Apple Just when you thought that DRM was on its way out, with various music stores abolishing the practice, some company will implement DRM in yet another way that will affect lots of customers in a very negative way. The most recent case of idiotic DRM comes courtesy of a gadget maker from Cupertino. Update: MacWorld provides nuance to the story, with comments from Apple and third-party manufacturers.

I have a pair of very expensive headphones, because sound quality is important to me. I also have a "gaming chair" that can plug into the headphone jack of the ipod to have the music play out of the speakers in and around the chair.

If this becomes industry standard, I will hold on to my old ipod for many years to come.
