The Beginning of the End for Cd's?

Interesting story on Foxnews.com today about ... albums being sold on memory cards instead of cd's with no copyright protections!!!

"SanDisk Corp., four major record labels and retailers Best Buy Co. and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. are hoping that albums sold on microSD memory cards will at least provide an additional stream of sales. The companies unveiled plans Monday to sell memory cards loaded with music in the MP3 format, free of copy protections."
They are calling it SlotMusic.
Link to story in headline.
Could be interesting!!

n done in Australia already with Jimmy Barnes.

It is interesting as memory cards can have a huge memory - so it leaves the option way open of adding alot of bonus stuff.

Neil Young released or is releasing his discography in the Java format - so it will be updatable.
