NBC continues to slap itself with the ballpeen hammer: their new deal with Amazon tells us what kind of DRM the industry would like to see:
Compare Unbox: Shows bought from Unbox can be kept on two computers max and can be stored on up to two different (approved) media players. Users cannot "mix" accounts, meaning that a PC cannot have authorized content purchased from two different accounts accessible at the same time. As you can see, Unbox is more restrictive.
Yeah, if my daughter downloads something, gosh forbid that we should be able to watch part of it in the living room, and the rest of it on the big screen in the family room. That ust makes us filthy pirates. I've been down on Amazon's Unbox ever since "Buzz Out Loud" tested it, and found it to be both lacking and obnoxious.
Oh, it's even dumber than I thought - Unbox is still Windows specific.
