I recently picked up the autobiography of President Reagan, An American Life. I've been enjoying that recently, as it's an easy read and insightful of alot of fairly recent American History. I also picked up Umberto Eco's The Island of the Day Before. It should be a fun read, as Eco tends to develop well thought out plots and interesting storylines. Haven't had much time for reading of late, as I'm staying rather busy. But it is a good busy, and I'll catch up on reading somewhere down the line.

Major Recording Label EMI recently announced that it will offer digital rights management (DRM)-free downloads of its entire digital catalog, and added that Apple's iTunes store will be the first to peddle its wares. Though the Beatles' catalog won't be a part of this deal just yet. This is a good move for a major Record Label, because it means that I can purchase music that will be available to play on any platform, without mind bending DRM. Which means that I can get some new music for my RioCar, which doesn't support DRM, as it's linux based and no longer actively supported.
