In episode 800 (congrats!), @davehamilton and @johnfbraun were talking about Andrew's problem of why he couldn't play his content to a projector. @brianmonroe suggested it might be HDCP, or High Definition Copy Protection (which is what I was hollering into the wind while listening on my run.)

I thought you folks might enjoy watching me ask Steve Jobs about this at the Wall Street Journal's D8 conference.  If you jump to 86:35 (and suffer an ad) you can see it here:

Forgive me if you have seen this before, I dust it off every few years when the topic comes up.
