Majors create new music format (For some unknown reason)

Okay, so when I say “slotMusic,” do you hear “Blue-Ray” or “HD-DVD”? Universal, Warner, EMI and Sony BMG have joined SanDisk to create a new music media format, slotMusic. Emerging from the land of electronics in the form of tiny disks, slotMusic cards have one gigabyte of capacity (enough for songs, liner notes, album art, videos, and the like), and they are to sell for approximately a price of a CD. At the risk of sounding like a slotMusic infomercial, here is the companies’ description of how they work: “slotMusic cards enable [people] to instantly and easily [listen to] music from [certain artists signed by Universal, Warner, EMI and Sony BMG] without being dependent on a PC or internet connection. Users simply insert the slotMusic card into their microSD-enabled mobile phone or MP3 player to hear the music without passwords, downloading or digital-rights-management interfering with their personal use.” Yow!
