Mike Rundle has an interesting post about the Huffington Post – seems Hilary Rosen is quite the hypocrite. Previously championing DRM, she is now complaining about her iPod:
The problem is that the iPod only works with either songs that you buy from the on-line Apple iTunes store or songs that you rip from your own CD’s.
Not only is she wrong – she’s ranting on about how Steve Jobs is “monopolizing” through proprietary technology.
But keeping the iTunes system a proprietary technology to prevent anyone from using multiple (read Microsoft) music systems is the most anti-consumer and user unfriendly thing any god can do.
Come on Ms. Rosen. Please go back and review how the RIAA helped create this situation.
Oh, removing comments from the Huffington Post is a great way to show that you “get” blogging, Arianna. Nice try.
