I've been so damn busy I haven't posted in months, but Cory's transcript of his plea for MSFT to end-run DRM is more than enough to wake me from my blogging slumber.
No Sony customer woke up one morning and said, "Damn, I wish Sony would devote some expensive engineering effort in order that I may do less with my music." Presented with an alternative, Sony's customers enthusiastically jumped ship. None of [Microsoft's] customers want you to make expensive modifications to your products that make backing up and restoring even harder.
Can't say they haven't been warned. It'll be a shame when they ignore his advice.
