Are video game restrictions in need of changing/updating (violence)


After all of the school shootings and gun tragedies, everyone is pointing fingers. Video games are taking a lot of heat, and I believe they are singled out (it's more than one thing that got us in this mess). Still I believe there should be a change in the rules and restrictions, age related mostly, to better this issue....

The act of pirating copyrighted materials online should be legal


For this debate, I would like to take the argument that pirating copyrighted materials (music, movies, software, etc.) online should be legal in the U.S., and that the act of pirating materials should not lead to any form of legal punishment. For reference let us define the following: Pirating - to reproduce without authorization especially in infringement of copyright [1] Copyright - the exclusive legal right to reproduce, publish, sell, or distribute the matter and form of something (as...

Mac computers are better than PC's


Before starting my argument, let me clarify. By Mac computers, I mean computers with the Leopard or Snow Leopard operating system (10.5, 10.5.5, or 10.5.6). By PC's, I simply mean computers with Windows XP, Windows, Vista, or Windows 7. Also, I would like to thank my future opponent and wish him good luck. There are many advantages that Mac users can enjoy over PC users. Listed below are a few of them: 1. Macs are designed with "security in mind". Mac OSX is not affected by the myriad...

I will go ahead...

I believe that this search also includes violating your privacy. They (Companies and Government) should not be permitted to snoop through your cameras to purposely catc...
