“$ 399.” And just like that, the PlayStation 4 made the first official move to combat Microsoft’s once-feared domination in the video game industry. Whereas the Xbox One E3 conference was full of generic FPS and sports games, not to mention the ridiculous $ 499 price tag, Sony’s keynote featured a variety of games. Eschewing this current generation’s abundance of shooting games, the PS4 keynote put the spotlight on games that were not only brighter and more vibrant in an aesthetic way, but also from a variety of genres from action/adventure to platformers to, yes, FPS and shooters. While the PlayStation 4 was officially announced a few months ago, the system itself was still under wraps for whatever reason; Sony must have wanted to build up as much hype as they could possible, as they unveiled the console’s new look to moderate fanfare. Honestly, it looks like a mix between an Xbox One and a black Wii or two PS2s glued together, but hey, gaming consoles are meant for playing games, not winning design awards, right? Oh, the games… Sony highlighted a few exclusive games, such as inFamous: Second Son and Killzone: Shadowfall . However, the biggest reveal for Sony’s conference was the announcement that the long-awaited game, Final Fantasy Versus XIII has been re-buffed and re-titled to the more appropriate Final Fantasy XV . As if the surprise wasn’t enough, a proper sequel to the Kingdom Hearts franchise, Kingdom Hearts III , was anno

Cost Cutting: RNC Chair Asks Obama Not To Dine Out With GOP Senators — Offers To Order Them Pizza Instead
Source: www.mediaite.com – Tuesday, April 09, 2013
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus issued a statement about President Obama ‘s dinner with Senate Republicans, which is planned for Wednesday night. While Priebus appreciated that the bipartisan breaking of the bread, he had one bone to pick: Spending money on eating out at a restaurant. Instead, he helpfully offered to order them some pizza. “I’m glad to see that as he enters his fifth year in office, President Obama is finally trying to reach across the aisle in the form of dinners with Senate Republicans,” Priebus said in a statement . “Since the president has been complaining loudly about the cutbacks they’ve had to make at the White House—including tours for schoolchildren—due to the sequester, it only seems appropriate that they avoid the considerable security expenses of dining at an upscale restaurant.” In a struggling economy, many families are cutting back, and thus it’s fitting that our leaders do the same, he argued. Noting that he wasn’t invited to the dinner, Priebus still offered to pitch in. “In fact, I’d like to offer to order pizza for them and have it delivered to the White House. I know I’m not invited to dinner, but as RNC Chairman I’m happy to do my part to foster a spirit of bipartisanship if it means we can tackle the debt and deficit—and achieve real spending and tax reform. If we’re lucky, maybe the pizza will serve to illuminate an important economic point for President Obama: instead of redistributing the sli

In Oklahoma, a startling example of how price transparency could disrupt health care bureaucracies as we know them. No wonder Illinois is a Certificate-of-Need state – it prevents any real attempt at disrupting the status quo. Still, as direct costs to patients rise, I predict this model will become more common.
Disgusting!… Obama White House Continues to Mislead on Cost of O-Care & Media Continues to Give Them a Pass

In March 2010 leading democrats and their lackeys in the state-run media were “ just giddy ” to report that they crunched some numbers and found the nationalized health care bill they were pushing would reduce the deficit by $ 138 billion. It was a lie. Democrats knew it was a lie … But, after several backroom deals they rammed the bill through Congress anyway. Then in May of 2010 the CBO corrected the numbers and said Obamacare will cost taxpayers at least $ 115 billion more than promised. Democrats pulled a fast one on the American public. Republican Senators pointed out the deceit in a 2010 video: Democrats promised that Obamacare would cost $ 940 billion when they rammed it through Congress. The actual cost has gone up with each revision. The latest CBO estimate says ObamaTax will cost $ 2.6 billion nearly three times as much as Democrats predicted. Despite these facts the Obama White House continues to mislead Americans on the cost of Obamacare… And the media allows them to get about with it. The Examiner reported: House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, notwithstanding, the White House would rather go over the fiscal cliff than touch any part of Obamacare, President Obama’s spokesman indicated today. “The Affordable Care Act reduces the deficit considerably,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters today. “I would simply point out to you that the Supreme Court has spoken, the American people have spoken, congressional

Apple has reportedly shelled out a whopping £13 million (USD$ 21, AUD$ 20) to license the clock design for iOS 6 . The clock was designed by an employee of the Swiss Federal Railway service in 1944 and has been used in train stations around the country ever since. Following the launch of iOS in September, the network complained that Apple had used the identical design, once honoured by the Museum of Modern Art in New York, without permission. "We're rather proud that a brand as important as Apple is using our design," said a spokesperson for the service back in September. Time is money A month ago, it was revealed that Apple and the Swiss had come to terms on a licensing package, although the details remained confidential. Now a report from French news agency FNP claims that Apple coughed up a £13 million lump sum for permission to use the clock in iOS 6. Surely, that has to be the most expensive clock ever?
