New DVD Player

Posted by rom on July 10, 2005

This afternoon I was able to find some time to get a new DVD player. The usual practice in the Philippines is to open the package and test it before the buyer leaves the store. I was in a hurry but figured that it’d be worth my time – even if I know that the package was factory sealed.

The player was transferred to the booth and hooked up to a TV for testing. The salesperson started to “configure” it and changed the region code to 0 and then said,

“Sir, now you can play all pirated DVDs available”

I just smirked since I don’t buy pirated DVDs. Anyway, this is another reason why education is really important in combatting piracy.

Oh well…
