RIP Minecraft 15/9/2014

It was dead loooong before that.

Brickbats fly at my fireplace, upside down I see them in the fire. They squeak and roast there. Wings leap across the floor, fold up the wall shadows. The window curtain ghost throws my heart and dusts my throat. My mind caught by the corner gradually decides its safe, becomes a bat itself, flexes its little claws. Curse its leather wings with loud, hollow pops around the room, threatening to dash its brains. Somehow, at the last minute retreats and becomes a natural glue and holds fast and slow in every other motion, making the night more interesting. Becomes a cold, liquid breeze that freezes and thaws and pours the surroundings full. As no breath can be taken, it drowns and relieves to see the black turn into yellow, and the yellow into black.

AOL owns a bunch of HIGHLY successful publications including Huffington post, Engadget, Autoblog, TechCrunch, and more.

What's the most efficient way to silence your critics when it comes to legislation, WHILE bringing more money to the table?

Think about it. Verizon is great at doing shady shit while staying under the radar. Comcast is fucking clumsy about it.

First, it seems that AOL is trying to spin off Huffington Post.

Second, even if they lock down these properties with the intent of silencing critics, they can't get rid of the people behind these ventures. They'll simply move onto other projects, which is why I always find it stupid when tech and biz giants try to erase negative perspectives on the Internet. The Streisand effect is very, very real.

No, this is good. Microsoft will buy everything good, screw it up, and then force a market crash. Rebirth will fix everything...

Has someone yet bought Funcom (Anarchy Online, The Secret World, The Park)? Seems like they're dying and I'd want to play TSW in the future too.

Oh the fucking irony. The corporation that is notorious for trying to copyright and sue over use of generic names like "Skeleton King", buying the one that tried to copyright and sue over the use of the word "Saga", the one word that is used in pretty much every second game/movie/book title ever.

I need a hand. I use OneDrive to keep backups of some important stuff, and since MS has screwed everyone and lowered the capacity from 15gb to 5gb last year, I've run out of space. If you have a Microsoft / Hotmail account and haven't used OneDrive yet, click my referral link: Here
You don't necessarily need to use it, just drop some random file in it or something and that'll be fine. I get 500mb of space for each person.

Holy tech bubble. 6 billion? They're a bunch of greasy limeys who rip off other people's IP, then sue the original creators.

According to the report, Microsoft's supposed expression of interest to acquire Twitter is in part a play to drive up the price to keep Salesforce, a cloud computing company, from buying it.


Windows incompatibility is a feature, not a bug.

Twitter is fucking worthless. It can't generate ad revenue worth a fuck and the assets are zilch. At least Facebook is a revenue generator.

Twitter serves the Hivemind and strengthens the would be Global Citizens.

I don't have Twatter or Fecebook.

No mention of Monsanto and Bayer in here?

Lots of keywords in so little time.
