    I pulled this story off of some website.

    It seems that now you can burn a cd while waiting for you coffee at Starbucks now.

    "...Starbucks customers will be able to record five songs for $6.99 -- about twice the price of a double-tall latte -- in about three minutes.
    "The goal here is how does a customer get their music in about the same time as it takes to get a grande cappuccino," said Felice Swapp, director of strategic initiatives for HP.
    Additional songs will go for 99 cents each, with up to 80 minutes of music on one disk. For now, customers can purchase only single tracks, but ultimately complete albums will be available."

    Article here.

    So what do you guys think of this development? I'd rather not support the music cartel but it's kinda a neat idea.

    I'm wondering if when you do burn/buy the cd do you get some custom cd case with custom design or do you get a crappy ass starbucks logo or maybe a shitty cd-r logo.. hehe
