Re: Delta Tango Oscar

"Delta" or more specifically "Δ" is quite often used in mathematics/physics to denote a difference, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delta_(letter)

US movie viewers make sudden shift to net

Thumb Down

I find this graph very depressing. Had Big Content not failed so utterly in adopting new delivery channels, there might be much less of this whole stop-piracy bullshit going on. After all it's not like streaming movies was made possible only last year. And contrary to what is claimed by Big Content, I think a lot of people resort to "piracy" because of its ease of use, not because they don't want to pay for content.

Blighty's film biz asks gov to hurry up pirate crackdown

WTF?

Enough of this. If a business is unwilling to adapt its business model to a changing market it should go out of business. I thought that was what the whole "free market" thing was about. Obviously I need to learn about double standards.

The fact that legislation only meant to preserve an antique business model of a special interest group is even considered to be passed is a disgrace. It only goes to show that there is distinct lack of seperation of big business and state.

You write "Born to Kill" on your helmet and you wear a peace button. What's that supposed to be, some kind of sick joke?
