Sony music

Sigh. From an article by David Pogue at the New York Times:
“Overall, Sony’s general incompetence when it comes to digital music boggles the mind. First there was its ‘iPod killer’ music players, which were initially released without the ability to play a little file format called MP3. Then there was its disastrous Connect music store, whose design was so wasteful of screen space it was almost unusable. And now the astonishing move to copy-protect all of its music CD’s-ironically, in some cases, over the strident objections of the actual bands-with software that behaves like spyware.”
