A Pictorial View of What You Miss By Watching Pirated DVD's

Our younger son had his birthday at the local theater this past weekend, and part of that was getting a tour of the projection area, getting to splice a trailer into a reel, and even starting the movie they were seeing and checking audio levels. It is a really cool time, and the local theater manager does a great job with the kids. I took note that even after doing all of the start-up in the booth, getting his special theater display poster and other stuff for the kids in the party, and heading on downstairs and into our theater and being seated … we hadn’t even missed any trailers.

Our local theater is a Regal Cinema, meaning there are actual commercials before the trailers and eventually you get to the actual movie. Earlier in the week we had gotten a recently released movie from RedBox to watch, and the experience was similar – we got started late and all we really wanted to do was watch the film. Yet we had to endure the FBI warnings, a ‘you wouldn’t steal a car’ video clip, other junk and unskippable trailers before getting to the actual main menu – and of course my constant tapping of the ‘Main Menu’ button didn’t get me anywhere. I am strongly anti-piracy, but when I saw this image on Best Article Every Day this morning I just had to laugh … it is a sad reminder of how the paying customer is the one who gets punished.

I have loved technology for as long as I can remember - and have been a computer gamer since the PDP-10! Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!

  1. That’s one advantage if you buy a movie through iTunes; you don’t get all that crap, either. And if you get a movie that has “iTunes Plus” features, you also get all the added stuff that would be on a DVD, but none of the FBI warnings, death threats, commercials, etc.

    Now that I think about it, when you stream content from Netflix, you don’t get any of that nonsense either. Hmmmmm . . .
