    At least MS is doing right with their Insider Program, thousands of testers to listen to, months before releasing something to the rest of the public.

    Seems finally working together

    “IS is depending more on children for suicide operations. And we saw the effect of that, since 10 percent of IS members killed in the fight for Hasakeh city were children,” Abdel Rahman said.

    That could lead to Hague tribunal

    Since then, Abdel Rahman told AFP, “we haven’t seen any major IS victories with the exception of the battle at Palmyra. There has been a continuous retreat for IS forces since February”.

    Well, there's Ramadi in Iraq, though they lost Tikrit which is the bigger city.

    But yeah, in Syria there's only Palmyra, while losing in other places.

    Air strikes by the international coalition fighting IS in Syria and Iraq have also contained the group, he said.

    Coalition airstrikes are now attacking defensive barriers around Raqa. Could be precursor to a Kurdish advance, although how would the Kurds feel about occupying lands that are historically Sunni and not Kurdish

    North Korea is the one who doesn't want to make an Iran-style deal. The ball is on their court.

    US volleyball women had a good week. In addition to winning 2015 FIVB Grand Prix, their other squad in the Toronto Pan-American Games (equivalent of the Asian Games) won gold beating Brazil 3-0.

    Unfortunately, Japan finished 0-5 in the Grand Prix finals.

    Sony Corp. and Microsoft Corp. both have announced plans to manufacture game consoles in the Shanghai zone with Chinese partners.

    Plans? This article is months late. XB1 has already been released there in Sept 2014 and PS4 in Jan 2015.

    But it's Burning Bush saying Russia is not involved.

    Directly, on the battlefield - not involved. Logistic support - yes.

    Imagine, right about now, Assad is wishing their ally is doing more for a true friend.

    Yes, Russia space program went thru some tough times. Let's just hope Russia doesn't forget its space-exploring roots since we don't hear much from their astrologers. Can never have enough of those.

    They should still help their allies; that's what's friends for

    @lostrune2

    And they do it. Why Syrian air force is still flying, what do you think?

    But it's Burning Bush saying Russia is not involved.

    And while million dollar "precision" bombs are being wasted, seemingly unable to take out Toyota Tundra pickup trucks, 1 in 4 American children grow up in poverty.

    How can ya talk about waste when targeting remote pickup trucks would be a bigger waste?!

    Hours worth of premium jet fuel, million-dollar bomb, on a $10k truck with a few militants.

    They're making better use of their bombs rather than targeting mere pickups.

    Remember, would ya rather use that bomb on a command post or bridge or a pickup that ya can just steal another one on any street? And there's hundreds if not thousands of those trucks! So multiply those million-dollar bombs by hundreds or thousands! So now which one is costing a lot more for much lower returns? So don't talk waste when you'd be the one wasting those million-dollar bombs.

    Seriously? First woman in space (Tereshkova, 1963), first man in open space (Leonov, 1965), first lunar rover (Lunokhod, 1970), extensive Venus research program, permanent space stations, very successful present program - nothing to be really proud of? Or may be you think again?

    OK, then move 1961 to 1970; still awhile ago. And it is successful, but nowadays it's more like sustaining. Haven't really done much beyond that. Europe sending crafts to Mars; heck even Japan going to comets sampling dust. Russians have some of the smartest astrologers, but world haven't heard much breakthroughs lately.

    They're preparing to go to Mars

    On what?

    They're working on that too. They don't expect to go there by the end of a decade like they did with the moon (and they didn't have a mooncraft at the start of that too, but at the end they developed one).

    Mitsubishi doing in America what US auto-makers doing in Japan.

    It's to be expected when you're selling that low.

    So Mitsubishi is bypassing America, as US auto-makers are bypassing Japan, in favor of more lucrative markets in Asia.

    Smartphones becoming a commodity. Like with tablets - used to be ya need to spend US$500 or more to get a decent tablet; now ya can get a good one for a fifth of the price. Same thing will eventually happen to smartphones too - those who spend US$500 or more on a smartphone will be seen as someone burning a whole thru their pockets.

    Separate the watch and the phone. Doesn't mean that they can't work together, just that they can work independently. There's a saying in the tech sector: if ya want something to be standard, then set it free.

    Turkey also did their own bombing run against ISIS to avenge the death of their soldier via ISIS' hands.

    Why isn't Russia helping Syria? Did they have a falling out?

    Probably because the Russians are too smart to get embroiled in sectarian warfare in the Middle East.

    They should still help their allies; that's what's friends for.

    We're talking about pickup trucks in a desert here. What's the freakin hold up?

    Hahaha, but they can't hit targets, isn't that right too?
