Like not being able to purchase a game at a lower price in an other…
Valve just announced a new cool upcoming feature.
The Steam Family Sharing will allow you to share your Steam games with others on up to 10 different computers. That means, people will be able to play your games while using their own Steam accounts, on your local or a different computer.

Update 8/27/2013: Last 24 hours on the Humble Origin Bundle before the sale ends.
If you want to own a bunch of AAA EA-titles, and find comfort that your money will help people in need, here is your chance.

If you bought the bundle for Sims3 check back too. They replaced some Sims 3 keys, and fixed the problems with code redeeming for the Date Night items.

Recently the multiplayer mode of Medal of Honor faced criticism for allowing the player to take the Taliban side, thus killing US soldiers. I won’t comment the moral ethics to portray an ongoing conflict nor if it wise too, but interesting to read is what real soldiers think that have to face the Taliban everyday.
