YOU'LL NEVER BUY A SONG AGAIN: Not if Microsoft has its way - it's just launched a new version of its Digital Rights Management gubbins for the unpleasant Windows Media format which will make it possible for "content owners" to ensure you can only hire songs and movies for a brief period, with them becoming unplayable after the hire period is up. This really is a music company's dream: in the past, they had to invent a whole new format to make us buy our record collections all over again; now, our collections can be made to evaporate every Thursday.
