Rumors are building that Walt Disney Animation Studios will shortly have a big announcement. Lots of speculation about what it could be. My suspicion is that WDAS will be leaving the Hat building.

As part of their excellent coverage of CES, Engadget found the details of how Disney’s KeyChest system will work. The idea is to let you share content you purchase for one device on other devices without having to pay for it again. All this and no DRM, which doesn’t really work anyway. Basically it’s a cheap way for people who want to pay for content to do so without feeling like they’re being played by a system that takes advantage of them.
