Look, I am not one of those guys they say they pirate because they can't get the content as a DRM-free file. I would pirate music and movies anyway. But the ability to have my music and movies as plain mp3, m4a, avi, mp4 and mkv files and not having to tolerate problems like the above is definitely a plus. And if I want stuff on the clouds, there is always the Exodus plug-n for Kodi (not officially supported by Kodi obviously).

As if "the rich" will idly sit by waiting to be taxed instead of becoming Luxembourgian, Panamese, Monte-Carlian, Liechtensteinian etc citizens taking all their property with them and their businesses. Just like it happened in Venezuela. And just look how Gérard Depardieu moved from France to Russia when Hollande tried to tax him.

I think what the dude meant is that fracturing your installed base just 2 years after your console launched is an immensely dumb idea, no matter how it's done (blot-on or new system). The only way Sony can pull "PlayStation 4.5" off and succeed is to make those VR games compatible with the ordinary PS4, even at a lower-resolutions or non-VR functionality. Otherwise, if there are games that run only on the PS4.5, every developer is going to go towards where the audience is (PS4) for as long as it's "good enough". Also, VR took Sony and MS by surprise, otherwise they wouldn't have gone for so mediocre GPUs...

No it's not, moisture will still be detected in the charging port, and the firmware will still react accordingly. I never understood this "X minutes of water resistance when submerged" thing. Does this mean water gets into the device? If I wait a minute and re-submerge it, do I get another X minutes of water resistance? If not, how long I need to wait between submersions? A phone with ports can't really be water resistant. The true water-resistant phone will be full wireless with inductive charging

There is absolutely no difference between Star Trem and Star Wars youtube dot com/watch?v=jL1dEyDMA-o Both of them are campy space SciFi with dressed up humans as extra-terrestials and with silly plots like big bad empire vs rebels or "romulans" driving spaceships, inferior to the Alien and Predator franchises. Sorry guys.
