Comment Goodbye DRM!?!?!?! (Score 1) 154

Methinks this could be very useful in defeating many types of DRM. I'm thinking in particular DRM implementations similar to CSS, AACS, BD+, etc. Could this spell the end of DRM for once and for all? One can hope! Any experts care to elaborate (I'm no software developer nor a CPU engineer)?

Comment Consumer financial sense??? (Score 1) 153

So instead of paying $1,165 for something you can touch and have access to whenever you want (and possibly resell) Oxford thinks consumers would rather pay $8,850 ($295/year * 30 years (rough average time between releases)) and get something that they cannot access whenever they want (servers go down, power outages, etc.) instead? Someone help me out here...I can't see the rational here. Maybe Oxford will make it available for download on iTunes :)
