    Ah, that would explain it
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Less than a day after a lawsuit alleging discrimination and sexual harassment was brought against it by a federal agency, Activision Blizzard has agreed to settle the case for $18 million. That's less than a half-percent of Activision Blizzard's total 2020 revenue.

    While the filing confirms that Activision Blizzard was cooperative with its nearly three-year investigation, no adequate agreement to eliminate workplace harassment and offer appropriate relief to affected employees could be reached after "extensive conciliation discussions."

    In addition to creating the $18 million fund, terms of the settlement also require Activision Blizzard to overhaul its company practices, policies, and training procedures on discrimination, harassment, and retaliation and maintain compliance with the agreement, and will be subject to future audits from the EEOC.
    That showed them!
    Hopefully the SEC burns them to the ground.

    I doubt it, you can't bully the poor job creators. We'd all be communists if it wasn't for their sacrifice!

    Twitch was hacked and a massive dump on information was released.

    Payouts to top streamers, Amazon's Steam competitor shop "Vapor" and much more.

    Not sure if I go with the "hacked" theory, given the statement made by the leaker and the fact what was leaked in this first dump (which implies a follow-up), e.g. the complete Twitch source code back to its beginnings, proprietary SDKs and internal AWS services used by Twitch etc.

    This sounds more like some (former?) disgruntled employee leaking stuff.

    None of the above, it seems, just another typical misconfiguration that exposed the data/access to the public and someone stumbling over it.

    In an advisory posted yesterday at 10:30 pm PT, Twitch has blamed the data exposure on a "server configuration change that was subsequently accessed by a malicious third party."

    I don't buy that for a second. One doesn't "accidentally expose the entire organisation source/data/financials to the internet" with a single configuraiton cahnge, all that data wouldn't be in one palce for starters.

    quote plausible given the poor infrastructure decisions made leading to similar leaks over the last couple of decades.

    Now, if we want to go down the "inside job" lane, then that "single" config change may have been extremely hard to make, but single nonetheless.

    If only Amazon, Twitch owners, had some kind of a service that renders on-prem stuff obsolete...

    Not gaming related directly, but I guess it turns real life into that 1990s VR dream we all share and love

    Microsoft to acquire Activision Blizzard
    https://www.pcgamer.com/uk/microsoft...sion-blizzard/

    Activision is on sale atm..
    I doubt MS will tolerate the BS they have done the last few years.

    $67B (~611B SEK) is pretty much 50% of overall budget for Sweden in 2022 (~1200B SEK).
    Since MS is valued at around $2200B, Sweden is mostly irrelevant in this conversation.

    But we should probably charge more for letting MS and the others build up their DCs here.
    And by charging them more I mean lets given them tax free electricity instead.

    Heard a strange comment about this in the radio news this morning. Two sentences stood out to me, of which I think the first is BS.

    1) "Experts agree that the Metaverse is the future"

    (Old man yells at radio) "Care to name those 'experts', eh?"
    (Old man concludes)"Most likely 'financial analysts'..."


    2) "With this acquisition, MS becomes the 3rd largest game publisher." (Also mentioned in the linked article)

    That's quite a jump start into the top of the league. I guess a MS Game Pass has become a lot more attractive all of a sudden - assuming the price tag won't go up at all/too much when adding Activision's catalogue.
