Sponge Life

There are thieves, there are crooks, there are media owners, and then, just below the lowest pond life, come those wonderful folk at NewsCorp.

Have a look at this screen:














It would seem to indicate that this edition of Lost is 'free' (I already pay £20 a month for this service as well as paying for Sky via my Virgin Media subscription).

But, no matter what I click on I cannot bring up this 'free' clip.

The first problem is one of design. This is without any doubt the worst interactive service ever 'designed' - but this is probably deliberate. These people do not want to see internet TV succeed.

So, time to cut free of Uncle Murdoch and his evil, cynical empire.. How I wish there was a viable commercial competitor to this dreadful company, to whom we are just sponges, from whom they will wring every last penny...

This blog in no way endorses piracy, but why is BitTorrent so much easier than legitimate services ?
