While you were standing in line waiting to purchase your iPhone, here’s what we’ve been doing for the past couple of weeks:
- DRM for Books: Will Publishers Learn Anything from the Music Industry’s Mistakes? – Actually, when it comes to dragging old media into the age of new media, nobody learns from anyone’s mistakes.
- Harry Potter and The Search For “Harry Potter Spoilers” – Of course, before the month’s out, we will all be spoiled. Forever.
- Make and Craft: A Case Study For Entertainment Companies – And now we understand what’s behind Kassia’s recent interest in Finger Puppet Theater.
- The Scream, or They Do It So We Don’t Have To – Tim digs deep into the wonderfully expressive scream and we all feel better for it. Primal!
- Universal, iTunes, and The Problem with Consumers – Universal is hedging its bets by going month-to-month with iTunes. Is it a smart business move or more evidence that the music industry is clueless when it comes to what consumers want? Yes!
- AllOfMP3: The RIAA Wins the Battle, but Loses the War – Will the RIAA ever get it? I somehow doubt it. They’ve been not getting it for so long that even if they accidentally stumbled across it, they wouldn’t know what to do with it.
- That’s What I Like: Scrabble (or Making the Other Guy Cry for Mercy) – Welcome to Medialoper, Tory! Based on her first outing, I’d say she fits right in.
