More About Copy Control on Hard Drives

RavStar Lets see what we learn from history.... (344 comments)

This is going to play out like this: Manufacture A starts the new line of hard drives, OEMs B C D E F & G say lets buy Manufacture B's hard drive without this new 'feature'. Manufacture A's sales drop, so then their stock. CEO A says oh crap, my shareholders are gona revolt! Lets 'revise' the design! (smaks of the intel serial #s huh?)
After seeing Manufacture A go through slump, Manufactures B C D E F G & H hopefully wont be stupid and follow, right? After all, and new lines dot all come out at the same time, so the rest can watch the train wreak and learn....
