What cost $10 a month - online streams of movies plus one DVD by mail at a time - will now cost $16 a month, the company said, tacitly acknowledging the high costs of mailing physical DVDs, but also admitting that many people still want the skinny little discs. Online streaming alone will remain $8 a month. Netflix advertised the change as a new choice for consumers.

For current Netflix customers, the price changes will take effect in September, but for new customers, they took effect Tuesday July 12.

I say this is related to Star Fox because they are both animals animated to be like humans.

Enjoy

General Discussion / Do you want a Censored internet?
« on: October 09, 2010, 10:49:31 PM »
COICA



In the United States, a new law proposal called The Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act (COICA) was introduced last week, and there will be a hearing in front of the Judiciary Committee this Thursday.

If passed, this law will allow the government, under the command of the media companies, to censor the internet as they see fit, like China and Iran do, with the difference that the sites they decide to censor will be completely removed from the internet and not just in the US.

Please see the following article from the Huffington Post for more information.

Stop the Internet Blacklist

And if you are a US citizen, please take the time to sign this petition
DemandProgress.org - Petition to Stop the Internet Blacklist!


Update: Also for US citizens, you can email your Senator from the following link and tell him or her your concerns about this bill

Tell Your Senator: No Website Blacklists, No Internet Censorship!

Update, from EFF's website: the Senate Judiciary Committee postponed the scheduled markup of the Internet censorship bill — a fantastic outcome, given that the entertainment industry and their allies in Congress had hoped this bill would be quickly approved before the Senators went home for the October recess. Massive thanks to all who used the EFF Action Center to write to your Senators to oppose this bill.

General Discussion / Gamers: Now is the time to stand up and be counted!
« on: August 06, 2010, 01:47:20 AM »
The ECA informs us saying,
Quote
For nearly two decades, elected officials have tried to regulate which video games you can buy, rent and play. Every single time they’ve passed a law, the federal courts have struck it down as unconstitutional. But this may change this fall.

The Supreme Court of the United States has agreed to hear the State of California’s infamous ‘violent video game case,’ Schwarzenegger v. EMA. That means that this year, or early next, the Court is going to decide whether to agree with the lower federal courts or not. Agreeing would mean that they believe that video games are, and should continue to be, First Amendment protected speech; just like books, movies and music. The court disagreeing would mean that they think video games should be treated differently. This could lead to new bills and laws curtailing video game access in states across the country.

It is no exaggeration to state that their hearing represents the single most important moment for gamers, and the pivotal issue for gaming, in the sector’s history.

Over this summer, we’ll be drafting and formally submitting our amicus brief, which will be included with the other official court documents related to the case. Separately, we will also attach a petition signed by you, the American public, which –by its very existence – will publicly define who the consumers of interactive entertainment are and why we care enough about the issue to take the time to make the effort to speak up and make our voices heard. The petition establishes an authoritative collective position which cannot be redefined by detractors nor co-opted by others. And it enshrines each and every signatory’s participation in the court documents and in the U.S. National Archives’ official records related to the case.

If you’re an American gamer, and you care about gaming and your rights, stand up and be counted; sign the petition today!



Sign the petition that states " We, the undersigned American video game consumers, purchase, rent and play video games the way we do other entertainment content such as movies and music. We respectfully request that you hold that video games are indeed free speech, protected under the First Amendment, like other entertainment media. " HERE

General Discussion / The banana test
« on: January 10, 2010, 10:16:29 PM »
There is a very, very tall coconut tree  and there are 4 animals,
a Lion, a Chimpanzee,  a Giraffe,  and  a  Squirrel.
 
They  decide to compete to see who is the fastest to get a banana off the tree.
 
Who  do you guess will win?
 
Your  answer will reflect your  personality.
So  think carefully . . .  Try and  answer  within 30 seconds.

Got  your  answer?

Now scroll down to see  the  analysis.



If  your answer is:


Giraffe
= you're unrealistic.

Lion = you're not honest.

Chimpanzee = you're a complete moron.

Squirrel   = you're hopeless.





A  COCONUT TREE DOESN'T HAVE BANANAS.

Obviously  you're stressed  and  overworked.

You should take some time off and  relax!

Perhaps have a bit of chocolate.

IDIOT SIGHTING #1
My daughter and I went through the McDonald's take-out window and I gave  the clerk a £5 note. Our total was £4.20, so I also handed her a 20 pence piece.  She said, 'You gave me too much money.'
I said, 'Yes I know, but this way you can just give me £1 back.'
She sighed and went to get the Manager who asked me to repeat my request.
I did so, and he handed me back the 20 pence and said 'We're sorry but we do not do that kind of thing.'
The clerk then proceeded to give me back 80 pence in change..
Do not confuse the clerks at MacDonald's.
 
