This is Slashdot - everything Apple is evil...

Wait, I thought it was "everything Microsoft is evil", or have I picked that up wrong?

Actually it seems to be "everything not-LINUX is evil". I was going to say "everything that the non-Technical consumer likes is evil", but I'm not sure that fits in the Microsoft case. Maybe "only the perceived underdog is not evil"?

Couldn't you fix the "rental" model so that the video is available for X number of days past download. DirecTV OnDemand does this now (with the DVR). I can re-watch the movie for (I think) 5 days after "purchase". The old DIVX had self-destruct of the contents back in the 90's didn't it? (or was that the 80's) And let's face it, nothing is going to stop the pirates anyway.

There are three kinds of people: men, women, and unix.
