“Who are they gonna hire to clean the holodeck?”

From the article: “”It’s something they’d probably rather not see,” said Jim Lovelace.”

Lovelace - LOVELACE! We found out that Linda Lovelace’s brother does for a living.

Since SIS is suffering the slings and droops of outraged fortune, Jim will send a SEIU crew from Sis’s cleaning company.

This is probably very popular with those who’ve never had the real thing...

We got one for my son, but he has already given up and gone back to his war game. He actually slipped and fell on his ass playing soccer I told his dad maybe we should buy cleats! Personally, I’d like to get the Zumba application.

I know - since when did that make any difference to either the porn industry or SEIU?

Feh. It's Microsoft. You'll just catch a 'virus'.

Like, *PING*, dudes and dude-ettes.

Where's the joystick? Or do you use a mouse ball?

Gives new meaning to phrases such as "sticky bit," "core dump,", "head crash," and "peer to peer."

Is this hardware or software?

How much RAM does it take?

Do you insert the game into the USB port?

...can you really play the game with only one hand?

Cheers!

Rimmer: You took your time. Where’ve you been?

Lister: I was in the AR machine.

Rimmer: Again?

Lister: What do you mean again?

Rimmer: Everybody knows you only use the AR machine to have sex.

Lister: That is not true.

Rimmer: Yes, true! It’s pathetic watching you grind away on your own! Day after day after day, you’re like a dog that’s missing it’s master’s leg! That groinal attachment’s supposed to have a lifetime’s guarantee. You’ve worn it out nearly three weeks.

Lister: That’s an outrageous, scandalous piece of libel. I don’t just play the roleplay games. What about the sporting simulations like Zero-Gee kickboxing or Wimbledon?

Rimmer: You only play Wimbledon because you’re having it off with that jailbait ball girl.

Lister: That is another total lie! She’s not jailbait, she’s 17.

Rimmer: Lister, she’s just a computer sprite. Surely that’s the point. She’s just a load of pixels.

Lister: Yeah, but what pixels!

Not the experience I had this Christmas. I bought each of my kids an iPod. The account set-up experience for iTunes was *badly* messed up, necessitating two calls to Apple support.

For the first call, they told me the account had been locked for 24 hours (because I tried to create an account for my son, who is one month shy of the 13 year cut off). The Apple rep told me there was nothing I could do but wait for 24 hours! I ended up getting around the issue by creating the account on another computer (no thanks to Apple).

For the second call, the problem was that their email account verification process was backlogged. Several hours later, the emails showed up, and we were back in business - again no thanks to Apple support.

Then to top it all off, my younger son’s iPod just stopped working. Dead as a doornail. We have to take it to the “Genius Bar” tomorrow morning to get it replaced.

Meanwhile, the Kinect system just worked - not a single issue, no calls to support. It’s awesome.

So screw Apple, they aren’t any better than anyone else, IMHO - just more expensive.

I ran into that problem last year. That's the solution that I had to use, as well. I'd have been happy to set up the account with my name/birthday, if they had highlighted that issue on the front end.

Then to top it all off, my younger son’s iPod just stopped working. Dead as a doornail.

Try going online and googling how to do a reset. It varies by model. But it's part of the Apple myth that you don't get a BSOD, so they have to hide the cure.

Finally, as you'll probably discover, they can be pass code locked. The kids, of course, don't know the pass code, and it's not anywhere you can find it. Just plug the ipod into the computer you used for the initial set up, and it will unlock. (But you can NEVER get rid of the computer you used for the original set up, or when it locks, you'll have a major problem. I think you can take it to an Apple store and they'll basically reformat the memory, deleting anything on the device.

And wait until you want to delete something from the Ipod - apparently fairly easy with an apple computer, but almost impossible to figure out with another machine.

Anyone who says that Apple products are user friendly either never has used one, or isn't smart enough to cry out that the Emperor has no clothes.

Good luck, and best wishes.

I bought an iPod Touch for my kid, mostly so he can video chat with me when I'm on the road.

So I got it a month ago, broke it out of the box, loaded the new OS, loaded a couple games, set up an account for him, everything working great.

Broke it out of the box this morning and put a screen protector and case on it, and nothing worked. While doing a pile of troubleshooting for a half hour I realized that the screen protector had two backings on it, or the first backing I pulled off was another screen protector. At any rate, as soon as I got the extra layer of clear plastic off it started working again. Kind of interesting since WiFi works through walls, but wouldn't go through plastic.

Thanks for the advice. Unfortunately, I did all the different forms of reset on it when I was on the phone with Apple support. It is really and truly dead. I am happy that we can at least go swap it out in person tomorrow morning.

I realize these things do happen. I just get a little miffed when the Apple fanboix make it out like Apple is perfect and all other products, and their owners, are somehow inferior.

The Linux crowd is even worse. I, on occasion, use a couple of flavors of Linux. But folks who ask for help on the Linux forums should not be surprised to receive a rude response that roughly translates to ‘someone asked that question before, and got an answer. Since they were told, you should know the answer as well’. Some folks want to keep their club exclusive.

Wow... mainstream porn. I am not a prude but I don’t believe in a market where sleaziness and disrespect for human person is promoted to make a fast buck. While I like the free market, I don’t accept the view that everything goes. Not even in gaming.

You’d think a TV station would have video of the game, not a still shot.

It’s not mainstream, it’s some Australian company making a game for a game system without permission of the platform creators. It won’t be showing up at Best Buy.

Not gonna happen.

Anything that runs on an un-hacked Xbox require Microsoft approval.

And there’s no way Microsoft will approve this, as the article states.

Likely it’s just the porn company trolling for media attention.

You are so right, although I’m sure you know that problem isn’t limited to Linux forums. I never did understand why someone would go out of their way to belittle another person, when it’s just as easy to help them out.

Use Copy Trans Control Center,you can download it for free.much user friendly than Itunes.Itunes highjacked my computer and kept popping up when I was using any other programs.I uninstalled it and found the CTCC program online and use that to put music on my ipod.The only reason I got an one was that all the docking stations on just about anything are set up for Ipod.My Bose does have an input jack,but I wanted the it for use with the remote control that came with it.I use my Sony Walkman for yardwork and for walking in the park.

All those troubles are why my requirement #1 when buying an MP3 player was that it be accessible via Explorer similarly to a thumbdrive. Which means staying far far away from iPod.
