Here's an interesting Hybrid by ASRock, a P67 chipset combined with a LGA 1156 (not 1155) socket.
for better gaming performance and 720p 120Hz frame sequencing 3D video (e.g. Acer H5360), as well as proper 23.976Hz support. ZOTAC ZBOX Fermion (with the above mb inside):
The following case is as small as ASRock Vision 3D: HTPC-ITX2
120W is enough for SNB with on-die GPU, but not enough for SNB+GT 430, however (150W should be good). Overall this custom-built system is cheaper than ASRock Vision 3D and performs better (if you use GT 430).
If it wasn't for thieving schmucks who seem to feel it's their right to take any content they desire for free we wouldn't be in this situation. DRM costs studios money to implement, quite a bit of money. It's doubtful that they like it any more than the rest of the honest people out there who pay for content since it drives up the cost for those who do rightfully and honestly pay.
And here's the biggest rub. Copyright law demands DRM. Content producers and distributors, by law, must make a concerted effort to protect their content. If not, the content producers lose their ownership rights and distrbutors can be subject to lawsuits for not properly protecting ownership rights.
So don't blame the studios/content producers/distributors. They are merely doing what the law demands. Point the finger at the thieving scumbags who steal that which doesn't belong to them in the first place and makes the rest of us have to jump through hoops to legally obtain that content and drives up the end cost to us in the process.
So you don't believe in recording a vhs or beta tape, recording off of tv, what about making rips to your pc from dvd you.bought? I pay for so much content a month its ridiculous. I have a huge BLURAY/hddvd/dvd collection that I bought, I Pay for high speed internet, playon ,Netflix, sling, cellphone media, ppv, vod, theatre tickets, rent blurays, rentdvds, etc. I agrree pirateing at a malicious thieving level is bad, ie: torrents from theatres movies, taking your camera into the theatre etc. You can't tell me you have never copied a rented vhs? I hate thievery too.
I was saying that I think getting more and more restrictive of content is not a good thing and I hope sb DRM dosnt further that, that's all.
