Interesting news from Apple and EMI on DRM. Article from Gizmodo
The interesting part is how EMI believes this will get them a larger slice of the music sold via online purchases. Hopefully, more companies move in this direction, DRM isn’t preventing piracy, so lets end the charade and make things work across platforms.
Albums will cost the same with the higher audio quality and individual tracks will cost more as DRM-less. Unfortunately, I just bought LCD Soundsystem’s new album on iTunes before this deal. Should have waited to get the higher audio quality.
Speaking of music…here is what I have been listening to of recent.
Modest Mouse’s new album – “We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank” – really like it
LCD Soundsystem – “Sound of Silver” – this has become my main workout music.
Neil Young – “On the Beach” – great classic album
Peter Bjorn and John – “Writer’s Block”
Arcade Fire – “Neon Bible” – its ok, but not nearly as good as “Funeral”…but then again what is?
