They gave us Betamax. They gave us the ATRAC file format. They gave us the UMD. They gave us a merger with BMG which may yet prove to need some expensive reworking.

The trend, of course, is that Sony might just be poking about in the dark without much of a clue, burning money in a desperate bid to see some way forward.

Is it any surprise, then, that they've decided to underwrite Kevin Federline's album?

Presumably they're planning on building up a big stock of useless CDs in case a judge makes them give free records out to deserving causes at some point in the future.
