I will be looking into a 64 GB 6 Plus eventually, but I have bigger fish to fry in the next month.

Shadowrun: Dragonfall Director's Cut drops in two days.  As a KS backer, I will get it gratis.

Here is the initial KS announcement about the Director's Cut.  They've published four Dev Diaries under the Updates that detail the work they've been doing.

Finished up the final (real) season of Scrubs.  Moving on to finish up Burn Notice, jumping back in to early Season 6.  Once I finish up that, the idea is to move on to Fringe for my first pass through.

We're close to finishing up the previous season of Supernatural.  We just finished Season 2 (THE FARM!) of Walking Dead.  I might give it another go now that we're done with all the farm stuff.  I've been working on the last non-relaunch season of Scrubs, and you can definitely tell that it changed a bit for the finale season.

Even better, I'm a former employee.  My acct information had to change when I moved from WTX to DFW, but I know all the ins and outs, to whom to write complaints to cause the maximum amount of carnage, and what magic buzzwords will make them crap their pants.

I'm grandfathered into AT&T's unlimited data plan at $30 a month.  Most of the other unlimited plans I've seen only guarantee 4G speeds to a certain bandwidth cap, then start throttling you.  Unless things don't get demonstrably worse for me than everyone else, I have no good incentive to move providers.

Get off the contracts! Contracts are the devil! Go to T-Mobile! Tongue

64 GB iPhone 6+:
AT&T - $399
T-Mobile - $849

So not signing a 2-year contract to get the device subsidized, when I've used all my previous devices for three years, will cost me an extra $450 dollars?  I think I'll pass.  Tongue

I'm likely in for a 6+ at the 64 GB level.  I still have 12 GB free on my 64GB (57 available) on my 4S.  But I want to actually experience the difference in size first.

Why does it matter to you if they are or not?  And on what authority do you make that distinction?

Seeing as the NFL has suspended him indefinitely, you might be waiting a while.  At least until the court case is resolved.

Man, that's a shame about the NHL title.  Now if someone else would pick up the puck and run with it.  

I'm a console version behind, and since all the sports titles were abandoned on the PC anyway, I'm not purchasing a thing.

I will be steeped in football on Sunday.  I'm in a bit of a gaming lull.  I might be persuaded to fire something up tomorrow, but at the moment, I have no idea what I would look towards.

Marvel is so eating DC's lunch these days.  As a longtime DC fanboy, it's kind of sad that they can't make films to compete, and have now muddied their own waters with such an ill-conceived direction.

I quit the Comixology app cold turkey after Amazon acquired it. I guess I'll have to quit using Twitch now (I have found it great for sharing gameplay snippets without devouring my hard drive space as I with FRAPS).

After Amazon acquires The Internet next year, I guess I'll have to give that up too. Oh well. I still have my typewriter. Amazon can't screw THAT up. icon_eek icon_razz

The prices on the 2K sale aren't actually changing day-to-day, just what they "feature" on the banner.

I imagine the re-release of Aladdin next year just got a few more bonus features projected for addition.
149  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Star Wars Episode VII Director Revealed on: August 21, 2014, 03:15:29 PM
You think they're going to change what's worked so well for so long?  We're looking at a decade of saturation before they even consider putting anything in "the vault", and I don't even know if that's something they do with live action titles.

When I was going back through some old paperwork, I ran across a receipt from the University bookstore for my first year of college in the fall of '93.  My SSN was printed on it in full, as that was my ID number as far as the school was concerned.

Is Counterspy a retail release, or is it more a PSN d/l purchase?  Price point?
153  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 8/15/14 on: August 18, 2014, 06:52:40 PM
I went to the boardgame event.  Played Arkham Horror, All Hands on Deck (which should be up on Kickstarter next month), Cutthroat Caverns, and several rounds of One Night Ultimate Werewolf.

Your data will be acquired by hackers. Know it, own it.  Do what you can to protect yourself.

Community Health Systems

Quote
Hackers have gained access to their names, Social Security numbers, physical addresses, birthdays and telephone numbers.

Anyone who received treatment from a network-owned hospital in the last five years -- or was merely referred there by an outside doctor -- is affected.
...
The company's hospitals operate in 28 states but have their most significant presence in Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas.
...
Federal investigators and Mandiant told the hospital network those hackers have previously been spotted conducting corporate espionage, targeting valuable information about medical devices.

But this time, the hackers stole patient data instead. Hackers did not manage to steal information related to patients' medical histories, clinical operations or credit cards.

Still, the lost personal information is protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, the federal health records protection law. That means patients could sue the hospital network for damages.
...
Making matters worse, Community Health Systems said it will provide notification to the 4.5 million patients "as required by federal and state law," which is inconsistent and varies by region. There is no federal data breach law that requires timely and transparent disclosure that sensitive personal information was lost.
...
The hospital network said that just before Monday's announcement, it managed to wipe the hackers' malware from its computer systems and implemented protections to prevent similar break-ins.

The company plans to offer identity theft protection to the 4.5 million victims of the data breach.

Their main site is down, so the map from the article is the best you can get at the moment.
