You gotta love European cell carrier Orange's lame attempt to cash in on the whole remix craze. They're launching a new service where subscribers can install an application called Fireplayer on their phones and then — and we're not making this up — pay a massive £3.50, or nearly seven bucks, to buy a song, "remix" it on the phones, and turn it into a ringtone. Motorola already includes a somewhat similar software app called MotoMixer on some of there phones, and we don't dispute that there might be a few people who want to experience the unpleasantness of trying to remix music on a cellphone, but to pay £3.50 for the privilege? Nah.
