After a bachelor in Human Sciences, a multimedia postgraduate and PhD in philosophy, Jupiter de la Bâtardise has developed several photography projects, literary works, short films and video documentaries throughout Asia and Europe.
Same thing happened years ago with the megapixel race in still photography, when manufactures marketed their cameras based in the number of megapixels and not on glass quality, sensors or images processing. Most people won’t need any still camera shooting more than 6megapixels the same way most people won’t need go over 1080p. But here we are again, over and over, thinking that bigger is better and that to have a Ferrari will get you faster thought the city traffic jams than driving a Cinquecento.
These are BAD and SAD news, because they should remind us three simple things:
1. How responsible (literally days!!!!) can manufactures be when it comes down to money and not losing a bit of their margin profits, in opposition to how many years it can take them to implement any user request.
2. These corporations ultimately care for their shareholders and not for their customers.
3. This “easy-hack” is probably the last one to ever happen since they realized people are not dumb, but inquisitive and creative; therefore they will try to prevent such thing from happening again on any other future model.
( It’d be interesting if someone writes an eye-opening article about all of that! -and more!- )
