There are always exceptions. Such as, you aren't allowed to drive four-wheelers on main roads, or ride Segways on sidewalks (UK). Just because I can drive a car on the main roads, or ride a scooter on the sidewalks, does that mean I have every right to take a four-wheeler on the interstate? Or embarrassingly ride a Segway on the sidewalk?
No, but if there's a law that lets you do one thing while simultaneously banning the other that is the exact same bar the device it works on, someone is bound to notice.

You can "bet" all you want. And surprise, consoles are NOT phones. If the legal definition of the DMCA (not the DCMA, as you put it, which further proves your lack of knowledge on this subject) calls attention to Telephones, that doesn't mean consoles, or DVR's, or DVD players, it solely limits the law to telephones. Each have a separate function, correct? But according to you, they don't.
Your arguments are filled will holes and lies and untruths. Please come back once you understand the scope and ramifications of the subject.
No, but it's just as bad.
How do you know? Are you a Sony employee? Microsoft can tell if you run burnt game discs, it would be very easy for Sony to add in a check with a new key (One that isn't hacked easily) that each PS3 has to do which checks parameters that hackers can't help but change in the OS, or heck, even just a list of running processes.
One letter difference, plus that post was typed up at 5 in the morning, each has a different function, yes, but the hack is exactly the same, the purpose is exactly the same, why are they different?
And you're one to talk, really.
