Sony Admits MP3 Error

Wow, this is NEWS ! Really, I was so pissed off with Sony when they didn't introduce MP3 in their audio systems giving damned reasons, including supposedly saying that the MP3 format was against music creators (not to mention that Sony were music distributors and considered MP3 to be cutting down their sales), blah, blah, blah ...

"In a rare show admission of taking a wrong turn, Sony's officials have admitted that their stance on MP3 players was wrong." While this was pretty obvious to anyone who has ever shopped for a portable MP3 player, it is nice to see Sony admit their shortcoming. Ken Kutaragi puts it best when he says, "We're growing up," and with any luck future devices won't be crippled with silly formats no one uses.
