I need a job that pays for dumb decisions too

Look, I hate to sound like a broken record here, but Microsoft still doesn't get that DRM is dead, especially now that iTunes and Amazon have done away with the nuisance. But here's Microsoft, touting that they understand their customers and will re-evaluate the situation if things don't pan out. More money per song plus DRM equals no chance in hell they'll steal any customers away from the big players in the market. My favourite part of the interview:

Q.: If I buy these songs on your service - and they're locked to my phone - what happens when I upgrade my phone in six months' time?
Microsoft: Well, I think you know the answer to that.

[Translation: You're hosed]
