The music industry is so out of touch its not even funny

Slotmusic is a collaboration between Universial music, Sony BMG, Warner music and EMI. Basiclly its DRM free music distrubuted on microSD cards. Yes microSD cards, why? I don't know, but it shows how out of touch the music industy really is. Not defending the iphone or ipod but like it or not there the most popular at the moment and they don't support microSD cards. Does the Zune? Don't think so either. I also have no idea whos going to pay for music on MicroSD? I bet the cards are locked to the drive, so that means swapping the · Online and P2P distrubtion is the way forward period. Hell I just bought 12 tunes from yesterday. Cost me about 16 pound in total.
