Universal Music will begin releasing singles on USB memory sticks October 29 to compensate for the decreasing sales of CDs. The first releases will be those by the rock band Keane and Pussycat Doll Nicole at a price of ~$10.00.

EMI plans to release Pink Floyd’s studio album on the same format, while Warner is planning a November release of the electro-punk band Hadouken.

Prince has asked YouTube to remove unauthorized clips of his recent concert in London. There have been more than 1,000 of them eliminated in the past week by Web Sheriff, a company he hired to do the dirty work. He is also trying to stop unauthorized filesharing and items sold on eBay without his permission. Managing director of the company John Giacobbi said, “Prince feels very strongly that people should remember his concerts as they were, not as some grainy mobile phone footage.”

What a great Humpday treat! Bob Dylan, at the height of his youth, and he digs Gear Live. We admit that it is only a promo for his new album coming out October 1. Send e-grams to all your buds in “Subterranean Homesick Blues” style. The deluxe version of his “Greatest Songs Album” will feature almost 60 tunes from the musical poet with 10 limited edition postcards, mini vinyl replica artwork, and a booklet with images and liner notes. Until his album becomes available, remember to “get dressed, get blessed, try to be a success.”
