WHAT THE WORLD MAY OR MAY NOT BE WAITING FOR: Napster have launched a set of pre-pay cards, like mobile phone cards. The idea is that this will open up the world of legal downloading to people under the age of 18 who are unable to get the credit cards they need to buy music online. Because, of course, that's going to stop people taking music from file-sharing networks. Yer average fifteen year old is going to think "I could download the new Britney Federline single from Bittorrent right now, or I could go down the shops, buy a card, come back here, punch in a number, and then download the Britney Federline single. In a format which I may or may not be able to use on my portable music player. Oooh, what to do?"
