Philadelphia isn't known as a tech mecca. Sure, the WiFi project gets the headlines, but other than that tech news from Philly is kinda slim pickings.
I'm pleased to say that the Philadelphia Orchestra, of all organizations, is making something of a splash on tech sites. They just announced a music store through which they will be selling recordings of their concerts. This isn't what's getting the headlines though, it is what the music store doesn't offer that is getting the geeks interested.
What's that, you ask? Why, DRM. That's right, the store offers downloads of the orchestra's concerts in either MP3 or FLAC format with no DRM. Do what you will with these files, the orchestra cares not.
Best of all, for a limited time, you can download Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67 for free, though only in the MP3 format.
If you'll excuse me, I have some free MP3's to listen to.
