'Progress' in no particular order:
Smell-O-Vision and Aroma-Rama
Todd E O
The 30 line Televisor
High definition TV
Reel to reel
Stop, stop, I hear.
Peer to peer ( P2P) ..Aaah,!
Maybe this is something for Reelstreeters?
Files (spoken or written books, music, still images or complete films) can now be uploaded (sent) or downloaded (received) from computers.
Just suppose you had a nice old film that us nice old Reelstreeters wanted to see..
Or just suppose that you wanted to see a nice old film that another nice old Reelstreeter had hidden away? It seems the rest of the world has heard our wishes and sorted it for us.
Every day more movies are put onto Peer to Peer (P2P) sites and all free..Mmnnn luvelee!..But..
Is it legal?
Well, many old movies are now out of copyright and in the public domain.
The makers of newer movies are not best pleased, though and say that using P2P for copyrighted material is illegal.
The world has been some way down this road before, by copying films off TV, onto video recorders, but now with P2P, films are re-distributed to a wide audience.
Will it end in joy or tears?
Watch this screen.
