Ever burned a DVD to your computer? Got a spare $10,000 kicking around? No? Then you'd better pay attention to the upcoming TPP negotiations. LIKE and SHARE to keep that cool 10 grand in your pocket.

People are much more likely to follow a link they only have to click than one they have to manually retype out. Also, having the data in plain text within the post helps with SEO. 

As for the main topic, all this does is convince me to stick with digital purchases and not waste another dime on physical copies. While the act of ripping DVDs is often associated with piracy, there are a lot of people who rip their DVDs for personal use. They bought the movie and simply want to make it easily accessible on their home network without dealing with digging through stacks of discs.

This is why I prefer purchasing them via Google Play or Amazon and no longer have to worry about losing the disc, the case for the disc, or the disc getting scratched.

Were you surprised to discover that the NSA knew about the Heartbleed bug two years ago and kept it secret? Here's why you shouldn't be. http://ow.ly/vTRRN
Julian Sanchez: What the agency's denial isn't telling you: it didn't even need know about the bug to vacuum your privacy and store it indefinitely

A positive development in the fight against warrantless NSA surveillance in the U.S.: President Obama's privacy watchdog is speaking out against dragnet information gathering of citizens' private data. Do you think this is a step in the right direction? Sound off in the comments http://ow.ly/vTKvP
Watchdog expects "short transition" period from constitutionally suspect surveillance.

The list of organizations and individuals that the NSA illegally spied on grows. New revelations by Edward Snowden indicate that the NSA monitored communications of prominent human rights organizations and activists. What effect do you think these dragnet operations had on human rights groups? http://ow.ly/vRKtv

The U.S. is mad at other countries for taking action to prevent illegal NSA spying. Does that seem fair to you? http://ow.ly/vMAp9
Recent U.S. criticism will increase the conflict between the U.S. and Europe over NSA spying. The office of the U.S.Trade Representative(USTR) claims that creating an EU-centric system to avoid NSA spying would violate international trade laws.

Comcast wants to own the internet — or, at least, the cables that carry it to most Americans’ homes. Yesterday, the company laid out its arguments for acquiring Time Warner Cable in a filing...
