Is the proposed law limited to mitochondrial DNA? And even if it is, how long before that restriction is lifted in another law? Once you start down this road, there's no going back. The end result is obvious: a world like Gattaca, where every unborn child will need his DNA tampered just to get a job.

Make it so that it's impossible for anyone to find out who is communicating with whom, and the phones will sell like hotcakes.

Try the WD TV Live. I have one, and it's awesome. Plays MKV files ripped straight from a Blu-Ray.

As for Netflix, there appears to be some kind of DNS problem with some devices. I had to set my router to to get my TV to work. Setting the DNS on the TV to was not good enough. I suspect it's a conspiracy between Samsung and Google.

The universe seems neither benign nor hostile, merely indifferent. -- Sagan
