Digitally Retarded Media

I do mean "retarded" in the actual sense of the word- slowed, hindered and restricted. Because that's what DRM does. It uses digital technologies to make media retarded.

Microsoft has promised that they'll "explore" some sort of content filtering to keep pirated content off the Zune. Never mind that this would be doomed to failure in even the most competent hands, Vista media center can't even decide which shows you're "allowed" to record or not.

Man, isn't that a kick in the pants. Which shows you're allowed to record. Remember when you could put a tape in your VCR and record any show you wanted? Isn't it a little weird when the more than 30 year old technology is more useful and feature-rich than the new technology?

Digitally Retarded Media sucks.
