    I downloaded an episode of House on iTunes and I can't play it on my external monitor because iTunes says "A display is connected that is not authorized to play copyrighted content."

    :ugh::ugh::ugh:

    My goddamn MONITOR isn't authorized to play the content but my Macbook screen is? Fuck it, I'm going back to doing this illegally.
