DVD Jon is coming to America. The programming prodigy has traded the glaciers and mountains of Norway for the sunny beaches of San Diego, where he'll be working with Michael Robertson, another thorn in the side of media conglomerates. By elle.cayabyab@gmail.com (Elle Cayabyab). [Ars Technica]
That's quite brave on his part, I am sure he will be sued at some point. Can he go to jail? If it is only money he'll be allright, but if he goes to jail...

I had a very high opinion of Chris Pirillo, but I gotta say his appearance in last Saturday's Inside Mac radio was a big disappointment. They talk about gada.be and that's a great service, that I think I will use a lot. But then he said a couple of things that sounded... well, stupid... First, he said that he thought charging more than 5 or 6 dollars for an armband to carry an iPod was, and I quote, "highway robbery". If he thinks he can do it for less, why doesn't he? Second, he said he doesn't have an iPod, but has a PSP. That I thought was odd... But okey, he rather play games than listening to music... But what really made him drop points with me like a stone was when he said that the iTunes Music Store has DRM, but not really, is almost like no DRM (that isn't a direct quote)... WHAT?!? I even think he was talking about videos, which is even worse. iTunes Music comes with DRM attached, but at least it can be removed by burning a CD and ripping it again. Videos can't be saved in a portable format, so you can't make backups that do not relay in a connection with the iTunes Music Store. Hence, you do not own the product, you are just renting for an indefinite amount of time. I hope it was a problem of talking faster than he thinks, but come on, Chris! Correct the last thing!
