There is no control with IE. Unless I am missing it, I have to go all the way over to the right to hit the home button then all the way left to go back and forward? Might not be a big deal with a small monitor, but when you have widescreen and gaming size monitor it can be a pain. Oo  
If you were right, I would be agreeing with you.

Yeah, theaters are just calling attention to this.
I guess they don't want to open the door for an eventual decently priced option, but $60 is absurd. Those rabid enough to pay $60 for something are probably rabid enough to see it 5 times in theaters as well.

And isn't it starting with a Brett Ratner film?

I'd pay $60 to watch plenty of movies at home. I have 2 kids under two so going to the movies is almost impossible. (and we're going to have a third!) I've wanted to pay these kind of prices a lot. Especially around the big summer releases.

I think the movie theaters are simply trying to protect their products being exclusive to them and don't care a bit about anyone who doesn't go into the theaters. There is no price they'd be happy with because they don't get a cut of those dollars. Although if they could make this work by profit sharing I'd be happy.

There is a huge untapped market out there for these big movies. People already download and watch the biggest movies on the internet...why not let some of us do it legally? I'd love to go to the movies in most cases, but it's just not worth all the trouble some nights and staying in and spending $60 would be better than going out and spending double on a babysitter, dinner, parking (?), and snacks/popcorn. (Easily $100)

NoScript + Adblock Plus = FUCK YOU, TROJANS!

Seriously. My brother, cousin, and mom (as good examples of virus-prone computer users) use Firefox, and very rarely (if ever) have any issues/trojans/breaches. My Dad uses Internet Explorer, and gets a virus every other week. I don't know why he won't switch. Refuses to.

I wouldn't touch IE with a ten foot pole (unless I'm fixing someone's computer... in which case I'll just install Firefox over it. >_>)

A lot of malware is browser agnostic these days but in my experience people who use IE are usually the same types of users to mindlessly click through prompts and get it. So it's hard to really be sure of results because the nature of the whole scenario and the users involved skews things.

It's probably more of a comfort thing that I use Firefox exclusively. Haven't tried ie since ie7 and have never tried Chrome.

I use IE over Firefox 90% of the time. I get no trojans.

Maybe your dad needs to go to fewer sketchy porn sites, haha.

The irony is that it is Microsoft that is perpetuating the use of obsolete and unsafe browsers by not offering upgrades to users on XP. Firefox and Chrome keep you up to date automatically regardless of OS or version.
