Very fascinating! This is the first time I have heard this speaker. And I very much agree with the contents of what is being said here. This is but the tip of a great ice burg. Many shows, and things floating around have connected to what he is saying. One for instance comes to mind, futurerama . A couple of the newer ones just put out, if you know the episodes you will make the connection instantly. Such as giving free will to a robot. Such as being able to overclock a system you bought and paid for once.
I highly recommend this video.. Thank you for posting this.
There is so much to be said about GPL3, and the likes of companies prohibiting us as "owners" and users to make these safer in the sense which is being talked about here.
I for one have a great love of code, and binary, the ins and outs of hexadecimal and taking things apart as to better understand the code they inject to protect and block me from making changes.
Tho with enough work and time, these codes can be bypassed by other code. I won't get to far into the details on that, but its all part of the retrofit. And its all very fascinating to me, and any other would be ROM/emulator junkies out here. That is but a scratch on the surface of the true nature of this topic.edit on 13-10-2012 by zysin5 because: (no reason given)
