Egoy3k: robohobo: Seems like a good thread to ask this, sorry for the jack. Does anyone have a suggestion for a decent mini-micro pc for use as a media center? Able to run full HD/basic internet use? Something I can attach a big ole multi-TB hard drive to...I just built an ridiculously overpowered desktop for gaming that can also handle media for the entire house.I can stream media to my xbox or a laptop, download media torrents, burn media and play a game all at once if necessary. Actually with the power of modern computers the real limiting factor on my system is the router which I corrected with DD-wrt but could have corrected by buying a better router which you should be ready to do before installing third party firmware on your router anyway since there is a definite possibility that you can brick it.
Loreweaver: red5ish: If and when something of this nature is implemented you may choose to opt out by not purchasing or using it.Which means you will never be permitted to watch a TV show or movie EVER again, nor will you be allowed to listen to music, play video games, and will not be allowed to sit in any vehicle equipped with a stereo and/or video system.If the RIAA and MPAA have their way, all forms of entertainment will be tightly controlled by their laws, and anyone who does not give in to their demands will be thrown in jail, or will no longer be legally able to function in society, since you won't be legally allowed to possess any device which isn't tied directly into their per-viewer fee system.

DoBeDoBeDo: sasbazooka: I kinda had a feeling they were going this way. I know it's paranoia, but I disconnect my kinect when not using it.I feel the same way, but I walk up to it and spread my cheeks wide to give them a good view of the brown eye. Hopefully if they spo any polips they'll shoot me an email or Xbox messageDoBeDoBeDo,We noticed a small mass forming on your rectal tissue, you might want to get that checked out.The Microsoft Team
Fark_Guy_Rob: It's not an original idea. It's not even implemented. The 'hard' parts behind it aren't detailed. It's just a sci-fi pipe-dream they can call 'dibs' on and then either they'll come up with a cool way to market it, or wait for someone else to do it and get a licensing deal/sue them.
