Umbrellas: Not Cool (but functional)

Holding an umbrella in one hand and a coffee in the other makes you look uncool. If you’re not concerned with looking cool, then that’s fine, and my hat’s off to you. But if you are trying to look cool, and you’ve got an umbrella and a coffee–you’ve failed. Just so you know.

ps – Can someone tell me what DRM is?

pps – has everyone seen the new furry crab that’s been making the news? If not, click on Deep Sea News to the right.

  1. DRM = Digital Rights Management

    Essentially: The evil ogredust sprinkled onto things (usually MP3s) to make sure that only ONE (or maybe as many as three) machines have a working copy of said media.

    In some cases, DRM is used to tell you that you allegedly won’t be able to play/extract music from a CD onto your system in MP3 format.

  2. Note that the “rights” in Digital Rights Management are the rights that it’s taking away, not granting.

    Big business hates that you can tape a TV show or make backup copies of music you buy, or even loan a CD to a friend for them to listen to. If they had their way, they’d charge you every time you listened to a song they owned.

    And that’s where DRM comes in. It’s them trying to tell you what you can and can’t do with your legally purchased content.
