Only the most incredible, beautiful, heartbreaking interactive experience EVAR. One of the three main reasons why the 360 is the best system, the other two being Mass Effect and Xbox Live. BioShock = Win.
"Dude, you played BioShock yet? It's seriously h4x!"
"No, man, I'm an ignorant lump who only likes to play Halo. I'm not cool enough to play BioShock."
Digital *Restrictions* Management.
Policy/Code that restricts usage of media that you "own".
You buy a CD. You copy its tracks to your computer. DRM steps in and restricts how you use those tracks -- you can only play the song XX times, you can't send it to anyone, you can't copy it to your portable audio player, etc.
An evil corporation set on buying every video game company till there is nothing left.

Rentware was a term coined in the days following the release of Spore, a critically acclaimed A title that shipped with SecuROM
, a copyright protection program that limits what you can do with a game you purchase and may potentially harm your computer.
The term rentware describes the new direction the PC market has been going in, where buying a game does not mean you are actually purchasing a video game anymore, but more so the rights to play the game--as long as you are allowed to. For instance, if you do not get online every ten days for the game Spore, the game will then lock itself out and you will be prevented from playing it until reactivated, thus leaving you with a $50 coaster.
Dude 1: Hey man I just bought BioShock but I've used up my three activations and now I can't play the game anymore.
Dude 2: What did you expect from rentware? At least you now have a coaster.
