    I bought this in HMV today. I can't get over how tiny it is!!!

    It's the new type of single that may end up replacing CD singles?

    It's 256MB, It had the full video, the song, a competition and a weblink.

    Just plug it into your USB drive, and hey presto! I wasnt sure how it was gonna work when i first set eyes on it; it just looked like a small white peice of plastic!

    Dude, that is very cool.:cool:
    I've heard about them but didn't know they were released yet.
    Does it work well on a Mac? Does it open iTunes automatically or do you have to click and drag?

    Really? I think the Fratellis are really good...to each his own

    Can you use it as USB storage after moving the stuff from it to your computer and deleting it?

    Definitely a positive step forward for music sales. I'm guessing the USB stick can be reused. :)

    It's 128kbps.

    You can add the track to itunes if ya want, but it opens up a little flash interactive thingy to access the video, the song, the weblink and what not, but the music video is an .flv file on the memory stick (which i converted to ipod in isquint and put on my ipod). The mp3 of the song is also in a folder on the stick. You can format it and use it as you would with any other USB memory stick. It's ace!

    It works perfectly with mac as its all accessed in a flash interactive window.
    :)

    Edit: The Fratellis rock!

    Keane have released two of these already a few months ago. First there was the one for 'Nothing in My Way', and the latest single 'A Bad Dream' was also released on USB.

    Nothing new here.

    Yes, the files can be deleted and the drives reused as normal flash drives.

    Well, they haven't exactly been around very long. The main reason I posted a thread was because of the baffling size! It's tiny! Genious :D

    Sorry, it's 160kbps. Not much better! :p
