Apple iTunes Store goes '100% DRM-free' - allegedly

Rob Sked
Jobs Horns


I found this confusing.

Are they saying that I can get DRM free music if I sign up for I-Tunes Plus only (thus reducing how much I can store on my I-Pod due to bit rate, as I'll be forced to re-download my tracks at a more bloated file size)?

Why can't I just "update" my library to DRM free music?

Oh wait, becuase some cracker will work out how to do it for free and they will loose money . . . . .

Wow, that'll learn me to research before making that sort of comment.

But if it's running Linux too ....

Polish teen derails tram after hacking train network

Rob Sked


Perhaps it just looked like a TV remote, and actually used a wireless signal instead? Send the right signal to change the track.

I'll be struck dumb if they do use IR to change track points.

Office update disables MS files

Rob Sked

Erm, hang on a sec . . .

. . . . If I'm reading this and the KB article correctly, it's saying that if you use Office 2003, and patch it to SP3 . . . . you get locked out of it's own files.


I bloody well hope that when SP3 for XP comes out, you don't re-boot and get told "This OS has been deemed unsafe, and therefore locked. Please install Linux"

I think the bods at Microsoft have been over indulging on the Brandy & Sherry this xmas.

Did anyone notice . . .

. . . . how the blog URL comically got snipped?


Glad to see our ho's are getting treated well!

@Dave Cozens

If you use the "customise homepage" button at the top, you can untick CBeebies.

On another thought, I wonder how the new page is going to cope with companys that have their users locked out with Websense et al.

To answer the"how did he open the door" question

You can get those keys that allow the door to open automatically when your in range. The new Mini Cooper (Built by BMW) has this function if your willing to pay £900 for it (which I didn't)

There, issue solved.

Oh hang on, where did he hang the key?
