I am very comfortable with technology and know my way around computers and the many great freeware programs that are available. Before DRM was just a minor issue and not a problem getting around putting music and DVDs on our PDAs, MP3 players or my new zen vision W. I'm not a fan of P2P sites and don't use them (have tried them for software) because I'll catch most movies on pay-per-view and if there is a movie that I really want to see then nothing beats the theaters.
Two days ago I'm looking for the box collection of Alias, the store doesn't have it so I get the last bond film and some H.Bogart movies. I'm home and decided to convert the bond film for my zen vision and watch it on the long train ride home from work. But No being a SONY disc that's not going to happen. This DRM is really starting to p*** me off. I'm not going to upload the movie, make copies for my friends or re-edit and try to sell the dumb thing. I just want to be able to watch the movie that I paid full price for when I want, where I want and on what I want.
Do they really expect a consumer to buy the DVD, a copy for their Ipod and one for any other PVP they may have. Fair-Use is not dead and I will not give in to blackmail. I will get Casino Royale on my Zen W and any other official DVD that I purchase by any means necessary.
And they question why people are already cracking the codes on HD-DVD and Blu-ray Disc, the answer is FAIRUSE.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
