They just don't get it do they.
If you want to encourage piracy a sure-fire way to do it is to lock your content to a single platform. A platform I might add that is so far behind the Amazon Kindle in take up it's not funny.
What are all the people with kindles going to do? Buy a Sony reader? If anyone seriously believes this to be the case they need committing to a funny farm.
Heat up the hull of a container ship to "significantly more" then 100 degrees Celsius whilst it's submerged in ocean water.
They thinking of including Nuclear reactors on them now? I'm pretty certain that they're the only things that could even come close to the necessary power output.
What are these blocks of which you speak?
Re: Don't do the CAN-CAN
Nearly all of the people with issues in the largest Apple discussion thread on this fixed the problem by uninstalling smcfancontrol or gfxcardstatus. Two programs that interfere with the standard operation of the hardware/firmware.
True, a program shouldn't cause an issue like this. But also true is that you should leave the machine to manage it's hardware as programmed.
Bad Virgin Boxes
Every time I've ever had to use a virgin set top box I've been constantly frustrated by the sluggishness, layout and navigation. My Sky+ box (circa 2007) has outperformed them in every case. It's quick, I can see more channel schedules on a given screen and it's not got ads filling up vital screen space.
Are the Virgin HD boxes much improved on this? Or am I still limited to viewing 5 channels worth of schedule at a time?

"Hopefully a car manufacturer will never feel the need to connect a car stereo to the CAN bus of a car.."
I know the stock radio on my Fiat does, since thats how it gets the information it needs to dynamically raise and lower the volume dependant on speed.
There I was thinking that an increased number of Networks would encourage competition. Instead we've got all of them slashing "fair usage caps" and all of them upping the cost of ownership.
Hurrah for the consumer.
