“Thank you for playing. The servers supporting Light Cycle Multiplayer are no longer in service. This update removes the multiplayer option and optimizes the single player experience. We apologize for the inconvenience. The fight for the ultimate GRID Game champion continues. Good luck program.”

You know journalism has hit rock bottom when there’s a whole slew of news posts around the web either complaining about the new iPad not being called the iPad 3 or iPad HD or saying the fact that it’s called the iPad and nothing else signals the end of Apple or the downfall at least.
