Ooh: Valve's Mystery DotA Game Leakorised? | Rock, Paper, Shotgun
I’ve read it as “Day of the Atlantis”. You know: A cross-breed mutant between Day of the Tentacle and Fate of Atlantis. ;) I’m with John on that one. I never played the game. It’s some kind of tower defence mod for Warcraft 3, right? Never played a single game in that genre… Tower Defense.. Defense Grid.. Grid Wars… They just blended together in my perception during my gaming hiatus of 2004-2009, and with me neither owning a 360 nor caring about dual-stick-shmups, my subconcious leapt to the totally rational conclusion of ignoring the tower defense genre as a whole. So, reading “DotA” at the ... market research, surveys and trends

Steve Jobs grits teeth, solves the iPhone 4 'crisis'
Apple CEO Steve Jobs didn't have much fun Friday morning. But by admitting there was a problem with the iPhone 4 and providing a free solution, he likely defused a growing problem. (Credit: Josh Lowensohn/CNET) Apple CEO Steve Jobs likely quieted the outrage over the antenna issues surrounding the iPhone 4 , but he sure didn't have fun doing it. A clearly annoyed Jobs took the stage at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino Friday to announce that all iPhone 4 users would be receiving a free case to solve reception issues caused by the phone's exterior-antenna design . Apple's first response to the outcry ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

He is a political science professor with apparently no mathematical background. Yet, he professes to have developed a computer program that goes beyond the current state of Game Theory and is able to forecast the future with 90% accuracy.

Whenever anyone proclaims he (or his computer program) can predict the future with 90% accuracy especially with something as complex as foreign affairs outcomes red flags go up in my mind. That's especially ...
