Did you even look at the website?
If you pay £30 for the newspaper album it includes the MP3 or WAV download
So they are not asking for you to pay for it twice.

SBS2003 was a sound product, it provided a great set of tools for up to 75 users. Coupled with Backup Exec and a good hardware warranty you had all bases covered.
SBS2008 increased the license costs, and the hardware demands making it less affordable, and now 2011 requires 10gb RAM and a quad core CPU?
MS need to get back to basics. What does a small office need? File sharing, email and a good backup. This latest move serves only to push people to exploring other options.
" For sure it should be a whole lot quicker."
This is the kind of sentence I would expect to hear from an Italian racing driver during a post race interview.
Unless English is a second language to you, STOP IT.
"I know with certainty", "I am positive" or "I am sure". Pick one, any one.
HTC make excellent phones, the legend and desire are great, and if the promises of Android 2.2 deliver then it really will be an Iphone beater.
I have never bought an I phone, I just can't justify the cost of a ticket to hang out in Steve's garden, now Google have caught up, I'll never need to.
I had a situation yesterday where a very old DOS based app wouldn't work on a new Win7 PC. I setup XP mode, and as far as the customer is concerned the virtualised app works just as it did before.
I hope MS continue this trend so that legacy code can be dropped and a more refined and secure OS can be produced while maintaining compatability.
I'm guessing but 3D ready probably means it has a refresh rate of 120hz or higher, so it can produce a stereoscopic image at 60hz per eye.
The year of 3D for me was 1996 playing games with a pair of Elsa revelators. Everything was stalled for 15 years while LCD's tried to catch up with CRT quality.
I use XBMC on an Acer Revo because the Atom CPU can't handle 1080p flash in the iPlayer on Windows.
Booting XBMC has allowed me to use the Iplayer HD content perfectly, now that cord has been cut.
Absolute bastards. It's like the BBC telling us we can only watch their channels on a Sony branded TV.
... it just didn't take off. http://www.microsoft.com/hk/windowsxp/tabletPC/default.mspx
I think we need a netbook/slate compromise. A dual core Atom based slate with an optional stand/keyboard/optical drive and no vendor lock in. Then people will quickly lose interest in the ipad.
OEM vendors are on MS's side and still pushing WinMo's, the majority of HTC's phones are Win, Android is the exception.
The App store on WinMo is new. It has been around for a matter of months. It's significant for the Iphone because it's the only way you can install new programs on the phone, thanks to the Apple walled garden. How do you think apps were installed on WinMo phones before the app store was available? 1000's of downloadable apps on the internet that's how.
Microsoft are not locking down the phone, they would only do that if they produced hardware. They need to allow the vendors to customise the phones to suit, and they do, just look at the HTC front end software.
The only reason this might change is if MS produce a Zune-phone. Otherwise, brace yourself for Windows Mobile 7 for years to come.
....he went one better than that, he went on to invent the Universal Remote Control.
Seriously, just because a man hasn't done anything "notable" (i.e. invented an entire field of computing, again) doesn't mean you have to prod your keyboard with the bitter stick.
By the same token you could be writing about how Einstein was a bit of a letdown in the years following his theory of relativity.
....PC's and consoles step in. All directx games have been viewable in 3D using stereoscopic glasses for a good 12 years. I think this movement was stalled by the popularity of LCD's with low refresh rates.
All Console and PC games should be made with 3D in mind (crosshairs in the right place with the 3d effect on etc), films will soon follow.
...the media. Nintendo says you have to use their cartridges under license. Microsoft don't force you to use their own brand of DVD's.
Nintendo have been doing this since the NES, so this ruling is a little late in the day. The next round of consoles will distribute games over teh internets so perhaps consoles will be entirely sealed bricks. No media slots, bluetooth controllers, wifi, just a slot for the powerto plug in and a HDMI cable?
Windows 7, quite simply, is a good OS.
If you're happy with XP, stick with it. Nobody is forcing you to upgrade.
I have 7 on a netbook, business desktop on an AD domain and gaming machine at home. It works flawlessly on all of them. Virtual Box runs like a dream on my x64 desktop for Linux.
It's as if people are annoyed with MS for coming up with a good OS. Even the Mac Weekly podcast has admitted that Windows is now in parity with OSX.
