The ‘revolutionary’ new physical format for music – SlotMusic. Talk about pointless.

So you get an easily lost, 1GB Micro-SD card containing your album of choice in the lossy mp3 format (which is daft considering 1GB is enough for a whole lossless album anyway).

“slotMusic cards enable consumers to instantly and easily enjoy music from their favorite artists 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.”

Ah yes, so much better than buying a couple of 4GB cards for probably the same price and ripping your whole music collection to them with no worries about passwords, downloading or DRM. Oh, hang on…
