Product Ownership Rights

Traditionally, whether a person buys an appliance or a car, he/she owns the product once they have a receipt. As pointed out by Wired writer Kyle Wiens on Monday, April 21, John Deere is attempting to change the definition of ownership based on the Digital Millenium Copyright Act.

As more products contain computer parts and proprietary software used to make those parts work, manufacturers have decided that the only way to protect software and hardware from copying and hacking is by claiming that product “owners” only receive a “license” for use of a product during its lifetime instead of an actual transfer of ownership. Personal computer manufacturers already advise owners that they have purchased the right to use software and not the right to modify, hack or copy it.

SuperLawyers says that the United States Copyright Office has agreed to consider these arguments further in July during a hearing. If the manufacturers get their way, they could be allowed to sue consumers who hack or even repair their products.

On one hand, their arguments are valid to protect their software and hardware designs. On the other… If they really wanted to take it too far, they could require that only technicians certified by them repair those products, which could shut down many small mom and pop repair shops and prevent product “life hacks” being performed by users. It could even prevent derivative product creation by users.

Guitar Hero Will Return!

‘Guitar Hero’ was a game that everyone loved, but it hasn’t seen a sequel in five years. However, the legendary game is making a comeback. When ‘Guitar Hero’ first came out, fans raved about how awesome it was. Sadly, ‘Guitar Hero’ would fall off the map because of the release of the next generation consoles. The video game world would soon replace ‘Guitar Hero’ with ‘Rock Band.’ However, fans said that ‘Rock Band’ could never replace ‘Guitar Hero.’ Game designers tried to spice up ‘Rock Band’ with new music, but eventually it got old. After the departure of ‘Guitar Hero,’ music simulation games became a thing of the past.

Gamers at Anastasia Date have learned that, after five long years, game developers have announced that a new ‘Guitar Hero’ will be coming this fall. Information on the game has been leaked, and it appears that the guitar for the game is different. However, the guitar’s design seems better and more realistic than its predecessor. Also, the graphics have been upgraded to an unbelievable new level. The game designers have also revealed that there will be several different views to play from in the new ‘Guitar Hero.’ This means that gamers can look out into a realistic crowd in first-person mode. Fans cannot wait to get their hands on the new game and guitar. For more information on ‘Guitar Hero,’ visit Rollingstone.

Sold for 75,000 pounds to a former sommelier by the name of Christian Vanneque.. The wine won’t be consumed, but instead put on display in one of the two restraints that Vanneque has. But though he doesn’t plan to drink it now, he plans to one day. “I will never resell it, I’m not a fancy collector. I’m not rich, I work very hard,” Vanneque said, “This is important that it’s not connected to investing. I’m a sommelier. Wine is for drinking!”

And Yet More Rumors Emerge About Suicide Squad

At this point, there are so many rumors circulating about the upcoming D.C. Cinematic Universe villain ensemble Suicide Squad that it is pretty hard to take them serious. Brad Reifler has read that a recent report is suggesting the main villain is going to be a huge disappointment because he is not even a “C-lister” as far as D.C. villains go. Also, speculation exists that Tom Hardy will play a smaller cameo part in the film as opposed to bowing out completely.

At some point, you have to tune these rumors out because the Suicide Squad film has not even begun shooting principle photography. A lot of the tall tales about the project is based on really dubious sources and “friend of a friend” rumors. Maybe there will be a C-list villain in the film. How does anyone know how big of a role he/she will play?

No one does. Perhaps a major villain is going to play a much bigger role and no one has heard about this yet.

Suicide Squad is a very interesting idea for D.C.’s second biggest film because the goal of the movie is to establish credible villains and not present throwaway ones that plagued a lot of the Marvel projects. Hardcore fans cannot wait for this new film to arrive in theaters and their enthusiasm is turning into wild chatter. There is no harm in being really jazzed about a new film’s release, but let’s not get too carried away with the rumors.

