News.com is running an article about this. It appears Microsoft is putting hooks into the OS that will keep people from being able to Pirate and view pirated movies on Windows Vista. I have been reading some of the comments and Im confused. Nowhere in the article does it say that you will not be able to view content that you own, nor does it say you will not be able to view content that you buy, but simply you will not be able to pirate and view pirated content. Maybe Im confused but how is this a bad thing? The movie industry and the software industry lose billions of dollars to piracy world over. All Microsoft and Hollywood are trying to do is protect Intellectual and Creative properties. I dont see where this will affect a legitimate user at all. Anyone care to explain? maybe im just looking at this to simplistic or too cut and dry.

Saw it tonight. Pretty decent film. If you are a fan of the first Ring you will enjoy this one. Does Samara finally rest in peace? Watch it and find out.

Very fricking funny. All those hours alone in his room you never know, he could be masturbating. Hell he could be masturbating to GNOME and KDE. if your son says his GF’s name is SUSE or Mandriva you may have a problem, no SUSE is not a pimped out oriental chick.

How anyone can offer up a sound review of a product still in Beta is beyond me, but I do agree. OpenOffice.org 2.0 does beat MS Office in many ways and if they had an Outlook equivalent, who knows who may switch.

Is it IBM or Sun? Sun has been getting alot of press lately with Solaris 10 but I do believe Apple with Mac OS X 10.4 has had more shipments than both.

Well G4 already has a show called “Attack of the show” . “Call for help” with Emperor Laporte returns, but his old Apprentice Roger Chang is nowhere in sight but Im sure he has found a new apprentice, once much younger and far more powerful.
