Multimedia, AV An interesting anecdote at MinimalMac about television being broken. The author's young daughter, who is growing up in a Netflix/Hulu/iTunes/etc. household, was confronted with actual TV for the first time, and wonders why she can't pick what to watch, why the shows are being interrupted all the time, and so on. Clearly - TV is broken.

bornagainenguin, you seem completely ignorant of a few things -- what ownership is. what function copyrights serve. the point of being in business (in this case, the entertainment business)... I won't bother going on but the list certainly doesn't end there.

You seem to be one of those people that thinks you're entitled in some way -- as if you're owed, or have some kind of right that doesn't actually exist. Whatever the case, you should consider other perspectives on this subject so you can get a real understanding of how it works. "The system" works more than not and that's coming from someone who is speaking from first-hand experience.
