Disney is hoping to target young folks–you know, the ones ditching compact discs like a bunch of rats deserting a ship after they’ve feasted on the scurvy-ridden sailors–with the new CDVU+. The “upgrade” offers “digital magazine extras, song lyrics, band photos and other extras,” some of which sounds an awful lot like the stuff CDs have been offering for decades, except on your computer. Hey, don’t many major labels already include “digital booklets” with their downloadable albums, like the one I got with my copy of The Emancipation of Mimi? At least the packaging is recyclable. Too bad about all those Jonas Brothers discs that will need to be landfilled in six months, though.
