Creative Takes Back FM Recording Functionality

Guess who the RIAA was able to roll over in its latest attempt at destroying the world? If you guessed Creative, you win a prize. Your prize is the newly found inability to do something with your MP3 player that you previously could. It seems that due to “licensing issues,” Creative has removed the functionality of its Zen Vision:M to record live FM broadcasts. I wonder how they came to that decision.

Second part of the quiz. Guess who has a Zen Vision:M, has loved it up until this day, and now refuses to upgrade his firmware because he likes to record “This American Life?” Me.
