Duke it out.

The Sony Net Juke [Babel] (aka NAS-A1) looks like it could herald the start of a new genre, the Internet attached home jukebox. The NAS (for Network Audio System) uses a special Japanese broadband download service to download tracks and albums onto an internal 40GB hard disk (over 1000 hours of music, see?). No MP3 though, just DRM’d ATRAC3 and PCM [that’s quite enough acronyms for this post – Ed].

I’m a bit worried about the fact that Babel keeps referring to it as a ‘knitting machine’, so forgive me if I’ve got it completely wrong and this thing actually serves as a wool and pattern repository for silver surfers.
