And Microsoft just patented technology (based on the kinect) to have your TV watch you, and stop the movie you are watching if it decides there are too many people in the room for the media license that you purchased. That sure sounds like 1984 all over again. It will suck when your TV asks you to authorize purchasing a license upgrade, or have somebody leave the room, before you can resume watching your "licensed" blu-ray media that you "purchased" at a store. That alone will encourage piracy, just so you can have privacy from your TV and the media companies.
Multiple 1984 confluences happening here and now.
And isn't 1984 also the ebook that made amazon infamous for reaching into kindles and deleting it?
