What are you talking about?! Those things are great! Not really. I have one, it's terrible. I have been waiting for someone to figure out how to root the Fire phone - now it looks like I might just be stuck with my bad decision. :(
If someone is using a major search engine to search for sites that will give them free stuff using generic terms such as "Free Movies" or "Piracy Sites" they are neither savvy nor serious about it and will most likely obtain some nice free viruses, Trojans and spy ware for their trouble rather than free movies or music.
I don't think that these entities and persons pushing for these new laws even understand how futile, stupid and counterproductive their techniques are. I also think that they vastly underestimate the abilities, skills and intelligence of those that they are fighting against - not to mention their true intentions and motivations for what they do.
The attitude that this behavior can somehow be curtailed in some significant fashion or even stamped out entirely is a ludicrous and impossible pipe dream. They have turned it into a zero sum game of all or nothing and everyone is worse off because of it.
I respectfully request a "Report dumbass comment" button be added alongside the "Insightful" "Funny" and "Report" buttons.
Blue you are a fool. The unintended consequences and collateral damage that this bill would bring if passed are far too numerous to count and if you don't know this or worse, don't care. Then I have no sympathy at all for any of you when it all comes crashing down on you.
The isp's can't even give us a bandwidth meter that works and reliably tracks our CAPPED services and we have seen numerous examples of how clueless the entertainment industry is about technology and their ham fisted clueless attempts to control it!
There is no way that they have come up with a reliable and ACCURATE system to don what they claim it does. The proof is in the pudding and the simple fact that they dont want tp provide pudding to anyone speaks volumes.
If they truly had something they would be shouting it to the rooftops and demonstrating some sort of verifiable data to everyone they could in triumph!
