Sandisk and some Music Labels have teamed up to bring us Slot Music, instead of buying a CD or an 8 track, you buy a microSD card full of music that is ready to be played on mobile phones, smart phones and any multimedia device that supports microSD cards.
According to an article in the Wall Street Journal (must register to view), there will be 29 albums available from 4 labels. SlotMusic will be available from Major Retailers like Best Buy.
Back in April we told you about Microsoft wanting to steal our music, music we purchased from MSN music.
We I have come to find out from my buddy Jason Dunn, that Microsoft has nixed the August 31st deadline and MSN music owners can still transfer there music until atleast 2011.
While I am somewhat relived, this still does not address the issue, it is unfair and unethical for Microsoft to put a time limit on music I purchased legally, and if Microsoft wants to make things right they need to offer people who paid for MSN Music a partial refund or credit at some other Music store.
The RIAA has scored a victory in the first ever Federal Criminal Trial against an online music pirate. A 25 year old Barry Gitarts of Brooklyn (NYC) was convicted by a Federal Jury in Va. He faces up to 5 years in prison, and a $250,000 fine, oh and he also has to pay the RIAA for the music he pirated.
So can you face a similar case for sharing music? Nah probably not. Gitarts did a lot more than just share files on P2P, he hosted the server and made it available to everyone in a private group called “Apocalypse Production Crew”.

I received Maximo Products’ iMetal iP-HS1 and iP-HS2 headsets designed specifically for the iPhone early last week. The iP-HS1 and iP-HS2 feature a lightweight alloy metal body and a “high definition” microphone sensor. Both feature neodymium drivers and similar Sensitivity and Frequency Response numbers. I decided to try each of the products out for a few days each. In this review I’ll break down a few pros and cons I observed over the course of the past week for both items.
The RIAA has had a lot of crazy ideas over the past year; from suggesting that Anti-Virus programs scan your PC for illegal content, to having ISPs install filters on their network.
But now they have an idea to tax your internet bill 5 extra dollars a month, to compensate money they are losing to file sharing. The money would go into a pool and depending on an artist popularity that artist will get a bigger or smaller chunk of that money.
