If you come to think of it (59)

Smartphones, tablet “pcs”, various handhelds/mobile devices (and so on) appear more and more to be the introduction of some smarter/subtler form of DRM. Because of their smaller storage spaces, users are much more likely tempted to purchase all kinds of contents, than just access it from a small/non-existent disk for free. How convenient, that such devices usually come bundled with some form of shop, run by the platform vendor. People who have access to vast amounts of local data and can simply reuse files from an archive, can operate more independent. Yay cloud-computing!

PS: Has someone already calculated, how much cheaper it is, to buy hard disks, than to continually pay various subscription fees?
