Hardware, Embedded Systems If there's one over-used buzzword currently making the rounds in the technology industry, it's 'post-PC world' - or the notion that desktops and laptops are a dying breed. Todd Bradley, executive vice president of HP's printing and personal systems group, thinks this is a nonsensical notion - and he's right.

Uhhh...how EXACTLY is Steam a "walled garden" when cracking it is as simple as going to gamecopyworld, no different than with any other retail game?

Now with XBLA you are correct because the act of cracking it would probably screw up the install (unless you did a hardware hack) but there is a free tool out there that will let you set multiple Steam game folders (for those with SSDs) so you could have your cracked games and your non cracked games and switch between them no problem with Steam, although why you'd actually want to crack when the sales make it cheaper than renting the thing.

Heck anybody who hasn't decided if they want Saints Row 3 can go download it free on Steam and play it all weekend, its a whole $14 if you want to keep it, fun game.
