You were on your own as soon as you could care for yourself. It worked for millions of years of evolution (6,000 if you don't believe in evolution), and it is only in the last ~150 that have we have had this belief. Maybe we need some A/B testing here to see which is better.
Nautical stuffs! Anchors! Boat things! They *must* be similar because they are about the Oooooocean and there can only be one beer about the Oooooocean sold in Canada. Duh. If Pacifico doesn't like it have them use one of the other 20 or 30 oceans.
for the most part, and I won't be blocking or filtering them since I like Techdirt. I even click on the ads and purchase things from time to time.
Generally speaking, I despise autoplay videos (especially that one that played every-damn-where for two weeks, never did find out what they were selling because I hate them with the heat of a thousand suns).
I dislike pages that Constantly Freaking Resize as ads are served. Hellooooo! I'm trying to read the words and you are moving them around the page like a crazed llama.
As long as Mike, Michael, Tim, Timothy, Karl, Leigh and (the sadly underrepresented) Glyn keep these abominations off of the page I'm cool. Keep up the good work.
covering the public buildings and people in public areas I am allowed to capture photons bouncing off of their shizzle and use it however I see fit. I also have the right to use those captured photons as I see it.
so RICO doesn't apply, but isn't there some sort of anti-collusion law up there? It seems extremely suspicious that all of these companies revoked their exceptions within two months. Let's send the execs to jail for a while, that'll loosen their jib.
Just asking why the project thought it was needed for a short distance wireless video link. I don't believe my ChromeCast has one, for example, I don't use DRM for the other ways I connect devices to TVs.
I did RTFA and I fail to see the benefit here. Netflix (the given example) doesn't require DRM from my computer to the display. I'm not even certain how DRM would prevent 'piracy' as I am unlikely to try to send a copy of the signal to my neighborhood - given than the device is a relatively low power receiver and, one presumes, there is already a 1:1 pairing system. At least they are returning everyone's money.
Do you have curtains, shades or blinds on your windows at home? Of course you do, because you value your privacy.
Do you leave your snail mail out on the porch for your neighbors to look through? Of course you don't, because some things you do, and some purchases you make, aren't anyone's business but your own, and you value your privacy.
Do you post your SSN, and all of your email addresses and phone numbers online? Of course not, because you value your privacy. Would you let your mother post her own info online? Of course not, because she values her privacy.
Inauguration Day. Such lofty goals. Such high hopes. Turns out that every new President is just like his successor, morally corrupt and willing to compromise American values - not to mention the Constitution - at the drop of a hat. Sad.
WTF is the purpose of auto-looping, other than to increase the "loop count" so prominently displayed on the video? Even the pause button provides only temporary respite (or maybe it restarted in response to some keyboard command). Also, why does the thing have to be so very large? Where am I, CNN?
