Someone mentioned it above. There is software called Windows Steadystate that keeps the base file system unwritable to regular users and instead lets them write changes to a journaled file system that can be selectively restored from the base.
It would be nice if the existing big studios were intelligent and competitive enough to eventually catch up with technology, but if even the piracy they rave and lobby the government over won't push them forward, they may never join the rest of us.
The future lies in content producers who already sell their work mainly online. It woudn't surprise me to see vhfx.tv releasing an app like Netflix, or adding their library to any number of other convenient online media stores. They get it. Digital distribution is better for them and their customers.
The existing large media companies will only follow suit long after we have all abandoned them for the ones who do things sensibly. However, that will never happen unless we stop giving them our money and start giving it to people who use services like vhfx.tv
An animator for the TV show Archer popped into Reddit's Linux section to point out an in-joke he'd placed in some code on an extra monitor in a scene. He says he's added many more gags like this.
Granted, it takes cash to run sites like these, but they were fine before. The question is, do some of you here want to band together, get whatever is available of slashcode and rebuild this community somewhere else? We can try to make it as it once was, a haven of geeky knowledge and frosty piss, delivered free of charge in a clean community moderated format."

There is no new TLD in that domain name. It's actually available. Register thatnoonewillevervisit.com and setup the obscurespecializeddomain.dreamedupbymarketingidiots subdomain for it.
Domain Squatters, start your engines.
Many organizations will be caught off guard by this and have their names grabbed under the new TLDs. On the bright side, this will temporarily give us a chance to grab decent names instead of paying a squatter. It also drops the value of their holdings.
Aside from that, looking at the list, I think some of these should have also had abbreviations.
Berners-Lee later regretted the use of dots to separate the parts of the domain name within URIs, wishing he had used slashes throughout. For example, http://www.example.com/path/to/name would have been written http:com/example/www/path/to/name. Berners-Lee has also said that, given the colon following the URI scheme, the two slashes before the domain name were also unnecessary.
“retard” is a good word for this. For a server hosted inside the US, it makes things much more expensive (but not nearly impossible) for the NSA.
From the article you linked:
...there are other actions powerful adversaries could take. For example, they could convince the server operator to simply record all session keys.
So, the NSA cannot quickly pick out your server's traffic at their traffic hub monitors and decrypt it with the root SSL certificates they coerced vendors to give them.
What they can still do, if your server is in the US, is coerce the server operator to record all session keys so they can decrypt all traffic from that point onwards. This is much more expensive though.
The nice part about this is that a server hosted outside the US would only have to worry about less-powerful, less-funded government spies going through all of this. In Japan, the government may not do it at all unless your server's activity warrants a criminal investigation.
If you watch your server access logs, you will regularly see bots checking for common install URLs of popular website software. I'm blown away that vBulletin's hasn't been targeted for years.
They had better cover Peter's Evil Overlord List or your career is as doomed as all that came before it.
I think everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer—should learn a computer language, because it teaches you how to think.

There is a new product in pre-production the does exactly what you described. It's nutrition shake, not a solid food though. They should be shipping regular orders by sometime this fall.
For something closer to what you described, and more relevant to this post, NASA is funding research on a complete daily nutrition solid that may use an insect source for protein. This may be licensed as a commercial product sometime in the future.
Based on another article I read, it only works in the Safari browser.
When I used to ride regularly, I had a rear-view mirror that attached to the end of my left handlebar.
