I have several of those controllers. The dpad isn’t that great, but I do like how it can be more pronounced than the regular controllers. This dpad looks like it’s still complete rubbish. How have they not understood that yet? I’m so tired of pressing left or right to switch utilities in BF3 only to find my gun on single-shot fire mode (down on the dpad) during the next firefight. One of many endless frustrations with the terrible dpad design.
Not sure if you’re being sarcastic, but I’ll offer a bit of insight.
Syria has four “backbone” cables.. one runs under the sea and the remaining three over the land.
Damage or malfunction of an “optic cable” (note the singular use of the word cable) would have slowed down internet traffic to and from the country… not crippled it entirely.
Coupled with the similar downtime we saw November 2012, this statement from the Syrian government is questionable at best and an outright lie at worst.
And, last time I checked, optical cable typically gets replaced, not repaired… not to mention Syria has four main cables (one under the sea, three over land) that carry their connection to the internet, so a problem with one would not have brought traffic to a complete halt.
