I have bought PC games in the last year
When it gets cheap enough we should scan the genome of all babies at birth?
First one from this - which doesn't seem to be an April Fools - apparently EA have made Origin download only, they won't be selling games on disk any more at all. Seems that 99% of people were already download-only. Personally, I can't remember the last time I bought a game that wasn't download-only.
Second one via this. Which has an interesting list of considerations to be taken into account. Personally, I think that the research possibilities are amazing, and so long as privacy is well guarded I think that the benefits will greatly outweigh the costs.
