The End of the PC Era and Apple's Plan To Survive

korekrash Don't Believe the Hype (549 comments)

Apple is a new, trendy Microsoft but a little worse. I have used a Mac at work for a couple years now and I just don't understand the hype around these machines. Give me a PC I can dual boot into Windows 7 and Fedora, laptop in the same config and Symbian based phone and I am a happy man. I think this "model" will die if they continue this way. If your as old as I am you'll remember when IBM tried this "lock in" strategy in the eighties. That worked out real well for them....

$1.9 Million Award In Thomas Case Raises Constitutional Questions

korekrash Re:Protecting Artists? Artists to Blame. (439 comments)

OK, your point on theft is taken; it is legally different. But that still doesn't make it right to illegaly download something you don't have the right to use. It just irks me that so many people feel it is ok to rip off artists. Regardless of it being theft or not you are ripping off the people that made the music, software, etc. if you download it without paying for it. I am not saying this judgement was right, only that downloading the music and making it available to others is not right either. As for being a troll...just because I have a different view than most of the techno-hippies on /. does not make me a troll....

$1.9 Million Award In Thomas Case Raises Constitutional Questions

korekrash Re:Protecting Artists? Artists to Blame. (439 comments)

Um, huh? Dude, it's THEFT. I just don't understand this outlook. It's called the music BUSINESS for a reason. Blame the artists? Should Best Buy be blamed if I walk in and steal some electronics? And should we blame Sony if the item I steal is a VAIO laptop? That makes NO sense....

Bittorrent To Cause Internet Meltdown

korekrash Re:Well Duh (872 comments)

This isn't a matter of your wife stabbing you in the face, it's more like a career criminal stabbing a jail guard in the face for locking him in a cell.

I'm tired of hearing about these idiots that just want to steal everything cry about "fairness". It's a joke. They should allow P2P to be blocked completely and get it over with. I don't want to hear about "legitimate use" of torrent either. I'd bet at least 2/3 of all torrent traffic is for pirated movies, music or software and a large portion of the remaining 1/3 is probably porn.

Not to mention it's making the large game makers ditch the PC, like EA did with Madden 09 this year, because of all the piracy. Block P2P and I bet piracy goes way down and legit users get more bandwidth...if not only temporarily....Although I'm sure the idiots will keep finding a way to "retaliate" because we lock down the criminals.....
