A Gadget Burns Hours of Music Onto Discs the Size of Quarters (free registration required)

Sounds interesting doesn't it? It's the new iRiver iDP-100 Player. DataPlay (the company that makes the disks) has deals to sell prerecorded discs by artists on several major labels, including Universal, EMI, BMG and Zomba. Blank discs will cost $5 (250 megabytes) to $10 (500MB); prerecorded ones will cost about as much as a regular CD. The blank DataPlay discs can also be used to store MPEG-4 files, digital photographs, games and documents in any digital format. While the iDP-100 cannot read such files, it can be used to transfer them between computers with USB connections. It is expected to go on sale in mid-July for about $350.
