"Apple Computer has pulled its iPod music player from store shelves in France because the device is capable of producing noise levels that exceed government regulations.
The Mac maker confirmed Monday that it has stopped shipments in that country for the next 15 days as it works on a fix that will keep the device from producing more than the 100 decibel maximum allowed under French law. "

Its always the bloody French....

Sharing / Distribution Wars
Topic: Music 3:53 pm EDT, Sep 27, 2002

It's a matter of competition. A manufactured CD for $1.40 can compete with a bootleg copy: Manufactured CDs generally play better and come with nice packages and liner notes. The industry can still make millions of dollars, just not billions. And many artists can go back to making money the old-fashioned way¬óby working harder and performing more. Things change, folks! The gravy train has left the station.

The U.S. government should not be corrupted by the Recording Industry Association of America and should instead do more about price fixing. And let's stop lecturing people about legality and morality. Students in particular are not moral reprobates, nor are they fools. They are pragmatists, and they stretch the rules along with their budgets. This is a crowd that worships the fake ID and is taught to question authority. So you're going to lecture them about copyrights? Give up. Rethink your business model. The problem will be solved.

Sharing / Distribution Wars - New Nirvana song reaches airwaves - Sep. 27, 2002
Topic: Music 3:43 pm EDT, Sep 27, 2002

"A long-anticipated Nirvana song that's been the subject of much speculation and litigation finally surfaced on the nation's airwaves this week, more than eight years after singer Kurt Cobain killed himself.
Cobain's estate closely guarded "You Know You're Right," making it one of the most legendary unreleased tracks in rock history. The band, which launched the early 1990s "grunge" movement, recorded it in late January 1994, less than three months before Cobain's death.

"It may not be the best song they ever did, but it's probably in the top 10," Cobain biographer Charles Cross said Thursday. " - New Nirvana song reaches airwaves - Sep. 27, 2002 Technology | Trent Reznor's pretty hate machines

"Almost every night in his New Orleans studio, Reznor leaves his work on the upcoming Nine Inch Nails album (which he cheekily refers to as "More Songs About Oppression and Slavery") for the Nazi shoot-'em-up game Return to Castle Wolfenstein. For the 36-year-old, games and gadgetry aren't just diversions; they're a vital means of artistic exploration. "

No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani, more accustomed to navel-baring outfits on the concert stage, opted for a traditional white John Galliano dress at her London wedding on Saturday, as she married Bush guitarist-frontman Gavin Rossdale.

Another sad day! :(

Moby goes to space camp
Topic: Music 2:54 pm EDT, Jul 29, 2002

Having conquered this planet, Moby is setting his sights on new territory. The techno-pop sensation took time off from his world tour for an impromptu course in astronaut training from NASA.

The bald enigma, who sported a NASA-inspired spacesuit in his new video, "We Are All Made of Stars." jumped at the chance to poke around the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, this month.

Moby, describing the trip in a Web log on his Internet site, demonstrates a natural appreciation for the paradoxically super-cool and super-geeky world of space exploration.
