Of course creating quality content costs money, and people should be rewarded for the effort they do. However, that just isn't enough. I personally block ads because 90% of them are Flash-ads which slows my computer down quite a bit, most of them are really distracting and annoy me when I try to read the content at hand, and heck, some of them even include sound! If the ads weren't Flash, distracting and even downright annoying I wouldn't mind. But well, there's an even more important reason to block ads: viruses and malware. It's well known nowadays that ads often carry unwanted stuff with them and as such having ads enabled is just a huge security risk.
I was wondering about this whole thing...If LHC indeed did suddenly pop out a supermassive black hole that swallowed the whole planet then who would there be left to complain? A black hole would disintegrate us so fast that we wouldn't even have time to feel pain, and once the whole planet is gone then there is no one left to give a flying f.. Oh well, atleast I don't honestly care if LHC works or if we all die due to a black hole. Mankind has never been anything more than a disease on the surface of Earth. We have destroyed dozens of species completely, we have ruined half the planet to a state of not-reparable..so the next logical step is to get rid of Earth completely.
That Ari Jaaksi sure talks alot but he never says anything. He just babbles open-source developers and community should be taught yet he doesn't say how or why, he didn't answer the reason why they need closed devices and so forth..Well sure, they want closed devices, DRM and all that so they can control people and milk even more money from them. But that is exactly what most of the open-source community is strongly against! Me, I have never bought a SIM-locked phone, I don't buy drmed music nor would I buy DVDs if I couldn't back them up. If they come up with some new format for audio or video files and then DRM makes it impossible for me to back up those files or use them in other devices I own then I'll steer clear from those formats in the future. Most likely I'd start avoiding Nokia, too.
