You are correct, partially. Only three specific models of PS3 support older PS2/PS1 titles. See https://support.us.playstation.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/232/session/L2F2LzEvdGltZS8xMzgyOTAzNzcyL3NpZC9RNjdVTVNEbA%3D%3D for reference. PS2 supports PS1 titles, although PS2 itself is not that easy to find these days.
Can I expect to be able to access my collection of e-books in 40 years? I highly doubt that; it's more likely that I'd have to pay multiple times to shift the books from one format to another in order to access them with the e-readers available at that time. The popupar format is epub/mobi today, it's likely to be something else as technology progresses.
Will we witness a planned obsolescence as has happened multiple times with console games? PS1 games can nowadays only be played using an emulator (if you can't find a real PS1 console, that is). The PS1 games people had are naught but frisbees.
There is no "park" for cars with manual gearbox
No, this is Microsoft taking the required steps to protect against boot rootkits doing damage in the wild right now. It's nothing else, but it has been spinned as such. It's like conspiracy theorists who find some conspiracy in almost anything they hate. The difference just being that this isn't the big bad government and their secret UFO stuff, it's Microsoft.
Look, Microsoft is doing a far more good by killing of the boot-time rootkits. I'm sure the few people who want to dual boot can just buy devices that support it.
Look, Sony was doing a great deal of good by killing the PS3 piracy. I'm sure the few people who want to dual boot their PS3 can just buy devices that support it.
So the reports about TSA agents repeatedly touching people's sexual organs are completely OK because people consent to such behaviour? Granted, IANAL, but I do think that consenting to a pat down and consenting to having a stranger enter his finger into your girlfriend's vagina are completely different things.
I do agree that that pat downs are nowhere near "groping" or "sexual molestation" if done right. The problem is that the pat downs are *not* done right. A court throwing out a case because a pat down can be done right, regardless of whether it was done right in that case, sounds kind of strange. It's like saying that intentionally botching a surgery is OK because properly done surgery has great positive effects.
Just ignore them and hope they go away.
I agree. If Sony had completely ignored the PS3 hacks, none of this would have happened (at least in my opinion).
Most Americans would have volunteered to squeeze the trigger that fired those rounds.
Most Americans support hate crimes? Shooting someone based only on the opinion that that someone did something bad is a hate crime and is no different than shooting your neighbour because of a rumour that he had killed some people.
Why do you think the password needs to be cracked at all?
1. Make a copy of the hash
2. Replace the hash with a hash of a known password
3. Log in with the known password and do whatever you wanted to do with the account
4. Replace the hash with the copy created in step 1
5. Delete the traces of the login so that the original user would not see the login information.
Universal has way more lawyers than any single person that uploads stuff to Youtube. So even if someone were to point out that the DMCA request was illegal, Universal could just sue that someone and keep them tied up in courts for a decade. The way I see it, that makes them think they can do whatever they please with zero repercussions if they happen to be wrong.
UI lag isn't a disadvantage?
The guy in the military wasn't a "whistle blower", he was a traitor, and will spend the rest of his life in jail. The morality of sites like Wikileaks is interesting to debate, but a serving member of the military who helps the enemy doesn't have a leg to stand on, period.
Who's the enemy here, US citizens?
I'm sort of afraid of the mayhem that will occur a bit before the current system will fall apart
If it doesn't have a character called Cid, it's not Final Fantasy game. As simple as that.
I came here to ask the same question. How on Earth is this thing patentable? Is any web service now patentable? Could the Twitter guys have patented "system and method for writing 140-character messages via browser"?
