The picture above is of a confusing conversation I had with a buddy tonight after canceling Super Bowl plans earlier in the day.

Ubisoft's New Draconian DRM Kills Gaming all Weekend

Previously we’ve written about the new DRM that Ubisoft has developed in-house that requires a 24/7, uninterrupted internet connection (not even for a modem reboot or lost sync) to the master Ubisoft DRM servers.

YouTube Mass-Video Upload Still Buggy

The screenshot above shows a “failed” video upload from Chrome to YouTube that was actually successful blocking 3 other pending uploads. I’ve actually never used the mass/multi-video upload capability of YouTube in the last 2 years and had it work for me seamlessly.
