The last straw

I’m trying to sit down and watch a DVD at the moment, so far I’ve had the infuriating anti-piracy trailer, a selection of trailers for films I’ll never watch, an unskippable advert for chocolate, and finally a long advertorial, and that’s before I’ve even got to the main menu. In future I think I’ll save my time and money and download a pirated copy which doesn’t come with all the unwelcome cruft at the beginning.

One day companies will learn that if they make it harder to use their product, people will go elsewhere.

    Ahh but you didn;t know they were on there, so you’d bought it before you knew.

    Sometimes I find you can skip a lot of the crap by going straight to the main menu, but not always.

    The only way to skip stuff on most of our rented DVDs is to press the track skip every new bit. Or fast foward. Darned annoying.

    It’s too late, we’re all already been brainwashed.
