright lie, the actions taken recently by companies like Steam may prove the point. Steam Greenlight is going to be very popular due to the overwhelming nature of their users. However, Valve is obviously worried enough about the PC gaming situation to create such a drain on their limited resources to create Greenlight. Having said that I would like to note that games never die, they just get emulated. Back in the early 80s everyone was worried about the gaming industry collapsing, it didn't. In fact it came back stronger than before, with Mario, Sonic, and other miscellaneous games. It ran another 20+ hard years until it hit another wall. This is just another fallback, give it a few years and you're all going to be singing a different tune.
i'm with Gabe on this one. I've played around with Windows 8, and the only way it's a good OS is on a tablet enabled PC. In my opinion, there are only going to be two kinds of people that will use Win 8 though; people who don't have a choice, and people who don't know any better. I currently work for a company that has at least 8000 workstations that I know for a fact will never see windows 8, if anything we will be sticking with windows 7 Enterprise for a very long time. We've had the beta for 8, we've talked with Microsoft Representatives, and honestly 8 just isn't that stable of a system for workforce productivity. They completely re-engineered the UI and the structure of the filesystem. It's slow, filled to the brim with bloatware, and feels just down right wrong to upgrade. Some of Microsoft's tactics to force users to upgrade recently have seemed very cut-throat at times. Microsoft is slowly becoming the tyrant of a company that everyone always accused it of being, which is a shame.
I for one welcome the day when Linux has taken over a large portion of the market. Maybe then I won't have to answer so many stupid questions about why Google is broken.
This just proves the point that macs(no matter how old) are just overpriced, over-hyped, pieces hardware that do more as a work of art -- aka paperweight -- than they do as a functional piece of equipment. At no point in history will a mac save the world, whereas PCs save the world on a daily basis. Don't "Think Different", think of how much the world could be changed if instead of buying a $12,000 Macbook, you bought a $12,000 shipment of food for the homeless. Stop "Thinking Differently" and start thinking logically.
i have a feeling kim dotcom from megaupload wishes he had some of these before he went to prison.
I understand their woes, and I actually agree with them on the fact that used games ARE killing single player games. However, I think the fault is theirs. If they made a game that was actually fun, original, and had high replayability then nobody would return the game. Example; KOTR 1, that game was freaking amazing! You could play the game over and over again and still have a different experience each time. I had my copy stolen because the game was just THAT good. Another Example; Fable 3, It was meh the game-play was similar if not the same as the last one. The story was stagnant and they wanted to make another one. I beat it in two days, tons of people had complaints about it because of similar reasons.
TLDR -- good games not only make good sales, they make good customers.
