"The cable companies have figured out the great truth of America: If you want to do something evil, put it inside something boring. Apple could put the entire text of Mein Kampf inside the iTunes user agreement & you'd just go 'Agree. Agree. Agree.'"

If apple did that it would make the news and everybody would know about it. Some would still agree.

Yes it would be possible to do so.

I think TV is getting worse and worse. I really enjoyed "the game of thrones" but it's getting so vulgar and violent I don't like it anymore

I don't watch the show often, but it can't be any worse than the books.

My daughter said it was worse. The show actually has more rape scenes in it and killing of babies.

Have you seen the South Park episode on this?

It is pretty funny. A little disgusting, but they did a good job making fun of people that don't read the terms and conditions.

IMHO eventually there will be a major ToS lawsuit that will be a game-changer. I heard if the average web user read every ToS they encountered they would spend 2 months of every year just reading ToS. It's physically impossible and therefore invalid.

Wait a minute! I agree with your basic logic, but the math is off. Two months out of the year means 1/6 of your time. Assuming they mean only time you are awake, that's about 2 1/2 hours a day. I don't think so!

I'm only reporting what I heard, but have you ever printed out an Apple ToS? It's several pages of fine print and they release a new one almost every month. For the average reader to read and absorb (not just skim) I would believe it's 2.5 hours/day.

You also have to consider all of the ToS you encounter just visiting a website. They're everywhere now!!

I recently agreed to the "fascinating terms of service."

I thought it was amusing. I didn't read it...

It was so good. I might make a separate poll just about that segment.

The last episode I watched was the one when he did a segment on the Indian election.

As someone who is fairly well-versed in Indian politics, that entire segment had me laughing hysterically. Comedic gold.

I haven't seen much his show. But having free time for the first time since last august is great. I'll check it out.
