The killer app for me was when 3D Blu-Ray capability was added. For me, the PS3 will continue to have it's honorary position in my entertainment scenario, so long as it can play Blu-Ray movies and allow me to play Symphony of the Night on the big screen.
If my PS3 breaks while they're still making them? I'm not sure I'd buy another. I'd just get a cheap 3D-capable Blu-Ray player and play SotN by other means.
I'm sure these frames and banner ads "violated" the design of websites that were browsed by these users, but since the websites themselves were not hacked or damaged and displayed correctly on the computer screen of those not using ad-managed ISPs/web browsers, there is probably not a tangible copyright issue.
Hotel Wi-Fi is just the modern version of this same model, albeit without using software or requiring ad clicks.
2. The websurfer proceeds to request pages from a remote webserver. The ISP injects ads as the customer consented.
No where in this was the remote webserver compromised or hacked. The website still loads as the content owner designed on computers accessing the website through ISPs that have not adjusted the content. Since the customer is agreeing to allow the ISP to alter his web browsing experience in exchange for Internet Access, this is permissible. Unethical, perhaps, but permissible. Certainly not compyright infringement.
