This quick post by Cory Doctorow over at BoingBoing helps tell the story of why DRM in consumer devices just plain sucks for consumers. Toshiba’s got a great idea, which they implemented horribly. Again, Apple seems to be the hands down leader in the consumer electronics market, with others just trying to catch up, and failing miserably in the execution.
If you’re reading this site via RSS, I apologize for the multiple postings of my “daily links”. I saw the bug earlier this week and through it’d fix itself, but it hasn’t.
I just made a few changes to the site code to try and shut down the errant postings… The problem is I’m not 100% sure where the postings are coming from, so hopefully, I’ve squashed the bug. If not, I’ll try something different tomorrow.