IDIOT SIGHTING #2
We had to have the garage door repaired. The GARADOR repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a 'large' enough motor on the opener.
I thought for a moment, and said that we had the largest one GARADOR made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower.
He shook his head and said, 'Lady, you need a 1/4 horsepower.'
I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4 and he said,  'NOOO, it's not. Four is larger than two..'
We haven't used Garador repair since. Happened in Moor Park, near Watford.
 
IDIOT SIGHTING #3
I live in a semi-rural area. We recently had a new neighbour call the
Highways Department to request the removal of the 'DEER CROSSING' sign
On our road.
The reason: 'Too many deer are being hit by cars on this stretch of road! I don't
Think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore.'
Story from Potters Bar, Hertfordshire.
 
IDIOT SIGHTING #4
My daughter went to a local Kentucky Fried Chicken and ordered a Taco. She
Asked the person behind the counter for 'minimal lettuce.'
He said he was sorry, but they only had Iceberg Lettuce.
From South Oxhey, Hertfordshire.
 
IDIOT SIGHTING #5
I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport
employee asked, 'Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your
Knowledge?' To which I replied, 'If it was without my knowledge, how would I
know?'  He smiled knowingly and nodded, 'That's why we ask.'
Happened at Luton Airport
 
 
IDIOT SIGHTING #6
The traffic light on the corner buzzes when it's on red and safe to cross the
road. I was crossing with an intellectually challenged friend of mine.
She asked if I knew what the buzzer was for.
I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red.
Appalled, she responded, 'What on earth are blind people doing driving?!'
She is a Local County Council employee in Harrow, Middlesex.
 
IDIOT SIGHTING #7
When my husband and I arrived at our local Ford dealer to pick up our
Car, we were told the keys had been locked in it. We went to the
Service Department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the
Driver's door. As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door
Handle and discovered that it was unlocked. 'Hey,' I announced to the Fitter/Mechanic, 'its open!'
His reply: 'I know. I already did that side.'
This was at the Ford dealership in St Albans, Hertfordshire.
 
STAY ALERT!
They walk among us...

Sherlock Holmes > Avatar?

I think that Sherlock Holmes is by far a much better movie than Avatar not only in acting but general story. People said that Avatar ripped off other stuff, which is like duh it story that has happened in history many times. The relocation of a people because of the resources of their land. The love story people compared to Pocahontas, which I disagree with if you know anything about the true story but I will admit it did have some small resemblance. Taking all this into account its funny that I felt that Sherlock Holmes wasn't a rip off, even though it was based off the books I was so drawn into the way they told the story it felt fresh, not the feeling of it being a rip off.

That's what I consider a great movie, a movie that makes me want to see the next one. Which I seriously hope the do not make an Avatar II which the way they setup the ending there would be no point. Another thing I loved was in Sherlock Holmes besides the setup of another movie at the end was the fact that it wasn't the perfect happy ending where everyone gets their way. Truly Avatar would have been a much better movie if the ending was shocking! If the character died at end and turned into a martyr for the people to fight in the name of! (This was a friends idea of how the end should have been but I agree with it.) In the end I didn't have an emotional response to the movie like I was expecting. Yes it was a good movie, great visuals but it didn't feel fresh and the only emotional response is when my actress (Michelle Rodriguez) died (which tends to happen to her in her roles) wasn't surprising but I was really rooting for her. In Sherlock Holmes even if you don't have a response to justice by law not being satisfied you have this fear or anticipation of the next bad guy. I wasn't truly shocked but I had suspicions but still had an emotional reaction when the truth was revealed about the next bad guy and the fact he had been there the whole time. This is possibly because I have read the books.

Avatar, worth a watch especially if you like special effects. One thought though about the 3d glasses is I bet that Toy Story 3 will have better 3d glasses feel to it where I would say you HAVE to see in 3d! I will say about Avatar in this aspect is that you HAVE to see the first scene in 3d! Besides that scene where I was truly impressed I felt it was lacking in the 3d effect area for all the hype.

Sherlock Holmes, a MUST see if you know Sherlock Holmes he is re-invited for you. If you have never heard of Sherlock Holmes you will fall in love with mysteries! If you loved Star Trek and what they did with that series you will love this movie. I also was impressed with the visuals of this movie and it didn't cost NEAR as much as the Avatar movie plus I didn't have to wear glasses over my glasses.

So there is my rant about those two movies, how bout you? Do you agree with me? Which one is greater in your opinion? If you haven't seen one of them or either I say watch em so you can at least post about them LOL.
