A Nail in DRM’s Coffin 

As part of today’s Macworld, Apple announced that DRM is leaving the Apple Store:

Beginning today, all four major music labels—Universal Music Group, Sony BMG, Warner Music Group and EMI, along with thousands of independent labels, are now offering their music in iTunes Plus, Apple’s DRM-free format with higher-quality 256 kbps AAC encoding for audio quality virtually indistinguishable from the original recordings.

This kills the one reason I liked Amazon’s MP3 store. Hopefully DRM will soon just be a bad memory.
