  • RSS 2.0

    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

  • iTunes RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats me...it's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

  • Comments RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for global comments (any comment made to the board); each entry has a seperate comments feed, too

MPAA Successfully Kills TVs Record Button

From ZeroPaid: MPAA Successfully Kills TVs Record Button

While this site clearly has a position to push (and the articles are generally filled with typos and grammatical errors), it’s still important to read this, since legitimate outlets don’t seem to be covering it; the FCC is granting a, “limited waiver of the prohibition on disabling audio-visual outputs.” Basically, the long-dead “Broadcast Flag” has reared its ugly head once again.

Of course, this won’t bother the pirates, who watch movies from grainy camcorder copies…it will only interfere with your ability to time-shift content. And while the scope appears to be narrow at the moment, we all know it will gradually expand.

It’s a shame the regulators of so many things in this country have forsaken the consumers and so heavily shifted to supporting the industries they are obliged to reign in.
