The Null Device

The big guns of the Recording Racket are bringing out MusicNet and Duet, two "Napster-killer" services, to turn the kiddies onto a legal, legit way of downloading their favourite buzzy warbles, in a "secure" format that the recording companies can keep under tight control. The thing is, not only do the tracks need special software to play (you'll need to fire up your Windows PC every time you want to listen to the latest Bizkit Park opus), but they also expire after 30 days, meaning that you have to download (and pay for) them all over again if you still want to listen to them. Ah yes, I can see how that will prove a big hit.
