Please let me know when that Blaupunkt will be going out the window so
I can catch it.
I use iTunes to organize my library of no-less-than-320 kbps music and
it works much better than anything else I've tried (and this comes
from a former Apple anti-fanboy). I agree that the iTunes store is
worthless given the poor sound quality of the products. But who needs
it? Importing stuff is dead easy.
iTunes convinced me to get an iPod. Which convinced me to splurge on
an iPhone. Which has convinced me to make the big leap from Windows to
Mac next time I need a computer (unless this supposed open source
revolution happens sometime between now and then - which I don't put
out of the realm of possibility).
What I really want is a way to remotely access (and download, if not
stream) my entire music collection from my phone. I know eMusic and
others tried out this "digital locker" concept a few years back, but
why has no one picked this back up? I guess it's more likely that some
kind of all-music-ever-recorded-is-freely-available-on-the-internets
solution will show up first. I guess we're already there is some ways.
On the topic of open source, have y'all seen this? http://ardour.org/
Open source DAW, supposedly comparable to Nuendo, ProTools, et al. I
PayPal-ed him some bucks. How cool that would be. I would love to run
my studio on Linux using an open source DAW.
