Avatar DRM issues

Apparently, the DVD and Blu-Ray versions of Avatar are having some widespread DRM issues.  I’ve been telling friends and my family to wait for the inevitable double-dip edition anyway, since this one is just a barebones disc with no making-of featurettes or anything special, but it looks like we now have one more reason to do so.

If you missed it, you can read our review of Avatar here (the review was written based on the 3D theater version).

Today’s link of the week is rather personal for me.  Although I work for a different company, I work in same building that Sodexo’s corporate headquarters are, located in Gaithersburg, Maryland.  Yesterday, there was an SEIU protest outside the building…and guess who got arrested?  Danny freakin’ Glover.   Naturally, it occurred on my day off -_-;;

This is the start of a new feature here on Living With a Nerd.  Every Saturday, we are going to offer up a link of the week.  For this first Link of the Week, we offer up to you one of the best articles written in quite a long time about the music industry and how important it is that it changes with the times.  It’s a bit long, but take the time to read the whole thing; very worth it.  You can check it out on Gizmodo here.
