You scan the game’s barcode, and the machine tells you its trade-in value. If you decide to sell the game, you have to put the disc into the hardware directly. “Once a disc is inserted into the kiosk, the disc is spun up, identified and evaluated for damage,” Rudy explained. “The kiosk is also able to tell if the disc is burned, is a CD or is an old AOL advertising disc and would reject it. If the disc is unidentifiable or does not match what the user stated, there will be a screen that advises the user that the disc did not match and the disc will be returned.Ars Technica
The Clash rocks!
I am glad I now have a huge, instant collection on CD, but I really had to laugh when I opened this box. You see, the really nice folks that went through the trouble to ask the label to send a Johnny Cash box set (after I made a comment about him being one of my lifelong favorite artists) must have left a message for someone who told someone (probably in another message) who may have written a note or, more likely, left another message… and that person was probably thinking…
“why don’t we send him Johnny Cash like we’ve been sending everyone else?”
Very easy to mix up—especially with voice mail or in the handwriting of someone who should have been a doctor. So, I know what I’ll be listening to on my next long ride in the car.
Don’t get me wrong. I am ecstatic about my new music collection and I really do love The Clash, so it’s good times as usual. I was pretty fired up about the imending delivery of a Johnny Cash box set today though.
I guess it’s iTunes for now!
