What to do with a company that seems hell bent on replacing or upgrading practically every component in their very deep product line? Rejoice.

I wasn’t personally a member of Technics TRACKS, their hosted, high-resolution music download service that was a going concern for those hyped on loading up hard drives, but word came rather abruptly yesterday (for some) that they had finally pulled the plug on the download service.
