According to a 2011 CNN report, the video game industry sent the justices several PlayStation games to review as part of its appeal to the ban, including "Medal of Honor" and "Resident Evil 4." The Court later struck the ban down in a 7-2 ruling.

Ah, but I don't capitalize dittybopper on purpose.  It's an e e cummings sort of thing.  Besides which, 'ditty bopper' is a profession, not an actual name.

I also don't capitalize distaffbopper and littlebopper, my Fark names for my wife and son respectively, by extension to dittybopper.  It would seem jarring to capitalize them while not capitalizing my own nom du Fark.

supreme court trolling is the highest form of trolling: As a strict constitutionalist none of our founding fathers mention automobiles or airplanes therefore I have decided the FAA, DMV, and FHA are all unconstitutional.  Also, since no one but property owning white males could vote in the original wording of the constitution I have revoked the right to vote of everyone else.

CheapEngineer: FinFangFark: dittybopper: somedude210: dittybopper: You can use PlayStation on Xbox Live?

if the headline said PSN, would anyone care? no. XBL, for all it's faults is like Kleenex. It's a brand name that is synonymous with the product.

I say 'tissue' and 'soda', not 'Kleenex' and 'Coke'.

And that's why people point and laugh at you.  Not because you use the correct terms...but because you point out the fact that you use the correct terms.

I'll bet he "doesn't own a TV" as well.


Actually, I own two, and I'm actually thinking about getting a small portable battery operated one for emergency use.  Used to have one, but it's worthless now that TV broadcasting went digital.

I always say "Kleenex and Coke".  If you order a "tissue and soda" the bartender has no idea what you're talking about.

At $200 PS3 is a good deal if you haven't played Uncharted, 2, 3 and Last of Us. All three are great games with awesome single player.

If you want Halo obviously get XB1 otherwise there is no reason not to save money and get a PS4.


AdamK:
just get a ps3, there's nothing worth buying at launch for either system that would fit your need

  Yeah, this is the way I am leaning. I haven't played since the PS3 came out and would probably have more than enough console with the older machine.

/also, it's "coke" for all colas but what you mean is "Dr. Pepper".

[popvssoda.com image 850x512]Meh.  It's just an artifact of where I grew up, and where I currently live.

"Soda" refers to soda water, which has actually soda in it, unlike soft drinks, which do not, dammit. Note that the civilized parts of the countryfly over states and the south use "pop" and "coke".

/Because a Coke always beats a Pepsi.

Uh, no.  xbox live is not a generic term for the general idea/scope of getting online via a game console.  Not by a very long shot.


I have to assume that was a very good trolling attempt because I have never heard anybody use XBL in place of online. Hell I can't remember the last time I've heard XBL or PSN in a spoken conversation.

Randal Graves: Band Aids is a brand name. The proper term is adhesive strips.
Dante Hicks: The man is bleeding to death and you're getting into a semantics argument?
Randal Graves: Man, name brand word association is one of the more subtle threats to this nation's free trade. It gives the larger, well-known companies an unfair advantage. I'm doing my part to keep the playing field level by weaning people off referring to generic products with brand names.
Dante Hicks: Way to show some backbone.

Great clown Pagliacci's pick-me-up: "I also capitalize proper names, even made up ones:  'Mr. Fancy Pants'", said dittybopper uncapitalizedly.


A) 'uncapitalizedly' is not a word, as that little red line is reminding you.

B) Proper names are capitalized.  User names, such as those on the internet, are  not always capitalized; proper internet etiquette defers to the username's original spelling. PsiChick is capitalized, for example, while dittybopper is not, and xx55L33tONE would be spelled as shown.

C) ...I really don't care if you say tissue or Kleenex, but if you ask for a Coke I'm not going to ask what flavor, I'm going to ask if you want diet or regular. Coke is a flavor, not a generic term for soda\pop.

I know people who still call all consoles a 'Nintendo' a few still use 'Atari'.  I'd assume 'Playstation' is becoming or trying to become the new generic 'video game playing machine' term... this may not necessarily be a good thing for Sony.

The "pocket" TV's are damn near impossible to get a stable signal on - ATSC is a Bytch on rabbit ears, and doesn't tolerate multipath (bouncing) very well. We've been running a Mobile TV stream on one of our transmitters for about a year now - if there were only more than a few receivers out there to buy...

CheapEngineer: ATSC is a Bytch on rabbit ears, and doesn't tolerate multipath (bouncing) very well.


Oddly enough, I've been using pre-amped rabbit ears for ATSC reception ever since the switch, and I live in a fringe area, at least 50 miles from most of the transmitters.

Then again, I'm a ham, so I can get away with it because I know antennas.
