Bucky Katt: Meh! I'm still happily using my VCR. I prefer to stick with tried and true technologies. New innovations are unreliable.
StreetlightInTheGhetto: We didn't have cable growing up, and also ate dinner with Grandma every Sunday night. So my dad taped the Simpsons, with commercials unless dinner ended early enough to pause them, for about 10 years. There may have been one or two missed episodes, but on the off chance we did he'd just get it on the rerun.That said, oh yes, fun times were had in college with those tapes./gotta find a cheap VHS player somewhere
pippi longstocking: Those estimates are based on MPAA calculations, they actually just sold 5 copies.
illannoyin: That's almost as impressive as the largest police bust in Canada...[bp1.blogger.com image 281x400]
BumpInTheNight: I thought one of the biggest talking points about piracy was how the pirate's products were superior to the MPAA's ones?
Day_Old_Dutchie: The carriers here in Canada are basically three monopolies..they charge exorbitant bandwidth fees for Internet over a paltry 25 MB/month, so you either use their (expensive) entertainment options or use DVD because it costs way to much to watch over the net. And they give the government campaign contributions bribes and have high-powered lobbyists to keep it that way.Greedy bastards.
