Geek Smack! Tech News:
Samsung Buys Sony out in LCD
If you have been hearing the news, there is a thing called Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), which seems to step all over people’s rights. While we need to combat piracy, and while SOPA does have some good points to it, the act is far from being something less than a dictatorship.
GoDaddy announced they backed SOPA, along with over 390 other companies. Since then, a lot of those companies backed down, but GoDaddy has been getting the most flack. They lost a lot of domains during a 48 hour period.
I use GoDaddy. Switching for me means a $500 price tag, and I don’t have that kind of cash to throw around like that. Besides, I think they’ve made amends, and their tools saved my rear on Saturday when I messed up.
