Kaleidescape Settles With DVD CCA But No Victory For DRM

deimios666 Re:DRM (76 comments)

The PS3 DRM took quite a while to break. Arguably because Sony allowed linux to be installed. Once they disabled that feature all hell broke loose.

Netflix, Youtube Surpass 50% Mark of Internet Traffic

deimios666 Errors... (249 comments)

I don't know how these sites generate that much traffic. I for one can't even use them properly.
Getting error messages like: "Sorry, Netflix is not available in your country yet." and "This video is not available in your country".
I know it's on their end since higher quality services like ThePirateBay never had any such errors, and even if there were some tehnical issues in accessing the main site, it always had an available mirror. The price was right too.
If only other sites would learn some good practices from ThePirateBay, for example: decent pricing, global release dates and quality assurance.

Piriform Asks BleachBit To Remove Winapp2.ini Importer

deimios666 Winapp2 site states.... (305 comments)

From the Winapp2.ini site (numbering added by me):

1. Winapp2.com is the official website of Winapp2.ini, an addon for CCleaner, System Ninja, and
BleachBit

2. This website and its files are not endorsed or supported in any way by Piriform. They take no responsibility for any damages or problems that arise from its use.

3. Many entries from Winapp2.ini have been included in the official builds of CCleaner over time.

Looks like the " CCleaner data" the email is referring to is actually Winapp2 data included into CCleaner.

Mozilla To Bug Firefox Users With Old Adobe Reader, Flash, Silverlight

deimios666 Netbooks? (247 comments)

As a netbook (E350) owner I am forced to run an older version (11.2) of flash or else 720p content isn't played back smoothly.
Adobe borked something in 11.3+ versions of Flash that makes HD youtube videos unbearably choppy.
