  1. I clicked over to look at the article at ‘make’, but it turns out they have selectable output control too. You pay $35 or you see only a blurred image of the text. They can kiss my ass. They’re now on my shit list … in fact I think I’ll block their domain locally to ensure I don’t accidentally give them another page hit.

  2. This article is about DRM. Should some moddafikka with
    the right DRM’s put them onto the Net – then we are back where
    we started, in deeds but the waves of time composing more than
    this will have been ululating. The question is:
    can any DRM system avoid being piss poured into the internet

  3. Who knows what good it could do, but I wrote a brief message to the FCC (despite being an Australian) on the issue imploring them to reject the proposal. Needless to say, whatever the US chooses, Australia always ends up following.

    As for your statement, Maupassant, that’s not selectable output control, which has the potential to ruin your enjoyment of a product you purchase; that’s just being plain cheap — you could perhaps be grateful they provided a freebie at all.

    And try clicking on the text. It zooms in clearer than a magazine, you know.
