Submission + - "Slot Music" format seeks to replace Music CDs (seekingalpha.com)

An anonymous reader writes: In the face of dwindling music-CD sales Sony BMG, Universal, Vivendi and Warner Music Group team up with SanDisk to create a new storage medium to be sold in stores.

The new format is simply a 1GB MicroSD card with mp3 music encoded with up to 320kbit/s. To my surprise the cards will come to you without any DRM protection whatsoever. The retail versions of the so-called "Slot Music" media also contain USB-adapters for easy use on PCs and Laptops. But with MicroSD slots absent from most media players including Apples Iphone and Ipod chances are this format will go the way of the HD-DVD
