Yeeaaarh! DVD Megacopier is a Pirate's Treasure
A device that can burn thousands of disks at once has several legitimate uses; my first thought was that such a machine would help unsigned (and non-wealthy) musicians to get their music to the masses. No doubt, however, media pirates (for-profit copiers, not private downloaders) will be stiffening their peg legs over this as well, and record execs will get their knickers in a big ol' twist...
There's a new reason to fear the chief executive's annual pep-talk to the company – being sent away with a CD, or better yet a DVD, of the event so you can enjoy it again at home.
British company Verity Systems has come up with a relatively cheap way of copying up to 2,550 CDs or DVDs at once. At £732, its LinxTower contains a ROM drive for the master disc, ten DVD burners, and enough logic to copy from the former to the latter – and up to 255 of the units can be daisy-chained together.
