This game is massively multiplayer Scrabble on an infinite board. It plays in the browser smoothly, and I'm finding it utterly compelling.

"as many as 88 percent of people do not read the terms and conditions of a Web site before they make a purchase"

Fine, rational article. Naturally the games & media companies will use the same data to argue for the criminalisation of copyright and patent violations, and out politicians will follow the money instead of the public good.

Don't be fooled, anyone. EA's use of DRM still treats the people that pay as the enemy while doing nothing whatever about the people who don't. It's invasive, potentially harmful but most importantly it is the pinnacle of disrespect to say "thanks for the cash but we're going to mess your machine up in a way you can't fix, becuase we think you may be a thief but not one smart enough to actually get round the harm we're doing." EA calls you dishonest and dumb, even after these "concessions".

Very interesting article by a games producer who has dropped DRM, lower prices and presumably embraces the "pirates" as a marketing channel. I wonder how it has affected his business?

"DRM can encourage the best customers to behave slightly better," he says. "It will never address the masses of non-customers downloading your product." -- I disagree. What EA have done to Spore makes paying customers more likely to resort to a downloaded version. | "EA has ... simply changed the copy protection method" -- EA need to wake up and realise their old method was equally unacceptable and reprehensible.

My friend bought a copy of this game. Then his computer failed. He's now used all three of his installs in just a few days, and has a worthless piece of shiny plastic to show for it. What should he do next? The obvious answer is to download the "neutered" version and use that, but what would be his legal standing if he did so? And why is the "illegal" version better value than the "legal" version?

It's hard to believe that any technology business would be this abusive of their paying customers. There is just no excuse, I'm sorry. The product deserves to tank.

This is the virtual world server that Sun Labs developed. It's now available under GPL for people to create games and virtual worlds of any description.

Yes, this is a fast x86 emulator written in Java. This demo lets you run DOS in an applet and then play games in it. Runs just fine for me - another excellent proof of the power of modern Java implementations.
