Time limited CDs (a modest proposal?)

Postcards from the Pug Bus: Newest Sony software will limit CD plays. Read with your humor hat on. Had me going until this quote:

“We do not anticipate the one-hundred-play limit will be aninconvenience to most customers,” McKee continued. “As music piratescorrectly argue, the majority of CDs contain only five or sixlistenable cuts anyway, so the likelihood of playing a CD one hundredtimes is slim.”

Heh.

    “Ciufoli” means…nothing of nothing

    Im not sure this is a joke or not but if it isnt i would explain to why sony is nolonger regarded as the best in any of its fields of participation. If and when they decide to implement this stupid proffit decreasing idea i realy hope they clearly mark their products so i dont make the mistake and buy one. If your not happy with something (and if this is going to happen im sure i wont be) just dont buy it they will soon understand the error of their ways.
