Plays for Sure Fails for Sure

Ed Foster’s Gripelog posts Plays For Sure, Unless It Doesn’t. “A big headache for customers in the era of convergence is that it’s very hard…”

I’ve been looking at the iRiver products, and will still consider them, as I’m interested in unrestricted audiocasts, my own ripped music and OGG file capability. The Microsoft “Plays for Sure” appears to be yet another empty promise, and it’s no surprise. Digital Restriction Management restricts everyone from using their purchased music as they’d like, with the flimsy hope that it will deter piracy. Would you buy a book that could only be read under a “Reads for Sure” lightbulb?
