John Dvorak (Passably one of the greatest opinion writers out there) has a entry on yet another DRM program (yet another root kit, that damages the users computers) that the RIAA is using to hurt their customers. At this point, I am save since my music is all done on my eMac, but it is only a matter of time before they port it to Macs and Linux. It seams to be only safe to get my music from the iTMS (or other only music stores)
I have read on other blogs, that some companies are thinking of banning the use of audio CD’s on company computers, and from what I read about the sony and bmi CD issues, I think it might be a good idea, not just for companies, but for every one, no one should put a new CD in their computers, unless they want a computer that does not work, and needs to be rebuilt.

    why not buy music where I buy it – at a second-hand store. CDs are typically $5-7 and that’s exactly how much they should be selling for. They’re typically good quality and barely any are scratched.

  2. ya, but if some one got a sony CD with the root kit and sold it to the second hand place, then you will still get the root kit from the sony CD when you put it in your computer. That is the problem not the quality of the CD but the hidin software on the “audio” CD.

    well, that’s only on the new CDs, so it’ll take a while for it to go there. Besides, I listen to my CDs on a stereo system and it can try to hack that all it can. Anyone ever think of that? Listening to CDs on something other than a computer? I really wish that someone would sell a digital sound recorder that can record music played via stereo/computer and made into “clean” mp3s. Oh wait, that’s been around for years. Same use as tape recorder. Problem solved. Next. =]
