A new digital format launched in Australia called DDA could soon pave way for albums to be sold not as CDs but as USB sticks complete with tags to identify the content. The DDA USB Stick comes with the album in MP3 or WAV format to prevent any compatibility issues.
It also comes with a special DDA player and a tracklist builder and would even allow buyers to log-in to a portal where they can access music videos, news, and updates from the artist of the DDA USB Stick they bought. The music in the DDA Stick can reportedly be transferred to the computer or even burned to a CD with no copyright issues to be wary of. Cost shouldn’t be a problem either, as the price of once DDA Stick will most likely be equivalent to the price of one CD. According to source, Virgin, Sanity and HMV will be stocking these sticks soon.
