Fans of the Rolling Stones will be pleased to hear that the band is making their new album available on a flash card format. "The Bigger Bang" will be released by Virgin Records on memory card, which provides greater flexibility and added features to to prevent copying. The card works with mobile phones and hand-held computers, and will be available in November at select US stores for $39.95 (£22.06).

SanDisk spokesman Ken Castle said while the card can be taken out and transferred to other different devices such as mobiles and electronic organisers, the content stays locked in the card.
