Choice Cuts

Microsoft evangelist Robert Scoble blends two raging threads: Dean vs. Kerry and Microsoft vs. Apple. In the latter case, Robert defends Microsofts music player strategy as hardware choice vs. Apples "lock-in" format.

But Scott Mace gets it right: "Apparently, millions of users would rather limit their hardware choices if it means they have more choice when it comes to data and software." It doesnt matter what Microsofts DRM licensing is like today, Robert. If Redmond controls the market, then well find out just what were allowed to do with our Windows Media Players. Keep on rockin in the free world, Apple.
