@normandc And you're right, DRM free doesn't provide any direct practical advantage but I'm annoyed by all the people here linking to the Spotify website that forces us to use DRM and provide them with an alternative.

When we watch TV, our TVs watch us back and track our habits. This practice has exploded recently since it hasn’t faced much public scrutiny. But in the last few days, not one but *three* papers have dropped that uncover the extent of tracking on TVs. Let me tell you about them.
