MacNotables #722: Adam Engst on Google Desktop Security, DRM-Free Music and History (Part 2)

Adam Engst

In the second of a special two-part MacNotables discussion, Adam Engst of TidBITS and Take Control discusses the security of Google Desktop and why you face bigger security issues when buying dinner with your credit card. Chuck and Adam then discuss the digital rights management-free music from EMI on iTunes and the implications for the future of online music purchases, why video and audio may justify different online distribution models and the way that different generations view video ownership and consumption. At the close of the show, Adam earns his new title as the MacNotables’ historian with a story about, “the Google of the 1800’s.”
