Digital Rights Management and the Audi A7

Rating: 1 votes, 5.00 average.
Well last week, I go out and get a very nice Audi A7. A vision in silver, as sleek as a blue fin tuna, and as musical as a dead carp. I attempted to load a few CDs into the internal Hard Drive. I was shocked, SHOCKED to learn that the Audi so called "Jukebox", will not load standard Audio CDs because of "legal reasons". I guess some green eye-shade lawyer in Neckarslum had decided that I have no rights under the fair use doctrine. So if I want to check out a few new CDs on the road, I am reduced to loading a shoe box up with my CDs for the drive. Too bod I got rid of my 8-Track storage box when I sold my 1970 Ford Falcon. Oh, and the SD Card drive only recognizes MP3s. Neil Young will not like this development. So I have to hook up my iPod or convert audio files to MP3 to load on the SD card or listen to a CD (single disk drive) or listen to the radio.

Welcome to the 21 Century. It sucks.

    Indeed. The 250 GB iPod is a subject of great lament over on the various Mac/Apple sites. Maybe some day.

    Maybe now that there is a 128gb iPad, an iPod is not far off.
