People like Hollings and Berman can just go to hell!!! Go Intel and HP for their efforts to kick greedy Hollywood’s but!!! Forcing to put copy protections in all consumer electronics would stifle innovation big time. That is why I just hate people like Ernest Hollings and Howard Berman.

People like Hollings and Berman don’t deserve to be considered human they’re so wothless!!!

This is very good news!:slight_smile:
