I was surprised and amused after discovering that Sony (the manufacturer of my Vaio laptop) have disabled the audio signal recording TO PREVENT PIRACY, based on one Sony laptop reviewer.

I don't know if other companies have also disabled this standard audio feature in their machines, but I'm pretty sure it won't help at all in protecting Sony Music artists from piracy. My old Thinkpad could have scored a lucky punch if such weakness was dicovered earlier. Don't know what I'm saying? Read here.
