Philips said it planned to produce 600,000 of the devices every month. Computer makers will pay between 80 and 90 euros ($97-$109) per DVD writer when buying in large quantities, while consumers will have to pay around 180 euros."

    riaa at it again

    i found it funny that their general counsel claimed it was for the sake of the creative process. i think the recording industry has done enough already to deny artists a promising future. just look at teeny bopper hits. one hit wonders help their wallets thrive. then you're out the door on your butt. face it, the creative process has been dead for quite some time. from what i've read and understand, most swappers weren't fans to begin with and wouldn't have bought the album anyway. how much longer do i have to hear this c***? (and yes, the word c*** does have a dual meaning there)
