As long as I get out of it what I want ...
I really like my iPhone. ANd Swingman doesn't mind that I buy his music on
iTunes. His Request Vol II saved my sanity as I was held captive by the
PATH system this evening ...
I like my iPod, although I don't use it as much as I used to with my
blackberry playing most of the music on it, so I only need one device,
plus the BB streams audio nicely.
I gifted my youngest with an iTouch for Christmas and was moderately
impressed with it, but it is not something I have a need for.
The majority of the songs I've purchased on iTunes are now DRM free. I
understand the driving forces behind proprietary devices, and
particularly the need to enforce intellectual property rights, but would
not buy a device that I did not have the ability to use "user created"
I do think that DRM is, and will continue to be, the single biggest
hindrance to technological advance on the Internet ... it's why I think
all this optimism among the unwashed masses with regard to HTML5 is
premature. In short, content owners/providers will continue to throw
every wrench they can into the works until the vestiges of all the old,
pre digital, business models are a thing of the past. This is
particularly true of video content, which would probably be the most
appealing aspect of HTML5, IMO.
Glad you enjoy the album ... it should have been DRM free, right?
