Portfolio is reporting that Apple and HBO are close to a deal to bring HBO shows to iTunes. The big news? Supposedly, HBO will be allowed to do variable pricing, which Apple has refused to do in the past. Give me The Wire!
So, what do you think? Interesting to strip away all the color, right? Let me know in the comments.
Shame on Microsoft. Their "PlaysForSure" DRM scheme, which they pushed for years as a good solution for consumers, will be turned off on August 31. That means that songs you bought will still work, but if you change computers, or hardware, you'll be out of luck. This, my friends, is why DRM sucks.
