Look, I understand that the Granny Police are swelling in rank and that
they no longer have that duty of seeing that people have only one child,
but bargaining collectively and then not buying that way is fraud on
first-parties class-action recourse.
So of course it's wonderful in the cases where there isn't any; call up a
neighbor and grab a cup of the machine-state you want to do Blu-Ray
playback without a key revocation or trace--they're your privacy providers
at some rate. A washer? Look, I appreciate the way that machine-tending
is a creepy scary nonterminating task and look forward to seeing The Ring
3 uncover a child forced to live in the washer and turn the bin even in
death (road trips to visit Dave Winer at some faded ancestral home,
asking directions to the IP address all over, a MySpace photo which causes
its viewers to scare giraffes off inaugural flights of
lighter-than-air-WiMax-ferries...thing writes itself), but this isn't the
level of Party Performance I looked forward to.
There's this optimal trust group see, of people who you ask 'will it mess
you up if I buy this for me or us?' which is not going to involve people
you met when circumstances led to the demise of your old kit. At all.
