Piracy! Thatís right thatís why they switched from just telling you to set your device to airplane mode, but now to turn off the device. The sales of airplane control software has been so devastated by pirates stealing these applications that they had to go with sub standard airplane control software. So you better turn your device all the way off or you will crash and you will only have yourself and the dirty pirates to blame.
Teachers were all worried that they were going to be replaced by computers. I had one teacher who refused to accept any reports unless they were done by typewriter.
I had a dot matrix NLQ printer.
I told my dad about this and he said: "Damn educators. They have less IQ than a turnip. Go ahead send your report in using the printer."
Where are all the pro-copyright trolls?
Hey, I don't blame you for remaining silent. It's a bit hard to defend overreaching MPAA thugs when their bosses are paid so excessively. Where these execs are running around like idiots yelling that they are being robbed.
Take a second look at the main article. You point to the problem yourself "No Flash, iDevices, Silverlight" the problem with adding DRM to HTML5 is that it starts out as a separate component that will likely not be implemented on all platforms.
As a web designer you should know full well what a pain in the ass it is to code for different clients (browsers) that implement things differently, or in some instances do not even offer support for what you as a web designer want to do.
So if you have an insane boss that insists that you code for all possible clients (even for the 80 year old guy using win95) you end up with a web page that looks like an early 90's homepage with flaming skulls as your banners.
Adding DRM to HTML5 should be resisted on this basis alone.
