ISPs argue that they are 'information services,' not 'telecommunication services' in federal court

July 31, 2015

Internet service providers and trade groups filed a 95-page brief on Thursday in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia laying out their arguments why the Federal Communications Commission’s new net neutrality rules that went into effect in June should be overturned.

It seems that the core argument among ISPs is that common carrier rules cannot be applied to broadband internet providers because they provide "information services" and not "telecommunication services."

July 31, 2015

Yesterday Ubisoft announced that it would bring the Wii U exclusive zombie survival game ZombiU to other platforms as "Zombi" in the middle of August, but it left out some important details that might make some fans a bit irritated.

In a new blog post the company said that the game will have more melee weapons in the Xbox One, PC, and PS4 versions of the game. That's good news. The bad news? It won't have any multiplayer.

July 31, 2015

Riot Games has killed off a League of Legends hero that some people paid money for, though it seems that this death is part of a narrative being crafted as part of the game's lore - and the character will return at a later date. Those who had paid money to play as the pirate hero Gangplank and use his character skins were a little bit upset, with some calling for refunds.

'Necromancer' remains in limbo 15 months after successful crowd-funding campaign

July 31, 2015

In a nebulous, leaderless movement, it is inevitable that factions within will take aim at a high profile member who they either don't like or agree with. That is exactly what happened last week when one individual aligned with GamerGate attempted to shame a prominent figure within its own ranks. Read more

As part of its latest earnings report released today, Sony announced that it shipped three million PlayStation 4 consoles worldwide during the quarter that ended June 30.

Adding those three million units into previous numbers reported by Sony, that brings the total number of PS4s shipped worldwide to around 25.3 million systems.

And while those numbers are healthy for a console that began shipping in November of 2013, it's got a long way to catch up with the 80 million PS3s that are out in the world.

Matthew Wilsonmy god....... people need to play life is strange. its a very very dark version of twin peaks08/01/2015 - 12:56pm
DocMelonheadLook, I know that you guys wanted to study Gamergate; hell, one of your writers were Interviewing KiA on the subject (He's been banned from GamerGhazi). Sadly, the minorities veiwed Gamergate the same way as WBC at best, and Nazis at worst.08/01/2015 - 12:31pm
DocMelonheadIP wanted you to know that GamerGate is about Harassing minorities into submission, not "Ethnics in Journalism". It been a year since the Zoe Post was published and sparked a hate mob on Zoe Quinn.08/01/2015 - 12:28pm
DocMelonheadThat what's IP's goal is here in regard to gamergate: to get you guys to disassociate yourselves from the harassers that made all those claims up to threaten the advocates of social justice for minorities.08/01/2015 - 12:24pm
DocMelonheadIP tries to demonize all of GamerGate and it's supporters, along with those who didn't outright condemn it as a cover for a hate mob full of bigots.08/01/2015 - 12:20pm
MechaCrashNo, IP is trying to dehumanize you, I'm just pointing out that you're a hypocrit who makes bad faith arguments.08/01/2015 - 11:56am
Andrew EisenAnd I'm off too. Play nice, y'all!08/01/2015 - 11:33am
Andrew EisenIn short, discussions of ethics in journalism? Totally fine. Said indie dev's sex life? Not okay.08/01/2015 - 11:31am
james_fudgeTry talking when you have hundreds of people tweeting at you at the same time :)08/01/2015 - 11:30am
Andrew EisenAnd yet, when 30-seconds of research showed that there was no relevance to said indie dev's sex life, many people kept talking about. Hell, still do to this day. I had a guy on Twitter pester me about this nonsense for an entire day last weekend.08/01/2015 - 11:30am
james_fudgeWhatever dude, you're here posting. No one's stopping you.08/01/2015 - 11:30am
Goth_SkunkBe advised: In approximately 30 minutes I'm heading out of town for an obligatory family reunion. This is being stated so that none can interpret my upcoming 24 hour hiatus as a tail-tucking turn from discussion.08/01/2015 - 11:28am
Goth_SkunkEven now, IronPatriot, MechaCrash, and Craig R. continue to attempt to shout me down and dehumanize me.08/01/2015 - 11:25am
Goth_SkunkWhat transpired afterwards was a concerted effort to shout down and dehumanize those trying to bring these matters out into the open. I remain utterly convinced of this to this day.08/01/2015 - 11:24am
Goth_SkunkAnd yet the sex life of this indie developer tied right into the matter of journalistic ethics, as investigations uncovered a great number of breaches of ethical conduct, both related & not. That scandal is the orifice from which the balloon is inflated.08/01/2015 - 11:20am
MechaCrashI am reminded of the saying about playing chess with a pigeon.08/01/2015 - 11:13am
Andrew EisenThis is supported by, well, what actually happened, but also the text of the actual leaks. That was Tito's question and what he and a few (four total, I think) were discussing.08/01/2015 - 11:11am
Andrew EisenNo, it's not. What was generally prohibited was not discussion of journalistic ethics or other GamerGate topics, but threads that were, for example, discussing the sex life of an indie developer. THOSE are what were locked and removed.08/01/2015 - 11:10am
Goth_SkunkI don't believe you. Not for a second. Every major site with the exception of the Escapist prohibited discussion of GamerGate in its early stages. That is a fact.08/01/2015 - 11:04am
Andrew EisenNo, that's a fact. Don't believe me, read 'em yourself. No one was trying to censor discussion of GamerGate.08/01/2015 - 11:02am
