Apple Intros 17" Unibody MBP, DRM-Free iTunes

anotherone Re:No more DRM on music, but... (1079 comments)

Still, it's a step in the right direction, and I applaud the people over at Amazon (and everyone else selling music without DRM) for doing it first. Without that step, I'm willing to bet that Apple would have stayed with DRM on their music catalog.

I'd take that bet. Apple was selling DRM-free music before Amazon even HAD an MP3 store.

Steve Jobs' "Thoughts On Music" manifesto where he basically said "we hate DRM and want to get rid of it" was posted in February 2007. They started actually selling DRM free music under the "iTunes Plus" name in April 2007. Not everything in their library, mostly indy and EMI labels, but it was more DRM-free downloads than anyone at the time.

Amazon MP3 didn't open until September 2007.

Email-only Providers?

anotherone Re:GoDaddy (601 comments)

Stay far, far away from GoDaddy for email hosting. GoDaddy's email hosting is set up to bounce any messages that contain a URI for a page hosted with certain competitors. I am not joking.
