+ - Irony: China rejects Vista as too risky

Submitted by surfingmarmot
surfingmarmot (858550) writes "China has rejected Vista as too risky for the some 12,000 Lenovo systems to be used at the Olympic Games. Lenovo is loading the PCs with XP instead. Wireless will still be turned off to further reduce risk. I wonder why they aren't using Red Flag Linux which is an option on the Lenovo systems."

+ - HBO Exec: don't call it DRM, call it DCE!

Submitted by surfingmarmot
surfingmarmot (858550) writes "They figured out their problem with DRM acceptance — it's the name. They want call it Digital Consumer Enablement. Yeah, that's right. DRM _helps_ consumers. But we stupid consumers cannot figure that out because of that nefarious name. I am so glad they are going to clear up that misunderstanding with a name change. The old "Call a thorn a rose and not only will it smell sweet but we won't notice being pricked" ploy eh? Clever. Le DRM est mort, vive le DCE!
