First. I've had it for three years, and it hasn't failed me yet. It got some red lights on the front a long time ago, but nothing ever came of it.
I'm on my 7th. The last version, one of the first slimline models, has been working great since I got it. Hopefully a sign that the new design has fixed the issues.Worgen said:2nd time my 360 has red ringed, how many 360s has the escapist gone though?
And it is beyond me why people are defending massively profitable corporations like they are some benevolent benefactor. I really do not understand where the loss of vision occurs. Many of the arguments in support come down to "It doesnt effect me, I dont care."Donnyp said:I really don't see why people feel the need to treat all corporations like they are Nike or Wal-Mart. Not everything and everyone is an evil asshole.
First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
.... and they backed off because loosing that case would hurt them and their ability to change games from being a product and into being a service which does not have the same legal protections. Beyond that. it was their own doing. Geohotz action would never had occurred had Sony not bait and switched Linux functionality. It also does not matter because once Geohotz owned the device it was his to do with as he pleased, and publishing the root key is not legally wrong. You cannot copywrite a root key. It would be like copywriting your email password. That was the only thing that was posted. To which the Jailbreaking case protects working around such protections on devices one owns.What does the Copyright Office's ruling mean?
The short answer is that jailbreaking your iPhone or other mobile device will no longer violate a controversial federal copyright law called the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, or DMCA. Bypassing a manufacturer's protection mechanisms to allow "handsets to execute software applications" is now permitted.
Absolutely and by that same measure, if someone took something you worked hard for, wouldn't you be angry? If someone put in the work, saving and effort to buy a PS3 yet once they buy it it either has advertised functions missing and functions forcibly removed and the person why bought the hardware has something that they can no longer use for their intended purpose, how can anyone expect them NOT to be mad? Im sorry, but no amount of "FREEGAMEZ" is enough to make me ignore when a company is mistreating its customers and hiding behind litigation and legislation to do so.If someone took your hard work and gave it away for free wouldn't you be angry?
