Re: Netflix

If prices get too high, and service gets too slow, maybe we'll see video stores opening up again.

More like Verizon will let you know that Verizon's content (only slightly more expensive than Netflix) mysteriously doesn't suffer from the poor performance that Netflix content does.

I hope so! I miss them. I still like physical medias with no lame DRMs. RedBox is the only choice where I live.

I am unsure which media you are referring to. Blu-Ray with AACS? DVD with CSS? VHS with Macrovision? AFAIK all media had some form of DRM added to it.

I just got my first DRMed monitor. It doesn't feel so good.

every display with HDMI has a DRM decoder of sorts.

Yeah, the 'DRM display' (if that means what I suppose it means) is the innocent end of DRM. It's being asked to show its id to the border guards; it's not the border guard.

Or am I missing something?

I think you are right. It is not the border guard. When the border guard demands an ID it provides it.

It does it with mini display port to display port cable that I am using to connect the monitor to the computer. But it doesn't do it with my Samsung HD TV which is connected via HDMI cable to the computer. Seems it should. It's a bit misleading/confusing because the two are set as duplicate displays. The TV duplicates what's on the monitor's screen so I guess the DRM is already in use on the PC screen and doesn't need to also be on the TV.
