Did you know that, according to the BBC technology program, Click (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/click_online/6387009.stm) "...if you buy music that is locked with digital rights management...those files will...reduce the battery life [of your MP3 player], as the player has to use more power to unlock each file."?

I guess it is obvious, I just never thought about it before. Just one more reason not to go anywhere near DRM.

Oh, and how cool are these batteries?http://www.usbcell.com/

It's just a matter of time before DRM disappears, along with Windows. OGG FTW!
