While you were relishing the fact that for the first time in your life you have a retort to “eat your spinach,” here’s what we were looking at:
- Playing For One Night Only: The Fall Television Season – Many are called, few are chosen.
- My Problem With iTunes 7 – Is different than other people’s problems with iTunes 7. Lotsa people having lotsa problems. As it turns out, perhaps the only person not having problems with it is Tim.
- Microsoft Insider Clarifies Zune’s Sharing Limitations – or “Whoops. Remember that Thing I Blogged? About Zune Wrapping Everything Up In DRM? Well, Not So Much.” Considering the firestorm surrounding Zune & DRM, you wonder how long it’s going to be before Microsoft disappears the poor guy.
- The DRM Virus Is Spreading – A Pandemic May Be Near – Home taping didn’t kill music. Used CDs didn’t kill music. Downloading didn’t kill music.
Ironically, under the guise of “protection,” DRM has a better chance of killing music than all of these things combined.
- Will Success Spoil YouTube? – A slightly paranoid question, to be sure. But I’ll still bet that, by the end of 2007, YouTube will feel totally different than it does right now.
- That’s What I Like: The Office – Kassia hits the nail on the head when she calls it “one of the smartest, funniest, most painful shows on television.” I continue to think that it’s the best cover of an undisputed classic since Hüsker Dü’s “Eight Miles High.”
