Re: It's a Sony (once and forever)

said by dave:
If you buy the hardware, you should be able to do whatever you want with it. I don't see this as related to the usual discussion of sofware rights: hardware is very definitely an object that belongs, after payment, to the purchaser. If I want to buy a PS3 and use it as a doorstop, I can do that. Right?

Right. However, as usual, Sony's wicked mind see it different. Remember the Sony BMG copy protection rootkit scandal and after Mark Russinovich posted an article about the rootkit, Sony BMG released a removal program that merely unmasked the hidden files installed by the rootkit, but did not actually remove the rootkit? It's obvious Sony solely produced crap in the past and till today didn't changed their arrogant, ignorant and intolerable attitude.

The only thing I have a hard time avoiding from Sony is the Sony/BMG catalog. Everything else is boycotted because of the rootkit.

Haven't purchased anything since an old 21" Trinitron Tube TV.

Most consumers and computer users don't know what a rootkit is! But maybe if they were to be well informed, then just maybe they might feel the same as those in here.

Even blu-ray. For the most part I don't watch movies.
