I guess this may be off topic, but its no wonder so many Apple users of iPhone 4s-5 hate it when someone buys a new Samsung phone. When I told my iPhone friends I had bought a new Android Samsung Galaxy phone, they were so disappointed. A couple even threatened to delete me from their contacts list. Those iPhone users hate it when your phone can do tricks theirs can't. Especially when they are trying to find themselves with the new Apple maps, and Siri keeps saying, "You are the one that is lost, don't blame me."
When you get to be my age, there isn't a lot that surprises you anymore. What many fail to see here, is that RIAA is not really the problem. Its the idiots that get elected to all of the offices that make these rules allowing RIAA to harass people like this, that should be the concern. Some say boycott, some say read a book. When the real answer is VOTE, and get all of your friends to VOTE too. If you want the rules to change, then don't let people get elected that are aligned with RIAA, and their likes. If you got good ideas, and can change things for the better, then step up, and run for office. No joke, we need good people to run for offices of power, because the only way we can change things is by having the power to bring about change.
