Games The PlayStation 3 Slim already had an ability penalty of -35 Geekiness because of its lack of the "Install Other OS" option, and now the regular PlayStation 3 will follow in its footsteps. A PS3 firmware update, scheduled to land April 1, will disable this option on regular PS3s as well. This, dear readers, is what we in the business call a "testicle move", especially since only a few weeks ago, Sony bold-facedly claimed the feature would not be removed.

When I got back to home and put the DVD in my player, I got several unskippable piracy warning telling me that the editor does not trust me, followed by some unskippable ads and an annoying menu.

The "unskippable warning" is there because it's a legal document. If it wasn't there, then you'd implicitly have the right to copy the movie.
