You know I love you guys (even though I STILL haven't received my BOL t-shirt) but I hate to say it... I'm in DRM overload with the BOL podcast. The 1/23/06 episode spent 20.5 out of 32.5 minutes on it.
I know it's probably important, even though I have a feeling market pressure will eventually correct all these things, but... it's like... being concerned about the rainforest. I CARE and do what I can (like eat Ben and Jerry's ice cream) but I just get tired of hearing that a trillion acres a minute go up in smoke. Kinda there with the DRM thing, now.
Maybe it's just 'cuz Molly wasn't there today. No offense V and T but nobody can b*tch about DRM quite like Molly (please interpret this as the twisted compliment that it is, M).
Sorry. 13 hour work day. That prolly has more to do with it. Just wanted to come home to a glass of Port and some dark chocolate, listen to BOL and unwind. But there was DRM... again... and again... Sad

Obsessed with Molly's cell phone decision. Motorola Q is a chump phone. Kevin Rose and Bill Gates have Treo.

Pope and DRM. If someone wants to pervert the message why would they lsiten to the Pope anyway. DRM coders are like ambulance-chasing lawyers.

Jimmy - Spokane
New GPL license. Movie studios use Linux to do rendering and then add DRM. Doesn't make sense.

Father in Law got an iPod. How do I get music on it? Perplexed. I thought you could get free music? Someone in 60s believes musical content should be free to use on iPod. Thinks the same as 15-year-old.

Microsoft solved spam problem. If you subscribe to Hotmail and white list and black list but get no spam.

Are you freaking kidding me? Why don't they do it for satelitte boxes too? And Xboxes? I only have so many inputs on my TV. What's the point of even having composite connections if they're going to show crappy video. Is there no end to industry-wide hysteria concerning how people want to use their purchased and legal content? Maybe they'll try to outlaw inviting your friends over to watch a movie, listen to music, or play video games with your friends. The industry is so out of control, sooner or later some company will put one of these ideas into practice and I will boycott them so fast (and hopefully many others), they won't even know what happened to their revenue.
Can ONE COMPANY just get a clue already?

The following link will show you a pretty interesting video. It shows the apple intel commercial side by side with some clips taken out of the "Such Great Heights" music video by The Postal Service. Both are original and un-edited material. Pretty interesting, just thought I would point it out to you guys.
Here is the link:

Great show that I listen to on my way to/from work! Much better than the radio.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
