... I think this will push more people to Netflix and pirated movies. I'm not against copyright protection. I'm actually for it. But guess what? Those movies, should they actually be bought, belong completely to the buyers for their viewing pleasure. They should be able to play it anywhere they want and anyhow, including using it on Linux, which may not have these DRM technologies.
They should make their movies readily available, priced well so they're both attractive and fair to all concerned, and easily playable on any platform.
I don't think they're going to be able to defeat piracy this way... or any way, really, save by being better than pirated copies or pirated systems of availability. Downloading and burning copies isn't that great, especially if movies and other entertainment are just as easily downloaded or streamed legitimately and the pricing is good. Like duh.
They need to compete with pirates and perhaps make piracy less convenient... without making legitimate copies less convenient.
The Merrill experience paints a vibrant illustration of the market force wielded in Canada by the Big Six.
More recently, four of them including Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, which bought Merrill Lynch Canada’s operations (with $50 billion in assets under management) when the U.S. behemoth pulled up stakes in 2001, demonstrated their might to band together with other national financial giants to defeat an attempt by the London Stock Exchange to buy the parent company of the Toronto Stock Exchange. A consortium backed by the banks ultimately bought the Canadian exchange group for itself.
That dominion – a blend of enviable market share and a status approaching that of national institutions – is something Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple Inc. would be wise to keep in mind as negotiations ramp up with Canada’s banks over the Canadian implementation of its smartphone payment technology, Apple Pay.
The big banks and the tech giant are on a “collision course” as they work towards giving customers a coveted cashless and cardless “mobile wallet,” Royal Bank of Canada chief executive Dave McKay told investors at a conference last month in New York. But while the banks operate in a market a tenth the size of Apple’s home turf, they have used their domestic scale and market-share clout to punch above their weight in the past, prevailing against large, brand-name foes.
“Canada is a bit [of a] different dynamic than in the U.S., given the oligopoly in Canada,” says John Aiken, a financial services analyst at Barclays Capital.
"It comes in silver, gold, and space grey-"
"Oh, I know!"
Anyway, I had to leave because they were closing. I asked to stay an extra two minutes and was told I could but another employee who had a much more familiar face and who would find mine familiar, told me almost right away that they were closing now, and rather than have the employees argue, I agreed to come back today.
My umbrella... will come... in handy....
That's in contrast to the median age of nearly 43 for all U.S. workers who are computer programmers, according to the lawsuit. Heath's lawsuit seeks class-action status.
There was a technical telephone interview that, as described in this lawsuit, appears to have been handled oddly. The interviewer was 10 minutes late to the call, "barely fluent in English," and "used a speaker phone that did not function well." Heath politely asked him, repeatedly, to use the phone's headset but the request was declined.
Consequently, Heath and the interviewer had difficulty understanding each other. One part of the interview involved writing a short program to find the answer to a problem posed by the interviewer. Heath accomplished the task and offered to share it via Google Docs or email, but, instead, the interviewer required Heath "to read the program coding over the phone." It did not go well. The interviewer "seemed not to understand" what was being read, the lawsuit states.
[from the article] Called the Lounge Console, it’s a seat that stretches from the back featuring a leg rest and fold-out 17-inch screen in place of the passenger seat on the XC90. Under the leg rest is a compartment for shoes, because in order to fully relax, you should take off your shoes. There is also a lock box for watches, cufflinks or jewellery.
"Removing the passenger seat enabled us to create an open space that dramatically changes the dynamics of the interior and led to firework of ideas and new possibilities.”
... Well. Volvo was previously something of the past to me, but this seemingly great idea has gotten my attention again. If I was looking for a car, I might consider Volvo, though perhaps not this one. Not sure how much one of these costs... or anything else.

Life is happiness. Happiness is peace.
Life moves. Everything moves. Everything exchanges.
Nothing stops. Nothing dies.
Life is all we know. It's the model for perfection, success.
We are born believing in life. We count on it.
We love freely and want to be loved freely. We count on it.
The world is a system. It obligates us. It needs our obedience.
Money, too. Laws, too. We can't count on them.
We still need to believe in life. We still need to love and be loved freely. Count on it.
War is destructive.
Life dreams life. Life shapes life. Life furthers life. Life enjoys life. Life loves life.
Happiness is strength, beauty, intelligence.
Those who don't want to be happy shouldn't be.
They deserve all the support they need ~ none.
Life is the only thing worth fighting for.
Life is worth life.
