This HP salesman is actually doing a good job selling a device with software well integrated to a touch screen.
And Gary follows up asking "do you foresee the touchscreen replacing the keyboard?" and he's kind of smug about how no one is going to re-write their software to interact with a touchscreen.
(I type, with an onscreen keyboard.)
And now the HP sales guy is going off on voice controlled computers, and everyone else just kind of side eyes him.
I'm really enjoying #computerchronicles
@bhtooefr It was Toastytech where I originally read about the DRM. Glad to know that didn't doom the software to obscurity.
@ajroach42 DRM tends to work on business and educational software, too, so cracking it for preservation is of the highest priority.
AFAIK @firstname.lastname@example.org's Apple II cracking project started as a way to preserve games that had only been preserved in a tampered state (crack screens, missing content to fit into space constraints, and even sometimes partial cracks), but quickly focused on cracking stuff that had never been preserved.
