Seeing that a fair few users only bought DAII thinking they could avoid the problems and other discomforts this DRM brings, it will be interesting to see what EA's next step will be.

A team of scientists came up with a new theory that would solve the problem of the elusive dark energy that seems to be accelerating the expansion of the universe. They figure that the universe is not speeding up but we are, in relation to the outer regions of space, slowing down. Tests with the upcoming Large Hadron Collider will give more insight if we're going to end up frozen in time.
