    I saw this earlier...

    Parents are going to have a harder time telling kids they are wasting their time with video games.


    Kudos to the nerds! They got their revenge at Adams College....

    Very interesting. I bet this has implications for other research projects as well.

    This is what the article conveys perhaps Pharma companies should offer prizes/bounties to 'teams' who find valuable information...;)

    Gaming.

    Another reason PCs > Macs.

    I don't think that's even remotely debatable. Most, except the very biggest titles, aren't even made for Mac.

    Ha, well of course PC gamers would be able to map out a virus. Mac users rarely encounter them:rolleyes:

    Couple this to their work in training for the coming zombie apocalypse by way of games like Resident Evil, Left 4 Dead and about 56 million others and you'll see just how much gamers do for humanity.

    FWI I have never got a virus on my mac. I have had several on my PC and some of them came from this very site a year or so ago. Others here complained about that too.
