The real loser in an argument about the meaning of the word 'hoverboard' is anyone who leaves that argument on foot.

Shhh! Don't tell them. The "cyber" prefix makes it so easy to tell when someone has no clue what they are talking about.

Remember, mentally replace "cyber-" with "computery-" and things will be much more accurate and fun.

Commerce is a wonderful thing. It allows man to abuse man without having to kill, rape and pillage. The cartoon also comes close to demonstrating the divide between transactional norms and social norms that Dan Ariely (and probably others) speaks about.

I imagine it would only work if you can sell the chips for more than the cost of the meal, assuming the restaurant requires a purchase to qualify for free chips. Or at the very least, the value of the chips you take home is less than the cost of buying them at the grocery store by an amount offset by the purchase required to obtain the free chips.

“HBO Now” coming this spring for $15 per month, with Apple as launch partner

1 Comment

A source speaking to the International Business Times said that HBO will launch its standalone streaming service, called HBO Now, for $15 per month this spring with the premier of Game of Thrones. The company is also working with Apple to make Apple TV one of the launch partners for the service, the sources said.

HBO’s standalone streaming service has been greatly anticipated. For a monthly fee, viewers will be able to get HBO content without having to pay for an entire cable package. HBO’s long-standing relationship with pay-TV packages has prevented it from capturing key audiences, including younger people who may have never paid for TV service before and watch most of their entertainment online. HBO currently has a streaming service called HBO Go, but a bundled TV package is required for access.

HBO will serve up its content with the help of Major League Baseball’s Advanced Media platform, a decision that was made after the network decided to throw out its homemade streaming platform in late December. HBO's Chief Technology Officer Otto Berkes also resigned at that time.

Nope. Et de toutes les façons, OCS (Go) qui a les droits pour les séries d’HBO et les diffuse dans la foulé de leur sortie US ne coûte que 12€/mois (13€ chez Orange). Donc peu ou prou la même chose.
