MP3 has killed music

Gizmodo: "You know how most people are perfectly happy with Apple standard-issue earbuds, white plastic molded around a crappy audio experience? A Stanford professor's informal annual study shows that youngins like the "sizzle sounds" of MP3s." - No offense Apple, seriously, but the stuff on my iPod Touch sounds like complete caca, compared to CD, but I knew that going into it. It's really quite sad isn't it? We put up with garbage for the sake of convenience.

To be clear, the stuff I have on my Toshiba Gigabeat sounds bad as well. It's not just an Apple thing. It's the low-quality-for-the-sake-of-drive-space that's the problem.

This is why CD's are still necessary.
