    ok i've been reading the news as usual and have just come accross a very worrying article about DRM

    now im thinking 125V through your computer will screw it over big time but isnt that kinda impossible because the PSU steps it down to 12V ??, this cant be true or microsoft will be owing alot of people alot of money and i will be extremely [​IMG]

    article is here http://p2pnet.net/story/6867

    Yes ... No

    Sure, they are getting better and better at protecting their Copywrite, but that's about it. You are gonna find it impossible to play anything ... so don't buy it. ;)

    Yeah right, popycrap. That would surly ensure a Law suite of 500,000 or so .. as sending "125-volt anti-p2p DRM 'charge' into computer chassis" what a load of twaddle.

    :rolleyes:

    Fair Play feedback 'instructs' the buds to emit a piercing, high-pitched scream in stereo at 250 decibels.

    Simple laws of physics here, if the sound pressure of a jet plane taking off at 1m is approx 140 dBa, I would dearly love to know how the hell a pair of ear buds could produce 250 dBa. :eek:

    I was going to calculate just how many time louder that would make the ear buds, but I gave up trying to work out the log scale!:confused:

    If they could actually produce that level of sound I think there would be plenty of PA manufacturers interested in the new technology!:D

    Don't download, copy, convert to MP3, listen, enjoy any music, DVD or film unless you pay us for it ... or we will make your life hell. ;)

    Oh, no wait, they do that already ... :D



    Gabby, it's all about copywrite. :thumb:

    OK - so what about this - converting shop bought CDs to MP3 format via Nero - is that OK to do or not??

    Love

    Well err, hmmm, it is still 'technically' illegal ... but for your own personal use we here in the UK get away with it ... What the music & film industry are really peeved about is the amount of 'stuff' you can download off the Net.

    I have 12 hours of MP3s on my PC ... but that is for me, I ain't sharing them, I just want to listen without the bother of finding the next track ... but if I started to use one of them P2P programs to 'share' my music, then I'm gonna deserve all I get off the Law.

    Hi Mucks and others

    Just to clarify - CD to MP3 format is entirely for personal use in my household - playing music on MP3/PC.

    Love

    In the UK I don’t think the NHS. ENT. Department would abide by that decision, with those decibels [250 dBa.] we would all end up being deaf?????:eek:
    WHAT DID YOU SAY:D
