Digital Candy from Strangers

'Free' Costello CD seeds DRM, MS Media Player 9 from The Register USA

This is just sick. What's next for Microsoft, tempting kids with candy with tracking devices in them? Sick puppies 'll try putting coin-activated shutters on everyone's eyes and ears, "just in case... I mean, you could overhear content while walking down the street. And if you don't own the right to listen to that content -- that's stealing."

Shades of freakin' Orwell, come and save us from our zealots.
