Yeah I know, stupid dream.
I can't remember the last time I used CDs.
I know that a lot of people are still suffering from slow internet connections. And that a lot are not.

You can have all the CDs you want. As long as I get a Mac App Store version : )

Well you can have a nice always online App Store version with horrible gameplay and honking trees all you want.

This issue is mostly with Office updates from Microsoft. They like to reset security settings to default. Few settings on a computer I use are "default".

Oh, I see where you're coming from now. I don't use MS Office simply because I don't usually have enough money for stuff like that. So I can't say what my update experience on that is like.

I have to agree that windows update sucks. Apple make take longer, but their update system never needs its cache cleared out. It's still not as nice as Ubuntu's, though.

Do you alter settings? Some updates are worse, but with Office 2007 I actually started blocking Outlook updates. I was tired of redoing my settings every month. v2013 I haven't had a problem, yet.

Not sure on the Mac, I use Office there so seldom, now. I'm usually logged in via Remote if I have to work from home, using whatever crap they have on our server.

EA stealing money from all pre-order Mac users

EA games has charged Mac users $60 to purchase SimCity without releasing the game after several delays and are now selling the game @ $ 25 as of yesterday (26/8/2013). They refuse to provide a refund as they state:

"I can't help you in this situation as all the pricing are decided by the marketing team only."

Mac users are now paying more for a product they have yet to receive!

Can EA get even more corrupt than this. Extremely bad business ethics bordering on theft.
