Hdcp Being Broken

All over the net I'm seeing news articles about a method for breaking HDCP that works is in the public domain.

What isn't clicking (no pun intended) for me is why is this big news? Can't we already decode blueray movies? (Not that I would know course :P )

What makes this a big deal?

True, but with the breaking the HDCP you can now make a perfect bit-for-bit copy, rather than decoding and reencoding. Or so a few sites have pointed out, I don't completely get it.

Ripping the blu-ray will make a perfect copy... dumping a DVI stream is going to need lots and lots of space. DVI is a uncompressed digital signal... capable of 7.92Gb/s data transmission, you probably don't want to store this data, it will fill your hard disks so fast.

Damn 7.92 GB/s? I want Wifi with those speeds!!!

Not now, may be in the next 10 years.

But you could use 10Gbit Ethernet instead.

maybe less then 10 years. look how long computers have been around and how fast its progressing. i still remember using big floppy drives on a C64. now i have a 1.5TB hard drive. i remember when i got my first GB hard drive it was like 25gb or something like that. an im like "25gb?!?! OMG ill never fill that up!!!" now i could fill that up in a day. think about all the kids now that never even had to look for porn on a dial up modem. i remember looking through the list of dial ups with local area codes so i didnt get charged an arm an a leg. thats untill i figured out how to get free long distance. ;) oh the good 'ol days. remember zip disks? lol that was a fail. omg forget war driving remember war dialing!

May be you right less than 10 years. I remember the other day, I was browsing the Computerworld website and came across an article that talked about a new wireless chipset that supported transfer speeds of 400Mbps, it may not sound a lot but its definitely a big improvement in this area. I guess give it another few more years and we will hopefully have the first wireless standard that can support gigabits speeds.
