Did anyone RTFA? Per the author, "...but as with the previous generation of this Apple laptop, display quality is absolutely acceptable and usable for image assessment and simple Photoshop edits in the field, as long as you're aware of the display's particular blend of strengths and weaknesses." So clearly, the OP made the egregious decision to create this post just for the sake of flame bait.

Ok, so don't own it, but others feel, hence the purpose of this article/thread, if its protected, it must be compromised. I work in the "industry" and I still don't understand the sense of entitlement. Back when music was made on vinyl discs, there was one way to play it, on a record player. You could only watch film on a film projector. But since its digital, people feel like, screw it, Im not gonna buy it, movies and music suck anyway, it deserves to be downloaded on bit-torrent. Can the same thing be said for the work product so many concerned slashdotters create? Can it be arbitrarily dismissed and given away with no remuneration to you, just because some person believes the company should not charge for your work and protect your interest, and as a result you end up not being paid? Is it still okay then? Would you "work" for free?

So your economic circumstances are what has driven you to breaking the law? Sounds like a defense a rapper would use in court. The studios have made concessions like digital copy, but again, its a copy, the problem comes in when folks ask, well how many copies do you need? So you buy a book for Kindle on amazon, its electronic, you save it to CF, how many copies do you need? Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
