Today brought the long awaited release of Grand Theft Auto IV for the PC….
Along with it: a new version of SecuROM DRM.
I have made my verdict: I am NOT buying in to this…. but no doubt, I will be playing GTA IV, while I am $50 richer.
Where as I would love to post that the Twek Guides community has evolved with new features, I must actually announce the opposite: Koroush Ghazi has announced that he will disable the forums once and for all tonight. He has also announced that he will denounce from future game guides, but will contenue to update the Tweaking Companion, and the existing guides as needed.
We are entering a scary era,on a wheeled mobile that keeps gaining speed without enough brake power to stop it.
The United States is trying to claw it’s way back to a stable stance, but is slowly falling apart more and more as time goes. Every week we are presented with a new crises, all of which have been brewing devlopments for some time. The truth is that the US is suffering from losses generated in the last year, which reminds me that a year from now will reflect what we are losing at the moment more clearly than our present time.
How much longer could the country possibly last in this shape?
Wall Street is a system that has no fault protection. But investors are too scared of the shape to worry about blame, especially on a day like today (the worst low since 2003). They fear that their bank accounts will be worthless when they leave the stock exchange, even though they may have 10 million dollars in cash under their bed.
“The Big Three” (Ford, GM) are cautiously panicking now, as they claim that they are on the verge of major collapse. Where as the big three used to dominate the nations financial system, investors could care less on what these automobile makers have to offer and how much strength their survival provides. The investors do not care that
Next week, I am sure that the senate will be discussing a new bailout plan for a new disaster…. but how long will any of these bailout plans work before all financial resource is diminished or worthless?
*Sigh* This brings me to technology. The world financial crises does affect the technology markets and developments. Intel has already reported major losses. Dell has reported quarter after quarter of losses. Game developers are closing offices to cut costs due to financial loss. EVERYTHING is falling apart, not just in the United States, but the world.
The reasons I write this is:
As I never was too found of Linux due to the long and technical methods to operate anything compared to the ease of Windows, I have come to deeply admire Ubuntu.
Ubuntu is a community developed, Linux-based operating system that is perfect for laptops, desktops and servers. It contains all the applications you need – a web browser, presentation, document and spreadsheet software, instant messaging and much more.
In addition to Ubuntu 8.10, you can also download the latest version of Kubuntu today. Kubuntu is basically Ubuntu with the KDE desktop environment instead of GNOME. Xubuntu 8.10, which uses the Xfce desktop environment is also available today.
This comes as no surprise to me, as bad reviews have piled since the release, and publisher conflicts have risen for months…..
October is a big month for long awaited titles, then November promises as well.
