- Do video games make people violent? I don’t think so but there are some parents who buy their teenaged sons (and some daughters) the most violent video games. When their child becomes insprired by their new game to commit a crime, those same parents who don’t watch what their kids play, blame the game. This years game thats causing contraversy is “Narc” read more here on the game. Now the game is M rated, that means its for Mature audiences, much like a rated R movie. So parents, don’t buy that game for your kid if he’s under the age of 16 atleast.
- Last but not least, Groklaw and Pamela Jones are back with her commentary of the SCO vs. IBM lawsuit. She’s also a FUD (thats Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt) campaign debunker. Recently she tackled the Microsoft case studies to show just how big of a hoax and bribe the studies really are. FUD monsters beware, PJ is coming to get you.
