Multimedia, AV "On October 1 1982, Joel's sixth studio album, 52nd Street, was the first commercially released CD album... Which means CDs are 30-years-old today. It's worth noting here that 52nd Street wasn't a new album - it was launched initially in 1978, but it was selected for relaunch on the new digital audio disc, rolling out alongside the first CD player - the Sony CDP-101 - in Japan. But of course, the CD didn't spring up overnight - the road to launch started long before 1982." I'm still 100% CD when it comes to music. The act of physically holding a new album in your hands for the first time and gently placing the disk in the tray can't be matched by pressing a download button behind a computer.

Of course, the files will be larger.

Not just "someone", Monty is the creator of Ogg Vorbis. He surely knows more about digital audio than you can ever hope to understand.

If you don't know who Monty is this tells more about you than about him.

has written a rant

Your comment is rant. Monty's piece can be published in a respectable journal.
