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.

* downloading IS legal in my country.

Downloading, yes, but on p2p services you usually have to seed back isn't it ?

This has always bothered me.

Do some people still use P2P? Most people I know use direct downloads...And if your country forbides downloading of copyrighted material, direct downloading is one of the few ways not to get caught.

Apparently, Thom does ;) And I have to say it makes some sense too, since his ├╝berfast broadband is a bit under-used when using DDL sites that barely go above 100 KBps without a paying subscription.

Would suck if only one or a few people hosted the content and took all the risk.

What bothers me is that anyone cares in the first place and don't just accept that this is what will be done. Let it happen.
