> the industry is shifting – not only its medium, not only its focus, but with it – and most significantly for theatres like us – it’s shifting the element of control

That's a bingo. Like with so many things DRM, where rights are no longer balanced and only the concerns of one side, the DRM-issuing side are ever taken into account, this is a power-grab.

Did the author really just omit any mention of USB flash drives in that article? Or am I just slightly blind?

Utterly unintentional and somewhat hilarious misspelling on my part, especially since I used to work for a startup that made a statute search engine.

Would you consider taking a screenshot of how that looks?

> The hack, which has led to the network being unavailable for over a week, has left observers wondering if a company as vast and seemingly advanced as Sony can get hit, who out there is safe?

Thank you, Dave Lee, for revealing early on in the article that you don't understand the subject matter and that the article won't be worth reading.

Leaking things to Murdoch?

Hell no!

PS: I think it's pretty clear who will be "leaking" things there: Lobbyists and PR firms who want to further insulate their wholly aware paymasters from accountability.

Does the "tycoon" hold US or Russian citizenship (or both)?

This reminds me of a similarly unethical behaviour I've encountered recently: I tried to buy a certain rare electronics component, and found it listed by a bunch of people. There were lots of bait-and-switchers in the Google results, who only had the part listed for the googlebot to pick up, but as soon as I actually tried to order the part, their site told me they didn't actually have it and suggested I buy something else from them.

It gets worse: When I finally did find a seller who allowed me to order the part, they accepted my order -- and then came back later saying that, oh no, actually they didn't have it either, but would I like to convert my order into an order for something else? (Fuck off.)

I still don't have the part.

And that's how the American economy "works".
