Many of the movies they show (King of the Lost World, 100 Million BC, Revenge of Bloody Bill, Transmorphers, I Am Omega, and plenty others) are licensed from The Asylum, who specialize (and acknowledge they specialize) in bad movies and "mockbusters".

I happen to love the Asylum movies and Sci-Fi - erm, SyFy - Channel Original Movies, but I can understand how I'd be in the minority there.

Maybe I just grew up watching a few too many episodes of MST3k...

Oddly enough, I just watched BOTH those movies for the first time last night!

They are both very good, but I wish Primer explored the interactions between and motivations of Abe and Aaron (and their various incarnations) a little bit better.

I hear Time Crimes (a spanish movie) is pretty good, I'm going to seek it out tonight.

Managing Personal Electronics and Software In the Workplace 387

darien writes "Last night Symantec hosted a round-table discussion on the topic of consumer devices in the workplace. John Brigden, Symantec's senior VP for EMEA, pointed out that regardless of the policies businesses may lay down, individuals will always try to use their favorite gadgets and websites at work. Reminds me of when I worked in IT support: no matter how many times we told users they weren't allowed to install ICQ, or to connect their personal laptops to the corporate network, they insisted on doing it. Frequently they even asked us to help them do it."

+ - RIAA ups ante, argues MP3's from CD's unauthorized->

Submitted by
NewYorkCountryLawyer writes "In an Arizona case against a defendant who has no legal representation, Atlantic v. Howell, the RIAA is now arguing — contrary to its lawyers' statements to the United States Supreme Court in 2005 MGM v. Grokster — that the defendant's ripping of personal MP3 copies onto his computer is a copyright infringement. At page 15 of its brief (pdf) it states the following: "It is undisputed that Defendant possessed unauthorized copies....Virtually all of the sound recordings .... are in the ".mp3" format for his and his wife's use.....Once Defendant converted Plaintiffs' recordings into the compressed .mp3 format and they are in his shared folder, they are no longer the authorized copies....""
