More DRM madness

Over the last few days, BoingBoing has been highlighting some particularly loathsome examples of DRM craziness. HP seems to be responsible for two of the most ridiculous examples:

HP inkjet chips die after a pre-determined time, even if they’re full of ink and perfectly operational.

HP laptops have a hard-wired list of hardware that you can use with them. If your add-on’s name isn’t down, it’s not getting in.
