"So why aren't theater personnel simply removing the 3-D lenses? The answer is that it takes time, it costs money, and it requires technical know-how above the level of the average multiplex employee. [...] issues with the Sonys are more than mechanical. Opening the projector alone involves security clearances and Internet passwords, 'and if you don't do it right, the machine will shut down on you.'".
I can't tell. Are you being sarcastic?
My "are you being sarcastic" is because phuff's wording made it sound as if she/he thought they were introducing new information ... ;)
I'd love to be one of their competitors right now.
(And no DRM either :)
I have never used a Vaio, but I would question how much one contributes to being a perfect dev box. You can install Vim, Chromium and Xmonad on any other machine.
im still using some video monitor of theirs from the late 70s to catch up on youtubes.
Again, I haven't used Sony stuff from the 70s, it may well be fantastic. However, that was over 3 decades ago, and irrelevant when evaluating their behaviour in recent times. I certainly won't be buying anything from Sony anytime soon - I simply don't trust the brand.
