Originally Posted by will.No matter what anyone says, it is most definately not just down to the parents and the person themselves to monitor their online time. Take any addiction, people with them often don't want to quit. People arround them give up trying to force them. The manufacture has to take some form of responsibility. Cigarette packets now have writen warnings and threats, alcahol has the same in some countries, soon there will be graphic images. All because someone made a product thats function is to become adicitve and provide income to the manufacturer.
(maybe too close to the way the French really drive

First there was SLI, adding another video processor.
Then came the X-fi, which is a rather powerful sound processor.
And then came the Physics card, and the ATI and nVidia physics-on-GPU systems.
And after that came Quad-SLI!
And now comes an AI processor.
I don't know about you, but I'm running out of PCI and PCI-express slots...
