Creative Removes FM Radio Recording January 3, 2007Posted by WishBoNe in Hardware, Music, Random Thoughts, Software, Technology and Gadgets.
I had once thought of buying Creative due to its FM radio recording functions. It seems that I no longer have the need to buy it because the new firmware does not have the function. Why would that function be removed?
Is it used to combat piracy? I guess so. I bet it’s removed because of the slow sales of music CDs. Such function is considered illegal. So, what is legal nowadays? Maybe music is easier to transfer via online than videos. So, the fight is just between the music recorders and buying music CDs for now. Once the speed is up for downloads, vidoes would be the next fight, I guess.
