SanDisk Introduces SlotMusic

When the iPod came out along with its music store iTunes, it changed the way we bought and listened to music.  From buying CD's or cassette tapes or vinyl records, we opted for the easily portable, reproduceable and easier-to-store-in-a-portable-music-player mp3.   That's really what happened and nobody in the world is denying it. Now why then is the music industry partnering with a flask disk company to provide us another physical media storage?  SanDisk, maker of semiconductor storage devices such as flash drives and memory cards, along with the major record labels, is launching a new product they call "slotMusic".  The product is simple, instead of using a CD as the storage for the music, they use a 1GB microSD memory card.Leaders in music, retail and flash memory technology today announced they’re bringing consumers an innovative, new physical music format, dubbed “slotMusic™.” microSD™ cards will soon be made available with pre-loaded, high quality, DRM-free MP3 music of top artists from EMI Music, SONY BMG, Universal Music Group, and Warner Music Group. A selection of slotMusic cards will first be available at brick-and-mortar and online stores throughout the U.S., including Best Buy and Wal-Mart, with Europe to follow. A complete list of slotMusic albums, availability and pricing will be announced in time for the coming holiday season. SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK), inventor of the ubiquitous microSD format, is leading the technology development behind slotMusic. [Press Release]Sure the idea of storing music on memory cards is not anything new, but to sell it in record stores?  It sounds like a great innovative idea but inntroducing a new physical media storage just causes more problems for the consumer, like where are they going to play it?  According to SanDisk, slotMusic will be intended for mobile phones.  Sounds good, but is it viable?  Who in their right mind would buy dozens of microSD cards for 7 to 10 dollars a pop when they can easily get their music online for free, store and organize them all in a hard drive and take all the music they need on a PMP?"slotMusic offers consumers an immediate, tangible, and high quality alternative to CDs and digital delivery," said Danielle Levitas, vice president, Consumer, Broadband & New Media, IDC. "This year, more than 1.2 billion mobile phones will ship globally, outstripping portable media players by nearly an order of magnitude - and this trend is accelerating."  [Press Release]Fine, it may not all be that bad.  At least the music on slotMusic will be DRM-free and you get lots of new cards for use in other purposes when you decide to transfer the music.  Moreover, a physical tangible alternative to the CD does sound nice. Generally, I think the idea is far fetched.  They may have the numbers or the feasibility studies, but portable media players like the iPod or Zune or Zen versus the slotMusic?  It wouldn't be a surprise if the latter got clobbered.

SanDisk Says Vista Is Not Optimized For Solid State Drives

SanDisk, a popular maker of hard drives, flash drives and other storage solutions is having problems making solid State Drives (SSD's) work for Windows Vista powered computers.SanDisk is a proven manufacturer of storage solutions.  They are one of the competitive brands in the storage solutions market and have been making hard drives, flash drives and solid state drives for desktops, laptops, cameras, mobile telephones, UMPC's etc.In fact, SanDisk supplies PC manufacturers with hard drives and it is possible that the more popular brands like Dell, HP, Apple or Toshiba have contracts with SanDisk to supply their high-end and next generation laptops with Solid State Drives.  SSD's are becoming the choice storage solution for portable gadgets.  MacBook Airs, iPods and iPhones all use SSD's.  UMPC's are also using SSD's due to the more compact size of the drive and large capacity.Needless to say, it came as a blow to Microsoft when SanDisk announced that SSD's are not a great partner for the software maker's current flagship OS, Windows Vista.SanDisk Chairman and CEO Eli Harari said at a conference call while reporting the company's second quarter earnings, that Windows Vista presents a special (and difficult) challenge to SSD manufacturers, "As soon as you get into Vista applications in notebook and desktop, you start running into very demanding applications because Vista is not optimized for flash memory solid-state disk."The CEO also pointed out that they aren't having a problem building the SSD's  for many of the popular and cheap gadgets on the market, "In very low-end, ultra low-cost PCs, existing controllers can get the job done for 8-, 16-, and 32-gigabyte storage because these are relatively unsophisticated and demanding requirements." Harari continued, "We have very good internal controller technology, as you know...That said, I'd say that we are now behind because we did not fully understand, frankly, the limitations in the Vista environment."It may not be Microsoft's concern at the moment, but if the next generation of computers will be using SSD's, Microsoft needs to improve on Vista's requirements so they'll be able to run the OS on tomorrow's computers.  Read More
