PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Two weeks ago, as I was busy finding out in Vegas that double-shot frozen cocktails are a really stupid idea, a small Finnish startup unveiled their mobile operating system: Jolla unveiled Sailfish. With a strong focus on the Chinese market, the company is aiming to offer serious competition to Android's dominance of the smartphone market.

I really despise DRM but if the phone can't for ex. play youtube videos then a lot of people would probably chose another phone.


YouTube does not use DRM.

Really? From what I've read google offers DRM protection for stuff uploaded by their "partners".

Besides, youtube was just an example. There are other popular streaming media services who rely more on DRM.

I think it's good that Jolla doesn't promote any DRM. Whatever third party will want to bring that trash in - let them bother.
