While you were busy winning back both Houses of Congress, here’s what we were looking at:
- What Is Piracy? Part One – One wonders that if you believe the broadest definition of piracy applies — say, giving a mix CD to someone makes you a pirate — then why bother worrying about being a pirate? In other words, if you are already an outlaw, then you might as well be an outlaw.
- Microsoft Goes The Last Few Feet – Microsoft does a smart thing, and offers TV Show and film downloads via their Xbox Live service. Yay Microsoft!!
- How Do I Remove DRM from WMV files? – This, of course, is a purely hypothetical question. We know that the DRM is there for a good reason: media companies don’t trust their customers. So therefore, we would never ever never advocate that you circumvent DRM in order to enjoy your paid-for content in any way you wish.
- The Final Reason I Won’t Buy A Zune: The Sin Tax – Microsoft does a dumb thing, and offers Universal Music a fee for every Zune sold. Boo Microsoft!!
That’s What I Like: Sexy Time. (Actually, Borat) – In a break from this week’s theme of piracy and Microsoft, our newest ‘Loper, Tim Gaskill, takes a look at the genius of Sacha Baron Cohen’s creation, and finds him very nice.
