Re: Don’t buy Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare from the Windows 10 Store

Seems this is down to Activision: Update #1: A source familiar to the matter recently informed us that the decision to segregate Windows 10 Store and Win32 PC platform players is entirely on Activision.

Definitely a business decision that will benefit Apple. Fun fact: Apple owns the #1 wireless headphone company Apple introduced its first-ever pair of wireless headphones, called the AirPods. They sell for $159 (and seem to have the sound quality of the $29 EarPods they’re modeled after). Apple also...

Re: How to make Portion Bread from Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Matcha powder, enjoy the smooth taste of lead :mrgreen:
a cup of matcha may contain as much as 30 times more lead than a cup of green tea. Therefore, they recommend drinking no more than one cup daily, and not serving it to children.

Loved the first one, but years since I have seen it, and it is a 1982 movie, not sure how it would hold up now, as we are all fed action movies with cgi special effects. Ford is showing his age now as well. It was based in the year 2019, so we better hurry up and get those flying cars. http://www.im...

They definitely seem to be pressuring people to buy now or warning them, depending how you see it. I know some people that will now not buy it because of that and will wait it out for a cheaper price. I am not one of them, I will get in early and hope for the best :think: I have had my monies worth ...
