Nokia Signs On To Use Microsoft DRM

You know what, I’m glad you got an iPhone. Although it’s been over-hyped and talked about for months, at least it doesn’t use Microsoft’s shitty PlayReady DRM. Nokia made the stupid move of signing on with Microsoft to use the DRM on its phones using the S40 and S60 interfaces.

Nokia phones tend to be pretty feature-rich, especially in the media department. Introduce DRM and your phones go to crap. This move is bound to hurt Nokia in the end, just wait and see. Why restrict what a user can do on a frickin’ cellphone when you can just let consumers be free. Oh well, maybe Motorola will come out of its slump now.
