Boycott Sony

http://www.usatoday.com/tech/news/computersecurity/2005-11-13-digital-rights_x.htm

This is amazing to me. Sony builds copy protection into it's CD's that puts a rootkit onto your computer. This is a form of technology that is based on the same techniques used by computer viruses. And it opens up your computer to exploits.

Someone should tell Sony it may be their intellectual property, but it's your damned computer.

I am boycotting all Sony products from now on. Software, hardware, music, the works. If a company thinks it can pull this kind of thing, it should pay the (economic) price. And, the moral price. I'm going to make sure I tell everyone I know that Sony pulls crap like this and they should avoid all Sony products now and into the future.

Bastards.
