Please be courteous and drop a note here if you used it so people don't keep trying.

Interesting. I saw the buttons for Facebook and Twitter but all I did was give it my email. I wonder if I already linked Facebook to Bundle Stars or something. Probably.
Probably. I think you can check to see if your Facebook account has Bundle Stars connected?

Yep, it is. I guess I forgot I linked them.
There, we go. Thanks.

FYI, this also requires you to login through facebook.

What? I didn't have to do that. I put in my email address and boom, key. I already have a Bundle Stars account though....maybe that is why.
It asked me to log into Facebook.

The problem is that no one has figured out how to break DRM since it ever came out. Also, what happens when you get a new computer? No way to get the DRM from Unbox. I got two/2 duplicate Unbox announcement e-mails.

Maybe they sent you my announcement. I find it hard to believe the Unbox DRM hasn't been broken since every other DRM out there has been broken.
Ha! Really? Did foxdigitalcopy.com's DRM get removed yet? I have a X-Men: First Class (2011) digital copy that I would like to test to play on anything like in Linux.

I think you need to update in order to get the version that basically allows you to bypass the DRM in it. That's what the article seems to imply anyway:

Update the Amazon Unbox application to the latest version. This version includes a one-time license conversion that will make your videos available within Windows Media Player. Open the Unbox application and there will be an "Upgrade" notification you can use to do this. You can also click the "Settings" option in the Unbox menu and select "Check for Amazon Unbox Upgrades."

I agree, however, that it's still horseshit.

The only thing the update does different is leave the license installed after you uninstall Unbox. Unbox has always downloaded the videos and installed the license for WMP or any other media player that supports the DRM, but if you uninstalled Unbox the license was removed leaving you with useless video files.

Hopefully someone will figure out how to strip the DRM, if they haven't already. I've tried searching for a way, but the top results in Google are links to shady shareware, all with different names but identical in looks, that claims to do it, but I'm not installing that.

But my initial complaint was, as an Unbox user, I didn't get notified. If I had not seen the story linked here, I wouldn't have known.

The writing for NOLF was absolutely top-notch. Early on you got such great eavesdropping opportunities as listening to henchmen discuss the socio-economic impacts of criminals drinking beer more than the average person does, and I remember later on at one point you walked in on a tryst between a scientist and... a goat.

And of course in one of the first exchanges of the game...

"You look like you need a monkey!"

For a game that was basically ripping off Austin Powers the writing held up better for NOLF than AP.
That is why the game series was awesome.

Wow...just wow, the guy must have known he had very little time left, and yet he shared some of his final thoughts with us, poetic.

What a hell of a guy.

Well, he did smoke and quit 30 years ago. He knew it was coming and told everyone to don't smoke.
