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.

Someone should come up with a clean-looking paid torrent site, void of any annoying ad, sponsored by the governments of several countries, whose subscription can be paid without a credit card, and with better dubbing availability. This would lead to the end of silly centralized media distribution sites.

But for that, governments would have to acknowledge that peer to peer is not necessarily about copyright infringement. Probably won't work.

Doesn't Vuze already do this?

Though they will have some issue with the idiots that think they shouldn't have to upload anything just because they're paying. The are the same idiots that will bitch about slow download speeds and likely the same assholes that set their upload to only 1Kbps on free torrents anyways.
