Links for 1.12.08: Watermarks rising, Aiken not, “decidedly uncool,” the RIAA’s chances…
by Josh Kimball
*Though DRM is dying, are watermarks ready to rise?
*Kotaku finds someone who’s modded real drums to work with Rock Band.
*Mashable says maybe EMI won’t really kill the RIAA.
*Off topic: From Friday’s New York Times, the best quote I’ve ever seen make the front page of said paper. On the occasion of riot-control gas being released on soldiers and civilians in Iraq:
“An armored vehicle on the ground also released the gas, temporarily blinding drivers, passers-by and at least 10 American soldiers operating the checkpoint.
‘This was decidedly uncool and very, very dangerous,’ Capt. Kincy Clark of the Army, the senior officer at the scene, wrote later that day.”