Marvel Studios Skipping SDCC Presence This Year

While Marvel has usually made a big production of their press during SDCC, its 2014 presentation was rather muted and lacked any major news. At that time, Joaquin Phoenix was in talks to portray Doctor Strange and scheduling for Phase III of the MCU was still unfinished. These underwhelming bits of information forced Marvel Studios to concentrate their panel on the last installments of Phase II.

According to James Gunn, writer and director of “Guardians of the Galaxy,” Marvel Studios will not be present at SDCC 2015. Gunn quipped that Marvel’s absence from the event meant that it would be unlikely he would attend. When analysts step back and observe the trends, Marvel’s decision makes sense. The studio held a stranglehold on the press in October, where the completed schedule for Phase III was made known during a press event. Then, the news of working out an agreement with Sony for Spider-Man’s film rights made even more headlines.

With its consistent ability to draw attention, Marvel seems like it can afford to skip the event in order to release its information at another point in time of its choosing. Those looking for potential events where Marvel might reveal new information, there’s the D23 Expo in August which may also be used by Disney to plug “Star Wars.” While this decision might not please many comic book fans, like Zeca Oliveira (terra.com.br), it makes sense from a business perspective.

Computers Are Transforming Our Lives Quickly and People Need to Keep Up

Computers are able to do more things with every passing year. Automated checkout machines are becoming commonplace at supermarkets. They tell us which way to turn to get to our destination, and before long they will be doing everything involved in driving us to our destination. Haidar Barbouti said we have had spell checkers for a while now and grammar checkers are getting more sophisticated with each passing year, as Chron describes. Now computers are even writing. They are getting so good at it that, as a quiz in the New York Times points out, it is getting hard to spot writing churned out by a computer versus that with the human touch.

As wonderful as advances in computer technology can be, there will be some economic dislocations that will occur. So much for the traditional starting job in high school of being a cashier with the advent of automated checkouts. When Google self-driving cars that are available for anyone to use for a while and then return become commonplace, cab drivers had better have another line of work they can get into. Additionally, speaking of cab drivers, they are already being endangered by the technology of smartphones and ride services such as Uber. Overall, these are positive things, and we will be better off in the long run for these changes. People just need to see which way the wind is blowing, and those in affected industries will have to line up other occupations. This includes, apparently, those of us making a living putting words on the page.

Finally The Game And Meek Mill Collab

If you know anything about the struggle, then you will definitely be able to relate with all of us here at Imaging Advantage on the Game and Meek Mill’s new song, “The Soundtrack”. It is a song made by the people, and for the people.

This week is all about collaborations and team work. The music industry just welcomed a colab between Jay Electronica and Jay Z, and now Meek Mill and The Game.

The Game has been working very hard in the studio on new music that will follow up his latest album, The Documentary. We don’t know if this new song is going to be featured on Meek Mill’s album, or on The Game’s album, or both. All we know is that we can’t wait to hear more of those two and this song definitely shows the fans that they belong together in the studio.

The Game has been very involved with helping the city around him, and this song is just a small piece of a much bigger picture that The Game is trying to draw to his fans in order for him to tell the story how it is. Since 2pac days, rappers have slowly started to talk about the real problems less and less, and are now more focused on announcing how many cars and jets they own, and how they love breaking the law and dealing drugs.

It is all rap after all, but its nice to listen to some powerful lyrics every now and then.

Sony Has Sold Over 20 Million PlayStation 4 Consoles

Sony has sold 20 million PlayStation 4 consoles. As on march 1, the company says that it has sold 20.2 million of the popular gaming console. That’s a tremendous number, and one that represents just the number of consoles that have been actually purchased, not all those shipped out to retailers to be potentially sold.

Over the coming months, Sony plans to expand the number of games it is offering for the console, perhaps ultimately increasing those sale numbers even more. Games on the way for the PlayStation 4 include Metal Gear Solid V, Batman: Arkham Knight, Bloodborne, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.

According to Brad Reifler, sony released the PlayStation 4 roughly a year ago. The console was both announced and released around the same time as Microsoft’s Xbox One. The two consoles are highly competitive with each other. Both consoles have different games that are made available only for their respective console. Many gamers also find themselves picking either PlayStation or Xbox rather than owning both consoles.
