On Second Thought Edition

Top Story

  • Sony has decided it will not be removing Discovery Channel content that its customers had "bought" on the PlayStation Network.  (Notebook Check)

    Of course, if they can remove it, you haven't bought it.

    Streaming content licenses are rarely perpetual, which means that content "bought" on secondary platforms can vanish at any time.  That's bad enough if the secondary platform offers refunds, but Sony didn't even bother to do that.

    This is why the studios want to destroy physical media.  Already Disney has stopped shipping Blu-Rays or DVDs to Australia.

    Which is no loss for Disney's current offerings, but their back catalog is a different matter.

2 Yeah, that's quite the "tell me you don't understand typography without saying you don't understand typography" rant. His sole use case is "A/B comparison of programming fonts in my preferred editor", and he's not even doing that well.

This is what happens when your business is ad revenue, and most everything else you do is an endless succession of money pits, and you only care about the ads so you can feed the money pits, instead of turning them off.
The first thing to do to Google is to forcibly divest DoubleClick.  Then they won't have the money to try to run everyone's lives.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
