    Default Amazon hijacks your internet connection

    :evil: Amazon's new video download service, Amazon Unbox, opened for business this month. With some amount of fanfare, Amazon Unbox invites you to make a big deal of the Amazon Unbox experience.

    But they fail to tell you that their Amazon Unbox video player is hijacking your Internet connection.

    The article got it wrong.
    Amazon are governed by the laws that exist for the benifit of the major movie makers.
    They will not allow anyone to have a legal movie download service unless they can prove that the sytem will not lead to illegal burning.
    Amazon are caught between having such a service with all the rubbish or none at all.
    The current "approved" method of downloading movies is doomed to failure. I cannot see a family forgoing their new LCD/Plasma TV to gather around a computer to watch a movie especially when DVD hire is cheaper, more flexible and better quality.
    Take control of your life. Leave others to control their own.
