Are you nuts? The person who buys a PS3 as only a Bluray player is NOT who they want to buy it, as Sony will never make back the money they lost selling the unit to them as that consumer will never buy any additional items for it outside of the PS3 DvD/Bluray controller for it. That said, I have a Ps3 and I like it a lot.

Recording Music Without the Recording Industry 234

hephaist0s writes "The 2008 RPM Challenge — to write and record an original album in February, just because you can — is about to begin. Hundreds of musicians from around the world have already signed up. Last year, more than 850 albums were recorded as part of the challenge, a testament to what can be done by independent musicians without a label, without the RIAA, and often without a professional studio. The efforts ranged from an album made entirely on a Nintendo Game Boy to a Speed Racer rock opera, produced by both experienced bands and novice musicians, often in continent-spanning online collaborations. Last year's challenge generated one of the largest free jukeboxes of original music available online, built to stream on-demand all 8500-plus original, artist-owned songs. Imagine if grassroots, independent systems like this foretold the future of recorded music and its distribution."
