I still own all the LPs and cassettes that I`ve ever bought (and have
a turntable and cassette deck to play them on) but my downloaded music

keep up with the future digital storage formats. Next stage is solid
state as opposed to hard drive so it`ll be OK as long as I can keep on
top of it all and transfer all my digital stuff to the latest
technology. I`m speculating that I may eventually lose some of my
digital tracks but I`m always going to be able to play my LPs.
I'm wondering what the next "amazing new format" for recorded music is
going to be.
Something with no moving parts obviously.
That's been here for years. Only iPod Classics still have hard
drives. The Touch, Nano and Shuffle models (not to mention the
iPhones and iPads) don't have any moving parts.
The Next Big Thing is cloud storage - like iCloud, Amazon's Cloud
Drive or Google's Cloud Connect. Your music (or other data) is stored
on some server in "the Cloud" and is available to all of your various
devices automagically whenever you want. Buy it once from the iTunes
store on your iPhone when you're in New York and it automatically
shows up on your iPad and your home computer in Minneapolis. And it's
backed up and safe from crashes.
This stuff is still in its infancy and there will be all sorts of
improvements to how it works, but it's the way of the future.
Being an old fart, I was thinking of something for which you can walk
into a shop and plonk money down and walk out with something in your
I don't know why people think vinyl is dead or that kids don't buy it
any more, this simply isn't the case :
It might not be dead but 250k units isn't much of a dent in the market.
It's more of a novelty than an industry.
