I haven't used bittorrent to download anything other than Linux ISOs in 3 years. I buy books on Kindle, music on a paid Spotify account, games on Steam, and movies on Blu-Ray. So, no. I don't just reserve my empathy for my fellow IT workers. If companies provide better service than the pirates, it kills all urge to pirate.

I don't. Even if you don't like the Rift now that Facebook has bought Oculus, the only reason Sony's VR headset is being released is to jump on the hype train. The Rift is necessary to provide the competition that is needed to drive the VR market. At the very least until another well funded company announces an upcoming headset. In any case, provided that Facebook stays hands-off on the Rift, it looks like a very compelling product.

Once it hits the fan, the only rational choice is to sweep it up, package it, and sell it as fertilizer.
