Games Interesting. The Verge summarises the loads of news and rumours coming out of OnLive today - much of the staff seems to have been laid off, and an acquisition could be imminent. Who will it be? Apple? Google? Microsoft? EA? Valve? CommodoreUSA?

Here's an interesting twist. What if they don't have a DRM kill switch/bypass key ready to distribute now? Between engineers who've seen the writing on the wall and the frantic environment caused by the company going under, they may not have any developers left who are familiar with how to disable the DRM. Not sure how realistic a sudden shutdown like this would be though.
