I'd like to let the US government know that arresting #snowden  before any actions are taken against the #nsa (who also acted illegally) is unacceptable.  Unfortunately, only the NSA is currently reading this and they tend not to share information about their programs with congress.

I am not OK with this.
Hong Kong authorities are asked to arrest leaker of documents that revealed secret surveillance program.

I've just come across this set of OpenGL ES tutorials yesterday.  While they are for OpenGL ES 1.x, it is the best series of tutorials on the subject I have come across so far.  The author makes sure to keep the examples simple, highlighting a single point.

Maybe if the site gets more traffic, the author will port the tutorials to OpenGL ES 2.0.

Very true, but many of the tutorials use unsupported functions of OpenGL ES (e.g. glBegin()/glEnd()).

PS4:  Cheaper price, region unlocked, no DRM issues
Xbone:  Kinect 2.0, better exclusive lineup, better specs

As much as I want to believe that Kinect 2.0 is really better, I'm currently leaning toward the PS4 as the E3 winner so far.

I know.  Ubi has quite a few games coming soon that I've got my eyes on.

Amazing story!  I am not sure whose idea it was to drop off the boxes and not really give any instructions, but it really says something about kids ability to learn new things!  #kidsaresmart #olpc
