The Globe and Mail: Moontaxi gets major music labels on board (MoonTaxi is a Canadian based company):
But Mr. Mitchell said that all subscribers will be able to download each track, burn it onto a CD, and put in on to a MP3 player.

To recap the article:

  • Includes the five majors plus some unnamed indies
  • 250,000+ tracks
  • $0.99CDN/track w/some variation
  • Different rights for different tracks

Sounds good, though I won't believe it till Iím listening to one of the tracks on my (unlevied) iPod.

Update: Here is a press release with details on the indies. They include MapleMusic and Nettwerk.

I just installed WMP9 on my music machine (running Win2k) and adding music files to my media library causes my computer to reboot (no BSOD).

Update: Now my computer boots, BSODs (but so quickly that I can't read it), and reboots. Hmmmm...

Anyone have a Siemens S40 data cable?

Alternatively I'll switch my phone to the 'digital one rate' which means I'll have to worry about these trouble areas:

In these areas, which collectively represent less than 1% of the U.S. population, all calls placed and received will incur a charge of $4 (CDN) per minute + applicable taxes (long distance and roaming included).

CNET: Microsoft protecting rights--or Windows? (via Gary)
In fact, the most serious indictment of DRM technology may come from Microsoft employees. A research paper published last fall, reportedly by four Microsoft employees, concluded that DRM technology would likely fail because of consumer resistance to content protection and acceptance of file trading. The researchers concluded "that a vendor will probably make more money by selling unprotected objects than protected objects."

While living in residence, John and I always joked about requiring an executive residence with room service, maid service, laundry service... In Toronto you can get it!

Globe and Mail, It's home suite home for students:

For $699 a month, a university student can walk into a hotel suite with a private bedroom, a kitchenette with toaster, fridge and microwave, and a 69-centimetre (27-inch) television in the living area.
But $699 is a little steep. We were once living in a two bedroom apartment in the same neighborhood as this hotel for $1400 and the square footage greatly exceeded the hotel room (we had a dining room, kitchen, living room, balconey, two bedrooms,...). Of course no 'services'.
