Linus says adblock is piracy: is he right?

Some interesting moral considerations.  When I first bought TIVO to record television, it came with a 30-second skip button, which I found wonderful for skipping commercials.  The advertisers were up in arms over this and eventually pressured TIVO to remove the feature.  (I think that it may have been removed during a software update.)  The advertisers claimed that there was an implied contract with the TV viewers to watch commercials to pay for content.

Not sure if I have sent this yet.  I'm not a big fan of music, but I do like some classical music and movie tunes.

Famous orangutan driving a golf cart.

From the comments:

His behaviour while driving is very much like a human's. His expression, the way he's gripping the steering wheel with one hand and his semi relaxed posture as he's cruising along, scanning the road ahead. I'd trust him to drive me around lmao.

That would be boss cruising around with him haha

Maybe this was the true self driving car we needed all along
