Celine Dion can make your computer cringe, too. (Standup comics take note, this tidbit has the inspiration for a real zinger!)

Are there really enough people who would *want* to pirate a Celine Dion cd to justify copy-protecting it?

I think that this completely expresses my feelings towards the CD, its copy protection, and said person's music.

She looks like Hedwig in that picture. But then again, I always had her figured for a drag queen anyway.

OK, is it just me or does it seem like a really bad idea for the music industry to be alienating computer users? We have our own server at home and it stores our iTunes music library, accessible throughout the house via AirPort. Now our stereo is used mainly for the speakers. We don't want to lose the functionality of an app like iTunes, but that is clearly the direction some music companies are taking.

Thankfully, Phillips is standing up to the pressure. They'll continue to produce their read/write CD players. And they're not allowing the new copy-protected discs to be called CDs, a designation for which they own the copyright. Go, Phillips!

Yay for Philips. My next monitor and CD player will both be Philips. I support companies who take stands that I like and refuse to fold.

Gutenberg - Isn't it normal for those who are less intelligent to consider those who are more intelligent to be dangerous? The old codgers who run the music industry don't understand how they can turn computers to their benefits... they don't 'get' computers, so they try to prosecute them out of existence. This happened with the advent of radio, as well...
