Taking a look at the how, where and why of bundling in 2014. Where we're up to and where we've come from over time and why were I bundling today, I'd pause for thought before agreeing.

Last I looked Valve updated their rules to ask you not to make explicit promises to avoid getting in the sort of pickle DF did with the roadmap. r n r nThey also advise against entering EA with a product that 's too early in dev as in, there should ...

No, no, no. If you bring up sexist or misogynist points then you are a sexist and a misogynist. Many people go through their days without being accused of being either sexist or misogynist, MOST people go through their days without it because they don 't really feel the need ...
