One of my friends tried to install HMV Digital, and it killed everything on his machine – all MS apps (.Net environment, Outlook, Word, even Paint), Google apps (Google Talk and Desktop) were crashed, leaving only the HMV installer!! Apparently, this application has been developed with Microsoft, amidst quite a lot of fanfare (apparently they’re competing with the iPod and iTunes)…
Alistair Baker, Microsoft Managing Director, UK and Vice President EMEA, said:
“This leading edge retail project enables music fans to buy music in-store and online – in fact anywhere. Consumers will be able to listen to the music they want to hear on a whole range of devices from different manufacturers. The development of the HMV jukebox player combines the industry knowledge of the HMV team with the software development, product expertise and consulting skills of Microsoft. HMV Digital is all about freedom of choice and Microsoft is proud that its technology is at the heart of this service.”
Not if it doesn’t install!!
Nice one guys, try again ;-)
