Apple complicit in the DRM nightmare (you already knew about it on the PC platform, of course).

quote:
Will Apptel and Wintel will get there? Eventually. And DRM is what buys them time against the boutique entertainment gear makers who'll be driven out of business by patent driven royalty structures or even worse, refusing to even give those gear makers access to the DRM technology needed to playback all future content in the first place as Apple is doing to companies like Escient and Sonos

(As with the other, fling this wherever it best fits. I just stuck it here because it has the most tech threads.)
