what do you need free, don't you already get free Health Care?

There's no free lunch. That health-care has to be funded by taxes. Either increase tax, cut spending in other sectors, reduce funding for the health-care to extend coverage, dig into a hole with loans, or a combination of all.

Its a damn legal issue about international contests like this. If they gave them as a "gift" it may get by, but could come back and bite them in the a** later.

That's why Danny "Millions" Williams, premier of Newfoundland and Labrador, came to the US for heart surgery. But don't worry, soon we will all be going south for care too, to Mexico, thanks Mr. Obama.

So, when is Tom's going to be smart and start opening up contests to Canada. Our laws state no purchase is needed for contests, the only province to have weird laws when it comes to contests is Quebec, that's why when companies do contests for Canada, 99.9% of the time Quebec is excluded!

Uh... I've never experienced Canadian healthcare in particular, but generally if you go to the emergency room for a "minor scrape or whatever," you're going to be prioritized lower than people with, you know, actual emergencies. It's called triage.

Canada contest law requires an element of skill to be included. Since Tom's contests are based on luck, they would be illegal in Canada.

Anandtech uses a multiple choice question with an answer that's very easy to obtain.

Don't put ALL of your Steam games on a SSD, just the ones that you want\need to load ultra fast. Steam now lets you pick an install location for each game. (Yes, you can finally install to other drives without junction tricks!) Of course, if you can fit ALL of your games on the drive, you might as well.

[citation][nom]ttcboy[/nom]Thank you Tom !!! for ignoring the International members and supporters. Shipping price is too much for u guys to handle ??[/citation]

They're handing out 8 600$ hard drives.
Sure shipping might not be that expensive, but they're already dishing out quite a bit of cash to hand out nice stuff for free.
