    "Firefox 69 will have Flash disabled by default" As it should be, nothing to see here.

    It works like this: Apple needs Qualcomm modems. Qualcomm is willing to supply Apple with said modems. They sit down to do a deal, whereby usually the company that needs a given component says "OK, we need amount of modems for our new iPhones, can you supply what we need?" The supplier says, "Yes, we can cover your requirements. Here's how much we're going to charge for the modems in quantity." The company that needs the modems says "OK, we'll do business with you, but before we do, you need to pay us $1 billion or else we're going to go ask some other supplier to help us." The supplier of course feels pretty screwed on the deal, what with them having to fork over $1 billion before the company that needs their modems signs the contract which is of course worth billions more. It's basically Apple being greedy and spiteful towards Qualcomm knowing that Qualcomm doesn't really have much choice: sacrifice $1 billion up front practically in cash against the loss of billions more potential revenue later on. It's not good business practice at all, but it's certainly the type of underhanded crap Apple is obviously capable of.

    Now if we can only get Blizzard to split off from them as well... and ya know, make Blizz Games great again? Hope this also means good things for Destiny. It's a decent game, but that season pass crap really put me off.

    Flash is still alive while Jobs is dead. There is a douchey comment.

    Oh, quit yer whining. Firefox is open source. If you really, REALLY care about this issue, get a copy of the source and make it work the way you want. Nobody's stopping you.

    It's hard to believe Windows 7 is almost 10 years old, how time flies. I remember the betas been that stable Windows 7 was my main OS many months before the RTM build was finalised. As much as I like Windows 10 and have used it since July 2015 i'll always have a soft spot for 7 and XP.

    It's not just your head though, a vulnerability in Flash could affect your entire organisation. Change & adapt to modern standards or find a new job.

    Fork the software if you don’t want a company to decide how it works. I mean, you won’t, but there is your solution. Funny you say that considering I already have a fork of firefox Good, now you can fork off

    I agree. Less option is less, not more. And I want to decide if something is safe or not. For example, Newsground and Kongregate is full flash because: - flash is still superior to HTML - html5 is still a mess. ROFLMAO!!! That is the funniest post on the Internet! HAHAHA... Thank you for that, Brony!

    Hell, while we're at it, can we make neglectful parents a "disorder" and get some counseling for parents who cannot be bothered to... ya know, be involved in their kids lives? It's like people realized they can throw a tablet or game console to their kid and have them occupied for hours so they don't have to watch them. Then they get upset when the behavior their child exhibits isn't what they desire. If a dog tears up your house because you didn't feed or take it outside, is it really the dog's fault? Just sayin... People out here treating their kids like animals.

    "Square Enix has decided to take this route to delay spoilers leaking online as the video itself will not be included on disc. The development team had been planning this in advance so this was a conscious decision and not one of necessity due to lack of time." LOL they're now purposely selling incomplete games and charging full price, ridiculous... Can you imagine buying a book of 300 pages only to have the final 50 pages missing in case someone buys it and reveals the ending early and having to proove you've read the first part to get the missing pages weeks after it has released?

    Sorry, Chooseco LLC, but trademark is NOT a patent. Netflix was looking to use the term "Choose Your Own Adventure" in the marketing name/description on advertisements. Chooseco said "nyet" so Netflix did without. Chooseco, you do NOT own the exclusive usage of those four words as written in any copyrighted creative artwork (script)… nor the mere concept ("patent"). In short, Chooseco's legal counsel are idiots and bilking Chooseco for unnecessary legal fees in the name of "defending your rights"... hoping to recoup some quick money from Netflix just to shut them up. I hope Netflix has Newegg's lawyers to kill this sort of trolling. The district courts will promptly dismiss this lawsuit as frivolous, and Netflix will gladly force the plaintiffs to prove that the trademark was tarnished (read: no copyright or patent violations applicable).

    Oh man, how much i'd like to see these damn companies to compete between better battery technologies, rather than who has the most cameras!

    The point is that you can have a tablet sized screen yet carry it in your pocket. You can decide how big you want the screen depending on what you are doing.

    I actually like the fact that they're forcing this and I'm sure I'm far from alone. I'm willing to reduce my ability to do something so that in return it sends a message to everyone to stop supporting the god awful platform that is Flash. Sometimes messages need to be sent.

    i would say make a model that gets rid of the front camera, not everyone is into taking selfies.

    So, why is Apple crying out loud then? They despite being so rich begged for $1B from Qualcomm so why wouldn't Qualcomm wanted some exclusivity in return? Seems like Apple not only wanted $1B but also would like the freedom to walk away with it without any strings attached. Poor Apple!
