It's bizarre to me that so many commenters seem to trust Google more than Microsoft. I get not trusting either of them. I don't understand trusting Google.
Those who don't object to gmail won't object to this, and MS eats a share of Google's gmail lunch. I'm surprised it took them this long. Not that I'll be using this or anything, but I admire this move from the surveillance as a service perspective.
If metrics are poor, cc'ng the boss is the only way he will know what you are working on.
Let me be sure I get it. If I think of "dog", the targeting system aims at the dog. If I think of a smile, the targeting system aims at people that bare their teeth. Am I getting this right? I just want to be sure the long-term customers can make proper use of this.
Many of the fine reasons to trust the Zuck are here: http://www.truthhawk.com/is-fa...
Steering people to a platform where they get used to being censored is the entire point of Web 2.0, isn't it? What, do you want people to learn how to host their own webpages again? Luddite.
Arrange the turds in order from hottest to coldest! Good, good. You done with that? Good! Guess what's for dinner?
With Netflix, you're paying for a limited-time license to view the material. Your license immediately expires when you stop paying Netflix.
Try your "I'm entitled to record and play back..." argument in front of a judge after you get kicked out of a movie theater for using a video recorder.
Same thing. You're not going to get very far with that argument.
Not the same thing at all. How dare you compare my usage of a VCR with a person trying to take a camera copy at a paid exhibition at a movie theater? Are you spreading disinformation? Who pays you, coward? http://mentalfloss.com/article...
And if you can't stop live capture, then drm will only stop the truly law-abiding and the moderately lazy.
Live capture is law abiding. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a troll. http://mentalfloss.com/article.... Folks, seriously: never let a statement or implication about recording being illegal slide. Always correct this. It's worth arguing about.
I am entitled to record and play back my recording that I made. Caching a DRM copy of Netflix's actual file is inferior in terms of my rights. Breaking the DRM will definitely be some kind of violation. No thanks.
If they looked that far into it, why would anybody want a Kodi box at all, except for piracy? That's really the only reason to get one, whether they say "this is great for piracy!" or not.
It's spelled "privacy", and the files are stored on local servers in the Kodi users's homes.
In the battle of Google vs RIAA, I will side with Google. I will side with any entity vs RIAA for that matter.
You have informed the world how to exploit you, then.
You are failing to recognize Google's present position of power.
Wow, you people lining up to identify with Google's interests are totally missing the point. Google is not your friend. This study is about Google paying royalties. Not you.
