Do Not Disturb

I was wondering why my iPhone and those of several friends were all stuck in DND. Makes me wonder what the heck is going on at Apple these days. A lot of very weird bugs popping up that one would have thought would have been caught in testing. Not like obscure kernel problems or the like.

Report links...

A more accurate title to that article would be, "RIAA shill spends millions to issue report based on preconceived outcome." Such blatant misrepresentation by Taplin should be called out.

Taplin is a Hollywood insider that failed at an attempt to launch an online video streaming company... he obviously blames piracy for his failure to become rich. The Annenberg Research Institute (who published the report) is funded by Warner Bros., Sony, and a myriad of other companies, I would hardly consider it unbiased.

As far as the content of the report, I don't doubt that many companies ARE making money off of piracy but their belief that it makes any difference shows that they are out of touch with reality. They see piracy akin to terrorism; cut off the funding and it will disappear. The thing they don't understand is that it has nothing to do with the money, they are only piggybacking on the pirates (you will find capitalists everywhere!!. Who advertised on Napster when it started? Who funds Usenet where you can find pretty much anything? Even if you were able to take every single cent away from piracy, it would continue.
