Great! This also happens to be where I get my fix of DRM-free music already!

So I just got an invite to the streaming TV service "Magine". Apple computers and devices are as expected supported out of the box. As for the rest, the platform is a real mess imho:

* Facebook or Twitter required to register. Stupid. No added value to me at all.

* For Windows machines, they recommend Firefox (Free software) for best performance. However, the platform relies on Flash (non-Free) and a for me new and unknown DRM system called "Widevine Media Optimizer" (non-Free) by Widevine, which is a company owned by Google. As expected, the proprietary Widevine Media Optimizer is not available for Linux. This DRM is essentially just as bad and evil as Microsoft's Silverlight from my perspective.

* Although not currently supported, they are working on a solution for Android. While it seems weird to me that Android support is not there from the start given the market penetration and the fact that the DRM solution comes from Google, it is likewise depressing to see such a clear example of Google moving away from cross platform/open web solutions (i.e. not supporting Linux desktops) while providing support only for their own Linux distribution, Android.

So what I see here is yet another proprietary OS restricted DRM platform built around Flash that wants access to my social graph to be able to watch TV.

Fuck that.

So, anyone looking to hurt the US can just see to it that something "happens" to Snowden now? Why would countries like Ecuador, Venezuela or Russia actually bother to help him now?
Snowden has shared encoded copies of all the documents he took so that they won’t disappear if he does, Glenn Greenwald tells Eli Lake.
