Double the price, undouble the DRM

Yahoo Music is taking a page from eMusic's book and losing the DRM. The only catch(es):

  1. There's only one song available
  2. The song costs US$1.99
  3. It's a Jessica Simpson song.
But, you do get to play that song anywhere and copy it as many times as you like. Of course, the record label is banking on the fact that you won't pass it around to all of your buddies because the tune, "A Public Affair," is customized with your name. When you buy it, you choose your name from a list, and apparently Jessica croons that name at some point during the tune.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
