Yeah, looks like Gizmodo is reporting that we’ve gotten our evil back. Whew, just in time! Implies that Origami is just a glorified media player with nasty DRM.
Unfortunately, the truth isn’t so fun. Origami devices (there are more than one) run the same Windows Tablet PC Edition that my full scale Tablet PC is running. So, the DRM story is no different on Origami than it is on any Windows laptop or Tablet PC. If your MP3s play on a Windows XP device, they’ll play just fine on an Origami device.
Damn, I was so looking forward to running with the Microsoft is evil theme some more. I was getting tired of our competitors having all the evil fun.
