Games I think we need to start a digital rights category or something (the next version of OSNews will have it, for sure), because we have yet another article about this subject. After Sony removed the Other OS feature from the PlayStation 3, a European PlayStation 3 owner successfully secured a partial refund from Amazon under the European Sale of Goods Act. Sony has now retaliated, stating it is not going to reimburse retailers.

Looking at it as a musician's tool, I would agree with you that the MiniDisc format was the best thing to ever happen to portable recording. However, for simple playback I much prefer solid state devices. They are more reliable (no moving parts) and withstand the worst shocks and jolts. Some even come with recording capabilities, though admittedly far inferior to MD recorders.

Now that flash based MP3 players can be had for under $20, there's no need to subject your expensive and nigh irreplaceable MD player to possible loss, theft or damage.

All that said, I'd absolutely LOVE to have an MD recorder, preferably a Sony MZM200 or similar.
