Death to DRM, we'll kill it in a decade, chants EFF

if the public would boycott ALL of the recorded crap for just 1 week their pocket book would convince them to be fair!! after all NONE of it is necessary for life in any way. hell, pick up a damn BOOK,!! fuck corporate electronic media!!

Re: @Pen-y-gors - Not going to happen

in my experience the overwhelming number of folks who view or have pirate copys cannot afford and will not be buying the corporate trash, so basically they're not losing a sale but getting free advertisement. (in my opinion the corporate movie and music trash is not worth buying any way so they should rent it because most will be thrown away after a few uses!!) ps i am old and dont look at (mostly racist) hollywood movies and dont listen to the "modern popular music" i do Coltrane and Bach etc.

Re: Not going to happen

if the creators were getting the majority of the money you might have a argument, but they are not , the corporate leeches are sucking up most of the money!!

tesmith47

Re: Not going to happen

i dont look at or listen to any of the crap put out today. BUT i understand folks pirate tuff, when i was younger movies were about $2 and the fancy theaters were $5 now you are lucky to go to a movie for $12 records were $6-8 dollars now cds are $16 but peoples incomes have not kept up with the increases. I dont understand why music that is 40 -50 years old cost as much as new "music" hasent everyone been paid yet!!??

Re: People slowly realise how much of a problem it is

greedy blood sucking corporations, they are not satisfied with adequate profit , they want every penny they can wring out of the public no matter what the consequences

Yay, more 'STEM' grads! You're using your maths degree to do ... what?

tesmith47

Re: Bah!

i agree with you except for the one word "CANT" remunerate , i think it is more a case of capitalist WONT remunerate. the capitalist expect that enough bright folks will fin a way to invent or discover that they need not invest any capital or effort neither theirs directly nor theirs indirectly (I.E. the governments tax money!!) yeah the capitalist own everything and all the money!!!

AMD: We're not splitting our gfx and servers biz, ignore all the rumours

tesmith47

I would hate to see AMD go down, i remember when there were three cpus you could buy and the only one that i could afford was AMD (386 dx was expensive and damn apple was totally out of the question!!). I will always have a soft spot for AMD my present chip does everything i need including video stuff, i love my fx8350

ISIS command post obliterated after 'moron' jihadi snaps a selfie, says US Air Force

tesmith47

the author of this article is a part of the ethnic group that has caused the people in the middle east to resort to violence. the west opposes ISIS and that is legitimate but there is no need to demonize and vilify the people the west has abused, misused and exploited for 150 years. people like this author dont seem to remember when the middle east was pleading with the west to help them and the west response was to rape them some more. (remember the secret treaties in the league of nations on how to parcel out those countrys?, remember assassinating Mosedgghi? remember taking palestine ? etc etc???? considering all of the history of the west fu- king them up i am surprised more of them are not ISIS!!

Re: {Scratches head}

i accept that you are being honest, but one question for you, have you ever discovered (after a failed interview) that you have been discriminated against because yo are "white"?

tesmith47

Re: Societal failure

you are mostly correct, but the problem still is that because of past history white men are the ones doing the choosing and sometimes biases come into effect .

I agree that there is a social issue that really is not being addressed, .

tesmith47

Re: The Term "People of Color" is Incorrect

yep, the social construct of "WHITNESS" can often seem ludicrous

"However, there's one part of the pro-diversity business case that seems to me to be less than conclusively proven. And that's the one that insists that diversity among the workforce is required to be able to deal with diversity among the customer base. I really just don't get that at all."

i am so tired of content providers crying the blues all the time, they make more money thn they can count and they still complain about the few folks that get their trash for free or steal it.

for transparancy, i dont play games nor do i watch much tv (local news) and i never goto movies.

the only game i have is angry birds to play at the airport. i listen to jazz and european orchestral music and even old music like that they charge high prices for. (no rock, hip hop, rap country etc)

if consumers as a group would just boycott all of their crap for just 1 month, they wuld come around to some good sense about it.

Re: Obama Plan for Internet?? - Nooooo!

ow much is one (worthless) F35 fighter? how about $300 million for the navy version.

maybe it is a matter of priorities , help your citizens or extend your empire by attacking undeveloped countrys that cannot strike back effectively (lets attack russia or china macho guys!!!)

tesmith47

Re: Obama Plan for Internet?? - Nooooo!

not true, the real culprit is the uncontrolled gouging by the damn insurance companys!!!!!!

tesmith47

Re: Obama Plan for Internet?? - Nooooo!

THAT IS NOT TRUE, many people are now paying less, and the cost increase is because of the price gouging by the damn insurance companys!!!!

tesmith47

Re: Obama Plan for Internet?? - Nooooo!

i love all of you anti Obama folks, you always get the story twisted. the reason the affordable care act is crippled is because the REPUBLICANS did everything in their power to screw it up as much as possible. Even with that, my relatives in W. Virginia, for the first time in their lives have some sort of health care.

I am not a Democrat and i think the Dems are bunch of whimps, they should of rammed the original single payer plan through, and screw bi-partisian crap!!!

The dems deserve a sound whipping for letting the republicans do that.

tesmith47

i hope you are right,i pray for a painful and gory death for all ATT executives executives!!!!

tesmith47

I live in Washington D.C. the capital of america, but i live in the poor part of town.

ATT has promised fiber to me for almost 20 years,, i talked with a rep at a trade show lately and he told me they have no intentions to provide fiber to my section of town.

Att is a bunch of lying scurvy rat liars, they will not do anything that the public needs because they are sucking up enough money just as they are.

i hope all of the capitalist rats like them rot in hell, while they are ripped apart by rabid rats tied to their faces and crotches!!!!!

Nork-ribbing flick The Interview AXED: Sony caves under hack terror 'menace'

tesmith47

in no way do i endorse the Sony hack,.......BUT some of the revelations about pay, gender inequality and the racist hateful attitude that Sony has towards the Black customers of their films are worthy of exposure.

I, for one will NOT be seeing any Sony movies until some heads roll

I dont look at hollywood crap for personal reasons plus the price now days, I sometimes look at stuff 10 years old so i am not a good example of the public, but, if the public could be persuaded to boycott just 1 film in protest of the damn mpaa and their stupidity they would learn a lesson very quickly!! i say, a pox on all the bastards!!!!!!

Re: RE: William Donelson Fastest growing Jobs...

most people dont die of brain issues, most people diefrom lack of basic health care, so yes there is a argument that we need a lot more general doctors and nurses than brain surgeons.

Re: Ditch the white cat, please

bull, western capitalism has had all of the wealth stolen from damn near everyone else in the world, including the mind boggling wealth generated by the enslavement of hundreds of millions of africans for 200 years (yeah, i am looking at you too America) the Russians are sob's in their own right but they did not participate and did not profit in this world wide rape, plunder and theft by the west.

tesmith47

Re: Apologetic.

you are exactly right, and, to add insult on top of injury the right wingers here what to reduce taxes for the wealthy, decrease workers wages even though American productivity is at a all time high!!

tesmith47

Re: Apologetic.

bollocks! the top percent pay most of the taxes , true BUT the top percent take most of the income!!!.

the real issue is not "soaking" the rich(even though the rich have soaked the poor for ever) but a change in the political and economic systems that impoverishes an increasingly larger percent of our citizens wile lavishing unlimited wealth on a small percent of the population.

one example capital gains for the wealthy are taxed at a lower % than the working persons income, how in the hell does that make sense considering the lower 90% of income earners have virtualy no capital gains ever and the wealthiest take home almost ALL of the capital gains generated!!!???!!!
