killing the record industry with a Raspberry Pi

"Peter Sunde, co-founder of The Pirate Bay, has built a machine that makes 100 copies per second of Gnarls Barkley's 'Crazy,' storing them in /dev/null (which is of course, deleting them even as they're created). The machine, called a 'Kopimashin,' is cobbled together out of a Raspberry Pi, some hacky python that he doesn't want to show anyone, and an LCD screen that calculates a running tally of the damages he's inflicted upon the record industry through its use. The 8,000,000 copies it makes every day costs the record industry $10m/day in losses. At that rate, they'll be bankrupt in a few weeks at most." [link]
