iSpin DVDs and CDs

Stelix today introduced a new software concept called iSpin. Although pitched at businesses, the technology promises to streamline digital copies for portable media players: putting the CD or DVD in a PC's drive automatically pops up a program which can automatically transfer portable versions of audiobooks, music, or video to whichever music software and portable player a user owns -- including the iPod, PSP, Sansa, and Zune, the company says. The process both saves the trouble of ripping content for less experienced users and also ensures that every buyer has a legitimate copy on their PC and player without running into legal roadblocks.

iSpin should be available now to content creators, and should make its way to albums, games, and movies over the next few months. It currently runs on Windows PCs; the company hasn't confirmed the development of a Mac version.
