DRM still sucks: Yahoo Music going dark, taking keys with it

"No, you were one of the digital pioneers, and in this brave new frontier world, a few people are just going to get malaria. Fact of life. And someone will step in a bear trap, and then it's time for the bite rag, the alcohol, and the saw. Just the price of progress. And yes, some poor group will get trapped in snowfall when crossing the pass, and cannibalism may or may not be involved by the time they stumble barefoot from the mountains next spring. No one can prevent such tragedies.

Well, except for everyone who saw this coming. "

I liked this bit better than the paragraph Slashdot quotes. But then I'm an "I told ya so." kinda guy. And Yahoo is a bait and switch, or bait and kill, sort of company. Which is why I'll never shed a tear over their slow and painful demise.
