If you are a big fan of comic books, you are probably familiar with ComiXology. The company allows you to purchase and download digital comic books rather than having to schlep down to the comic book store with the unwashed masses.
EA.com editor-in-chief Jeff Green recently tweeted about his difficulties with his own company’s DRM: “Booted twice — and progress lost — on my single-player C&C4 game because my DSL connection blinked. DRM fail. We need new solutions.”
Ubisoft got a taste of Murphy’s Law as the company’s newly implemented Internet-dependent anti-piracy measure has left owners of the PC version of Assassin’s Creed II unable to log in and thus play their game. It was bound to happen, but I didn’t think it would happen almost right from the get go.
Let the outrage begin. The ninjas of Ubisoft have revealed their latest arsenal against PC pirates: the ancient art practiced by Steam. As with Valve’s popular platform, Ubisoft games will soon require users to authenticate their copy by connecting to their user accounts online.
Sony has introduced the latest in their Digital Media Port line of accessories for their Bravia audio systems, the TDM-NC1.
The $199 device lets you wirelessly stream music (ATRAC, AAC and WMA formats) from your PC to your Bravia home entertainment system (assuming you have one of the models with Sony’s proprietary Digital Media Port.)
Whoops! CompUSA made a bit of a blunder this week when it advertised a free $15 iTunes gift card with the purchase of any Microsoft Zune 30GB Music Player.
Now if you could only figure out a way to get those DRM locked tunes from iTunes to the Zune, you’d be all set.
If you’ve ever wanted to record FM broadcasts to your MP3 player, but didn’t want the commercials or talk in between songs, today is your lucky day.
The new PopCatcher MusicDock MD-601 is a portable MP3 player and a standalone FM-radio dock that can capture FM broadcasts to MP3, commercial-free.
Up until now, its been nearly impossible to (legally) use your purchased iTunes music and videos on anything other than Apple’s own gear. According to a post on Tech.co.uk, this may be about to change soon.
