SanDisk introduces "gruvi" memory card with built-in DRM

Reuters is reporting this morning that SanDisk has introduced a new line of memory cards specially designed for transporting secure, licensed files such as downloaded tunes between computers and CE devices:

The first cards to go on the market in November will come preloaded with the Rolling Stones' new CD "A Bigger Bang," said SanDisk, which helped pioneer flash memory storage cards used in phones and digital cameras.

Internet media company Yahoo Inc. said customers who subscribe to its digital music service could use the card which will be sold under the name gruvi. Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd also said it would support gruvi in its phones.
