  1. “Intelligence in your coffee machine,” Allen said. I would have to categorically disagree with any statement equating DRM with intelligence.

  2. Jim McKeeth says:

    Intelligence for DRM is still Intelligence, just used poorly.

  3. I dunno. Seems to me it’s the opposite: it’s taking a question that really does need to be thought about by an intelligent being and putting it in the hands of an unthinking automaton–a substitute for intelligence, if you will.

  4. Russell Peters says:

    The first thing that needs to be defined is ‘intelligence’! Machines have been handling that at increasing ‘levels’ for centuries, any time a decision is made between options it can be defined as intelligent choice.

  5. daniael says:

    not poorly, it’s used with premeditation, to protect, not the intellectuals, but their “property” owners…
    nice place
