Fairplay, DRM, Steve Jobs, and Rectal Extraction

Steve Jobs liberated from his rectum some amazing pontification, saying….

The third alternative is to abolish DRMs entirely internet explorer 11 kostenlos downloaden für windows 7. Imagine a world where every online store sells DRM-free music encoded in open licensable formats. In such a world, any player can play music purchased from any store, and any store can sell music which is playable on all players bedienungsanleitung für samsung s8 herunterladen. This is clearly the best alternative for consumers, and Apple would embrace it in a heartbeat. If the big four music companies would license Apple their music without the requirement that it be protected with a DRM, we would switch to selling only DRM-free music on our iTunes store netflix serien downloaden kostenlos. Every iPod ever made will play this DRM-free music.

He rambles on about how DRM is all about secrets, and sharing those secrets exposes the DRM to risk ipad foto herunterladen. And how Microsoft has started a Closed DRM system so that must be the best way to do DRM.

The truth of it, is that Microsoft still offers a cheap DRM system, and the fees you pay to use the DRM are mostly to VeriSign, not to Microsoft herunterladen.

DRM is needed, and it needs to be able to be had by the little guy. If you for example create a “How to be the world’s greatest outside sales rep for a video compression company” video you don’t have enough volume to be picked up by iTunes or Zune for distribution, and the 100 or so people who would have use for it are all going to know each other and be willing to give the file to the guys they work with if there is no protection on the stream herunterladen.

The argument that DRM is not secure is a stupid argument. I’m quite certain that I could drive my brand new 4-door Jeep Wrangler (review coming soon) through most people’s wall circumventing their door lock, and allowing me to steal their 32 inch TV kostenlose volksmusiken. But for the most part it is easier for me to go buy my own TV so I don’t have to steal.

iTunes is right their model sucks. I don’t really know how they stay in business Purchased steam games download again. If you are buying legal music through iTunes are getting raped. The music is only marginally cheaper than CD, doesn’t sound good, and it won’t last near as long as a CD Music download on pc.

Zune, Urge, Yahoo Music, and other subscription models however are a great deal. For less than the price of Sirius or XM I get Music where ever I am in a larger quantity than I would ever be able to listen to, and I get the ability to try out bands and artists I would never have had a chance to listen to other wise java 32 bit kostenlos deutsch.

I don’t really buy in to the whole song sharing thing on Zune. It is kind of silly if you ask me since if I wanted to share a song with some one I’d either let them “Jack in” or point my ear spray in their direction, or since if they have a Zune there is a 90% chance they have a subscription I could just give them the info and they could download it them selves.

DRM had a slow point there for a bit. There was not the push for User Generated Content (UGC) that there was for a while. And the push that there was about being a star not paying the rent. But this is Web 2.0 and this time it is all about the Benjamin’s, and if you can’t put some Jingle in your pocket you better stick to making sex videos, ala Britney and Paris. Because at least then you might get asked to be in a real porn shoot, everything else is just going to get you labled PsychoGirl.WMV or StarwarsKid.avi
