Mrs henderson presents bob hoskins

Worst case couldnt everyone just fast forward? That also works for me on everything except the copyright and FBI warnings. Add PS3 to the chapter-skipping list. You say that youve stopped fighting by refusing to buy their products. That, in itself, is a form of passive protest. Unfortunately, as you are but one in a billion, it will have little significant impact, but it is still fighting. If only more people would either a stop buying or b vocally protest, perhaps things will one day change. Without fighting, though, there will never be change. People might be aware of the issue of being unable to skip the anti-piracy message, but many are unaware that there is an alternative. This, sadly, is the product of complacency of the consumer. Ive talked with less knowledgeable people and they tend to feel that the message was required to be put there, so they dont feel that there is any recourse. But most regular consumers are unaware of the presence of DRM on a Blu-ray disc. I spoke with my brother-in-law who is a computer trainer and I was shocked when he said he never knew that there was such a thing. With all the press that DRM gets, most people just simply dont know about it. For most people, it really doesnt matter all that much to them such that they will research it. After all, they buy a DVD, mrs henderson presents bob hoskins play the DVD and theyre happy. With Blu-ray, they buy a disc, they attempt to play the disc and, oh, ummm, it doesnt play. They either assume that there is something wrong with the disc or that it is incompatible. It seems that every manufacturer has that standard party line that some discs are mrs henderson presents bob hoskins with some players and people just accept it. These incompatibilities should not exist. They exist because the standard allows for changes and deviations. In one way, its nice, but it forces obsolesense, screwing the consumer. It also means that firmware updates are the way of the future. So people may have bitched for years with no change, but we must continue to bitch and hopefully the lemmings of the world will hear the message and fight back. Thats what they get for buying a rental. Its true. Microsoft and Apple know this, thats why they push X-Boxes and iTunes so hard. No one wants physical media anymore, except for the hold-outs, but theyre still spinning vinyl and rolling in Super-8, they stopped factoring them in 1 there is no unskippable crap on the Avatar DVD, why? James cameron hates that stuff too. nope sorry. bluray has not matured as a format because it is not a dominant format. many people are still on dvddvd widescreen which offers a picture quality at least as good as what they get on ppv tv. dvd was quickly a format winner over vhs because it was so much better, bluray isnt getting the same uptake. bluray really is still in the early adopter phase. Its not the media companies fault. Yes, it certainly is. They are the only ones who force everyone to adopt their crap DRM schemes. These schemes are anti-consumer, but lame consumers arent smart or organized enough to be able to mrs henderson presents bob hoskins their wishes. The demand side of the free market is broken, and the supply side can run roughshod. Why would Hitachi put DRM into its hardware. It doesnt behoove them. And then a buyer of Hitachi has to pay for the DRM that they dont know they dont want. Whose fault is it that these machines are designed to NOT WORK in a variety of situations, some which occur by accident? It is the media companys fault. Their role is like that of a bully MPAA tricking a mentally handicapped person OEM, Denon to fire a gun at an unaware innocent victim consumer. You say not to blame the MPAA, they didnt do anything wrong.
