DRM on steroids controls backfires on Blu-ray
Read about the latest DRM blunder, on the front page:

High-Def Digest adds that both Samsung and LG plan to issue firmware updates within the next two weeks.
Gee, now we know why we need our Blu-Ray player plugged into the Internet all the time!

I just set up a wireless connection for a friend for his blu-ray. This is silly.

Isn't it amazing! all those years on tape cassettes with people coping and robbing them blind, surely they must have come close to going under! Makes one wonder where they got all the money to throw away on this trash?

Talk about obsessing about a really bad idea!

And this helps the legitimate paying consumer how?

As bluray rips are on torrent sites, this sure hasn't stopped the pirates.
Or inconvenienced them in the slightest (except maybe the 40GB uncompressed downloads).

This isn't a new DRM. It's been part of the Bluray specification for quite some time (like years). The fact that two manufacturers hadn't actually tested that their implementation worked correctly tells you something - perhaps that you shouldn't be buying from them as they haven't tested their kit properly?
