I can't abide paying for Hulu. If I'm paying, I shouldn't have to watch ads.
Also, I really hate how nearly every show on Hulu has some different "window" of watching. If I'm paying, don't ever show me "clips," only full episodes. If I'm paying, *always* show me back seasons as well as all the episodes from this season.
The one month I tried it, I got extremely annoyed with "you can only watch the revolving last x episodes of show y, but you can watch ALL of show z."
Instead, we have the non-pay Hulu streaming through XBMC with the ads stripped out. Best Daily Show/Colbert experience ever.
If it became "Hulu for TV, Netflix for movies, no ads on either" each at ~$10/mo with no blackout of TV content (old episodes, all current season) I'd subscribe to both and never look back.
If I buy one, it won't be for the games. I'm waiting to see if it makes a better "media center" than Xbox (won't pay for Gold), AppleTV (have to jailbreak to really stream from our giant hard drives) or any of the other options short of buying a full computer.
I'm keeping an eye on it, and on the possible SteamBox.
It's because the CFAA is what was being used to prosecute him, bringing that particular law into the limelight.
We have a lot of laws that get created as a reaction to something (Megan's Law, etc), and this is a new thing to react to.
It doesn't matter, really, WHY he killed himself. CFAA is largely a "bad law," and really should be fixed. The main argument is that our laws shouldn't make felons of otherwise honest people (not necessarily talking about Swartz here).
There's an interesting book on the subject: Three Felonies a Day (http://www.threefeloniesaday.com/)
