Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Diamond Multimedia began shipping its Rio MP3 digital music player in the US, today, after the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) last month failed to get the device banned unless Diamond modified it to prevent it being used to pirate copyright music. The Walkman-sized device can store up to 60 minutes of music encoded in the MPEG-based MP3 format. Files are downloaded from the Internet or copied over from a CD onto a PC, from which they are then transferred to the Rio. Rio is retailing for $199.95. The UK release is in Decemeber, and it will cost £175 (inc. VAT) this side of the Pond. ®

  • Consumer electronics companies Aiwa and Sanyo, and PC storage specialist Castlewood, are to co-operate on the development of a hi-fi separate that will play MP3 and WAV files, among others. The deck uses a built in Castlwood 2GB Orb drive to transfer downloaded tracks from a PC, a deal that mirrors Iomega's drive to persuade hi-fi manufacturers to use its Zip format for the same task.
