    I read it this morning and didn't even know who the fuck he was. Nevermind how big of a deal he obviously is.

    Not like the old days when people's heroes were real men. Like saville, Glitter and Harris.

    Jaden Moodie, 14, stabbed to death after he was knocked off moped in London back in January 2019. Ayoub Majdouline, 18, has been charged with murder and possession of a bladed. 4 others were involved.

    Ayoub Majdouline

    Isn't it about time courts employed better artists, or got with the times and allowed photographers to shoot images?

    Apple hints at lower iPhone prices as sales fall

    Anyone who paid Ä1000 for an iPhone is a mug.
    Anyone who pays Ä300+ for a mobile phone is a mug.

    Lecce game called off after about 15 seconds when a clash of heads sent a player into cardiac arrest, straight from kick off. Doesnít look good.

    @Decks

    Paging Decks to the thread...

    More than you wanted to know (or maybe as much as you wanted to know) about the Poo Flip:

    http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/02/meet-the-men-behind-the-viral-poo-flip-video.html

    My heart is filled with a familiar cocktail of pride and shame to know that the flippers are Aussies.

    Interesting article, only to highlight the lengths some people would go to to claim a viral clip is actually theirs. Why would you even want to be associated with something like that?

    Quite a lot of interesting tidbits in EA's latest shareholder call. A couple of observations:

    - Battlefield V is pretty much considered a commercial failure. It shifted 7.3 million copies, but this is a million below expectations.

    - EA are blaming that failure on a couple of things. First, the focus on a singleplayer campaign rather than a battle royale mode. Second, the fact that its delayed release put it head to head against BLOPS3 and RDR2.

    - The first of those factors just sounds like the usual EA "talking down singleplayer" stuff. Battlefield games have historically had poor singleplayer, so if mainly-singleplayer gamers didn't pick up BFV, there's an element of self-fulfilling prophecy in that.

    - The second is more interesting. EA are basically admitting that Battlefield isn't a "top flight" franchise that can go toe to toe with COD and the other big releases in the key November sales window? When they sent Titanfall 2 out to die in that window, its commercial underperformance felt inevitable. But for years now, EA have pushed Battlefield as a "top flight" franchise.

    - They're really, really counting on Anthem being a big hit, with expectations of 5-6 million sales in its first quarter. Is that realistic? Dunno. Reactions to the public demo have been all over the show.

    - EA's mobile titles in general seem to be struggling.

    - FIFA Ultimate Team remains their golden goose.

    - A couple of new indications about the rest of their planned 2019 release lineup. Sounds like we're getting a new Plants vs Zombies shooter and something Titanfall related.

    Who buys BF for the single player? o_O I did enjoy what I played of the stories, but when the game lost my progress on the Nordlys story, I couldn't be arsed replaying.
