Oh dear

Has any device got such a low mark before?

Still too expensive

I'll buy more mp3s when the price is a half or a third of CDs. A quick look at hmvdigital shows the mp3 album prices are still not much less, or --ridiculously-- even *more* than the same albums in CD format (and HMV doesn't charge postage for CDs).

I'm not all that bothered about music these days, frankly, and the biz doesn't really give me much reason to take an interest.
