Take Your Music Open-Source With Ogg Vorbis – Wired How-To Wiki

Now with iTunes support, kinda. Going to have to look at Ogg again. Looks like it has grown up a bit since the last time I tried it out.

Music file compressed 1,000 times smaller than mp3

Music file compressed 1,000 times smaller than mp3
“This is essentially a human-scale system of reproducing music,” says Mark Bocko, professor of electrical and computer engineering and co-creator of the technology. “Humans can manipulate their tongue, breath, and fingers only so fast, so in theory we shouldn’t really have to measure the music many thousands of times a second like we do on a CD. As a result, I think we may have found the absolute least amount of data needed to reproduce a piece of music.”

This seems to be more of a MIDI type of process than an MP3 compression technique. It’s quite an interesting process but methinks that the writer/editor went for the sensational rather than factual reporting.

Challenge: figure out Amazon’s crazy-ass “proprietary” MP3 tagging system – Boing Boing

Instead of trying to figure it out, we need to not buy their product until they change their ways. Money talks, both in sales due to a smart merchant and in lost sales due to merchant stupidity. Sounds like Amazon is in the latter category yet once again. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

Awesome music! Love it! They have quite a few free downloads as well as a hell of a deal on grabbing all their music via download vs buying the individual albums which I intend to take advantage of as soon as I get some spare cash.
