Aargh, lead away - New comment on The Good Manager, etc, etc, ...

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "The Good Manager, etc, etc, ...":

Not the original poster here, but I assume you wouldn't whine to Ford cos you lost the key to your Escort and couldn't drive it.

Does Ford put ignition locks on their cars for my convenience or theirs? Compare and contrast with DRM.

I guess you don't get it either.

And by "it" I mean that there is all the difference in the world between a crappy experience that's the best anyone can reasonably do (batter life on a laptop) and a crappy experience intentionally injected into the product because of dubious business goals (DRM).

DRM is especially idiotic because it only annoys paying customers. Pirates get a better experience than people who paid for the product!!!

Let me say that again. Pirates get a better experience than people who paid for the product. What kind of leadership thinks that's a good idea?
