Another new music format that will fail

Sandisk and all the major record companies except Universal are going to be rolling out a new physical music format this fall on microSD cards. These cards are expected to be about 1 gigabyte and have the music in mp3 format with videos, artwork, and other little trinkets. They’re rumored to be selling for between $7-15 per album. The National Post has a good article with some information on why the format will not last long. Maybe they should consider lowering the prices of all CDs, even catalog items.

  1. My new laptop doesn’t even have an SD slot anymore. A gigabyte of space is pretty big — they better have a lot of trinkets.
