Don't Buy Anything with a load of CRAP
« on: March 02, 2006, 09:15 AM »
If you are thinking whether you should be buying one of the cool devices, the articles below will give you some food for thought.

Transcript - A load of C.R.A.P. - At The Whiteboard -
"ZDNet Executive Editor David Berlind suggests that CRAP or Content, Restriction, Annulment, and Protection, is a catchier phrase than DRM - Digital Rights Management. Why does he think this technology is crap? Once you've bought music or other content to play on one device, it won't play on any other device because of the proprietary layer of CRAP"

You can also watch an interesting video on the same subject by clicking the link at the bottom of the above article.
