Sony and Universal launching POP vending machines-Sony什麼都賣,什麼都不奇怪!

Sure, downloading songs and movies is easy these days (even when done legally), but what if you don’t have a computer or internet connection? “How would I be reading this post, then?” you might ask. Fair point, but there must be dozens of other people out there with portable media players yet no way to fill them, and for this market Sony and Universal have partnered to create POP, the “instant entertainment 24/7” vending machine hitting the UK this holiday season. Unlike other boxes that sell media players, this one sells content to fill them, downloaded straight to a memory card, flash drive, PMP, or other (USB-supporting) portable device. You can also purchase media-based content on DVD and Blu-ray if you like, games too, all of which “pop” out shrink wrapped and in full retail garb. Being able to buy a Blu-ray disc at midnight on a dark corner sounds mildly interesting, but with no mention of file formats or DRM or anything else, you won’t find us sticking our memory cards into this thing’s slots anytime soon.

我們都知道,這年頭要下載歌曲和電影非常容易,但倘若今天你沒有電腦或者是網路呢?(看到這裡你可能會想,我幹麻浪費我時間看這則新聞)。鼻要這樣嘛~但我相信一定有許多人擁有MP3但卻沒有灌音樂或電影的管道,針對這樣的市場,Sony和環球影城在今年假期旺季合作開發出「POP」這種即時娛樂販賣機。相較於其他箱子販賣多媒體撥放器,這台機器販賣多媒體的內容。它可以直接下載到任何你的記憶卡、隨身碟、PMP或者其他可攜式產品(前提是要支援USB)。只要付費,DVD、藍光畫質的影片,甚至遊戲就可以迅速、直接的下載到你的多媒體播放器裡。不難想像,一個人三更半夜站在奇怪的角落購買下載藍光影片,這樣的畫面雖然感覺有些可笑,但不須考慮格式、DRM或其他有的沒的,你再不會看到我們拿著我們的記憶卡在那些惱人的插槽上插來插去拉!

小波許愛插嘴:這樣的市場…在台灣應該是超小眾吧@@ 但挺酷的就是了! 哈 😆
