Google Goes Paid and Drops DRM

It's interesting to see how a company can both do a step forward and backwards at the same time. Google did that. The step forward is that you can now actually pay for extra storage on Gmail and Picasa.

The step back is that Google Video is dropping its video store. Which, according to that post means that "the end of DRM is closer". If that were true, would definitely be a step back.
