Music Storeand Sony's being called
Connectmay tell us a lot about how the respective designers think.
For my test, I used a very modest collection of 431 standard MP3 files. SonicStage 2 refused to transfer 15 of the files, posting a nonsensical error message. After that, it took an agonizingly long two hours and 13 minutes to transfer the remaining 416 tracks to the Walkman. By contrast, Apple’s iTunes software transferred all 431 songs to an iPod in about four minutes.
Utterly classic. Another writer (on Engadget or Gizmodo), talked about Sony’s “sales prevention division”, which sounds about right.
Received data seems to be invalid. The wanted file does probably not exist or the guys at last.fm changed something.
