ibookdb Re:Will not work. (244 comments)

This has not been going on in hollywood for a long time. This is the same as your tv (or dvd/blu-ray movies on your internet connected player) showing characters drinking pepsi and your neighbors tv showing characters drinking coke because of your programming preferences
