What in the Sam Hill Is CD 2.0?

(idolator) "[National Assn. of Recording Merchandisers president Jim] Donio cited statistics about piracy, pointing out that 42% of all music acquisition is paid, and that despite a recent rebound in the first quarter of this year, CD sales continue to drop.

He then suggested that a new version of 'CD 2.0,' a sort of hybrid compact disc, might be a solution." Unfortunately, the Billboard piece that mentions this bit of nomenclature doesn't really get into what "CD 2.0" will consist of.

Perhaps it means that it'll be more advanced than the DualDisc, which was apparently version 1.92 of the CD? Maybe they'll all be bundled with a social-networking component! [One Idolator reader suggested, "I think 2.0 stands for 'Let's forget the lesson Sony learned and just put rootkits on all the CDs again.'" - more on this story
