Also, they don't have the power to make medicines (or anything) free.  Not sure where that concern even came from.   icon_confused


No but they do have the power to strip legally obtained TM's whenever they want apparently. So why not benefit mankind?

And I have no delusions about Snyder, but he's clearly not greasing the right palms.

Edit: I wish Pr0ner would chime in. I think he works in the patent/trademark field.

Aren't all trademarks legally obtained though? If you're not allowed to strip a trademark then what is even the point of having a process that enables that? I'm not sure that there's anything wrong with overriding previous decisions. Everything that is illegal was once legal.

According to my Facebook friends, the new argument is that Oklahoma means "red people," so we better change the state's name now too.
Tell your friends that they don't need to change the name, then just lose their trademark rights to Oklahoma. smile
48  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Re: Amazon's new product: Holographic 3D Phone? on: June 19, 2014, 08:57:20 PM
Yeah this would make way more sense for Amazon to make an app for the millions of smartphones that are already out there directing all those customers to Amazon's store.

Honest question. Does the First Amendment extend to trademarks/patent rights?

The biggest problem I have with it is that we have a branch of the government deciding what is and isn't "offensive" based on speech. If you guys so clearly want to believe in the free market then why can't the USPTO sit back and watch the trademark wither away because the American people don't buy the products it's associated with?  

Why is it is so difficult to understand that this is out and out racism.  Redskin is NOT a tribal name, nor is it a person's name.  It's a racist slur.  Indians have been trying to get it banned for ages.  This isn't a new endeavor created by a "PC crowd".  If there was a team called the New York Kikes or the San Diego Tar Babies, would that be okay?  

And the American people have repeatedly proven that they aren't ALWAYS going to do the right thing.  As a matter of fact, if the government DIDN'T step in from time to time, we'd still have lynchings, whites only water fountains and segregation in many areas.

1. I never denied that it's offensive or racist.

2. Lynchings, whites only water fountains, and segregation are a far cry from a corporate logo and team name. In fact they're not even in the same ball park. We're not talking about basic human rights here, what we're talking about is hurting people's feelings. It's a slippery slope when the government starts making decisions based off of hurt feelings.
I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt but the fact that Zeke agrees with you could be a hint that you might be wrong on this one. smile

Next up will be the Dallas Cowboys  icon_twisted
I'm guessing your joking but being a cowboy has nothing to do with race. Unfortunately this will be tied up in the courts for a long time. I wonder how long the team would keep their name if everyone started making merchandise without paying royalties. I bet they would drop their righteous anger pretty fast.

It's always been smoke and mirrors anyways. Why not change the message? How beneficial is all this cloud/dedicated technology for people who aren't signed up for Xbox live? If someone just wants to play single player, can they still take advantage of the building falling down technology without having to subscribe to Live?

I'm thinking about it. It's a Slitherine/Matrix game so you can feel fairly confident about buying it and not finding that it's on sale for half price the next month.
58  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: Qvadriga - Roman Chariot Racer Simulator on: June 14, 2014, 08:58:09 AM
You'll have to register your key with Slitherine and they'll give you a Steam key.

Not bad. Has it really been 20 years? That means I was 14 for the original. At 34 it's not quite the same.

There's some cussing, but nowhere near as bad and often as the GTA series.  I haven't seen anything regarding sex, other than some descriptions when you profile someone.  I heard you can spy on someone having sex but don't see anything. 
Gratuitous violence and murder but no sex? America is going to love this game!

While I don't really want to keep the next gen graphics issue alive, I did find that the this video comparing it to GTA IV is a bit disheartening.  Was R* that far ahead of the curve that even now, their techniques and attention to detail haven't been adopted?

Wow that is pretty crap. That was GTA 4 and not 5? The shadows in watchdogs are atrocious (according to that video)

Talk of it in the Watchdogs thread...

(I'll suspect no one is seeing this since I'm sure I'm ignored by everyone).

why is this thread being bumped?  All I see is the post from Razgon?
Hey Caine, what's with the empty quote? And you posted after Razgon so you must have bumped the thread! That's a bit odd of you.

Oh and the review embargo being until release portends bad things.  Probably going to score high 70s.
I'm guessing, the game is good but the hacking is rinse and repeat and the game runs like crap. Hence the embargo.

Interesting. Problem being is that you can't expect that extra processing power to be available to use in the first place. And people might be rather upset that the console without Kinect would get extra FPS/graphical details because they have the power to spare.
This is what I'm wondering. What a middle finger it would be to the first adopters to end up having a less powerful console than everyone who was smart enough to wait.

An article on Forbes States that the PS4 will run at 900p and the Xbone will run at 792p. Both at 30fps. Oops.
73  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: Xbox One Discussion on: May 13, 2014, 11:31:49 AM
I think the real reason is not because you can get Netflix on your toaster these days but because a particular toaster  called the PS4 is outselling the Xbox one by a wide margin.
74  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: May 11, 2014, 09:46:24 PM
The previous post mentioned Sony having the best graphics on any console so that's what I was referring to. Obviously the PC will be superior.
75  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: May 11, 2014, 03:02:31 PM
I think it's pretty obvious that the PS4 will have the best graphics. The real question is is there enough of a disparity that people can actually tell a difference? Probably not.

79  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What's the word? on: May 01, 2014, 01:51:54 PM
I can't think of a word and it's killing me. I suppose it happens to all of us from time to time but I feel like after living in Japan for 9 years I'm losing some of my vocabulary.
Anyways, the word is a verb and it's often  used when an entity gains a lot of new territory. Before they can continue gaining new territory they have to process what they've taken and make sure that their gains are secure.
What's the word that I can't get?

I sometimes watch LPs on YouTube.  OneF Jef is pretty hilarious in his videos. Sometimes, especially when it comes to strategy games or simulations that take a heck of a lot of work to get into, it's far more enjoyable to watch someone else playing the game then having to go through all the hard work yourself.  Something like Assassins Creed I would never watch an LP of.
