does it work on all OSs at the same quality, at the same time? how about anything currently hooked up to my (dumb) LCD TV? PS3, cable box, Linux X86_64 server, wii(if i want SD content on my HD TV)?
Why should I let the fragile plastic disks get used daily by my small children (both boys, 5.5 and 4) when I can simply rip them and send them over the network to the PS3, or play them though XBMC on the "server" hooked up to the TV.
Anyways, I've got a few of the blu-ray + dvd + download thing, they only work on windows usually, and sometimes OSX.
I refuse to buy new hardware at this point, just about everything is less than 2-3 years old. If the new system(content management) doesn't work on that equipment, it might as well not exist for at least 5 more years. It had also better work on linux, in 64bit, using modern linux techs, (alsa, VDPAU/VA-API, pulseaudio, recent kernels, etc).
I would just like to point out that the toaster is likely injection molded plastic outside casing. That is not something that lends itself to autocad (2D). That is a job for a 3D package with some additional software. Think more like $4000-$10000 a seat on a $4000 computer.
Anyways, just my seat of "autocad LT" (lightweight autocad version), is around $1200.
So up your software costs for CAD packages a bit and add something in for the desktop workstation video cards.
Hmm the interesting thing here is that the USPTO only is covering the copies submitted. If you have a PDF copy of it on your mail server, that needs to be evaluated separately doubly so if it is in the backup of your mail server as well.
The assumption the scientific journals are making is that since everyone uses pdf these days, that there is likely at least 1 copy hanging around on a computer somewhere, or filed away in a folder containing a copy of the whole application for record keeping reasons. Since that specific copy wasn't submitted to the USPTO it needs a license as if it were any other "normal" copy...
how about we start a chain e-mail asking everyone to pick 2 products to send to 10 people in separate emails. Each of these (20) emails would then need a completed form. now around round 3 or 4, i suspect that the fax machine of Lowes will stop working and they may change their mind on this policy.
No this is more like getting the owner of a storage unit facility with 300,000,000 lockers over 300 acres, to go to each and every unit each time the owner is putting something in or taking something out. He needs to have one hand on the speed dial for the police, and the other on his tazer to stop the user if he has something that might maybe be illegal(even the owner has a legal reason to have the thing)
Now imagine the owner sees the renter put a gun into the unit. In some cases guns are illegal. Gun makers want the owner to seize(and destroy) the gun on sight, report the renter to them and the police, and sort it out later. It may turn out several weeks later the user files the correct paperwork with the correct people and finally is told that the gun that was seized(and destroyed) can be returned, and the renter gets back a pile of metal shavings.
Now imagine that the owner has millions of renters, and that each visits several times a day and some of them bring their friends along. See the practical issue with a system that requires that storage unit owners to escort each renter, and how that makes each renter dislike the whole system? Some of those renters may decide that renting a room in someone's basement is an easier way to store their stuff.

I would already like something like this. Netflix seems to lump every documented into the same group. I want to watch nature and science docs, not "look at me while i do my final art project" or "watch me become a fat slob while eating at fast food restaurants".
Anyways, I agree, the filter and find new content will/should be the future of Hollywood. Along with the general financing(less and less money is needed these day though).
