Sony is going for an interesting extention of its MD range: 1Gig but swapable. So you could have one disk with each music style or one for running, one for relaxing, etc.

Here is the product, due in April.

Quote from the article "The new machines will be able to play both new and old discs and have built-in copyright protection."

Thanks for sharing this story, M.

To me, this story suggests that the models will be nothing more than the ill-conceived NetMD player with an add-on flash card for added storage. The Sony MD is an example of what can happen when you take a great idea and then let the lawyers have their way with it. Now, it seems more like a tool from the past, designed to protect obsolete intellectual and copyright laws. Sales will be the ultimate arbiter, and I suspect that they will be underwhelming, at best.
