Comment Some lossy sound better than other lossy. (Score 1) 749

Not saying that lossy is ever better than non-lossy, but with good "dithering", it can really make a big difference. Probably better for artists to provide their own mp3 (or whatever file type) than leaving it up to a vendor to do it. This Izotope video is pretty informative, despite being kind of an ad.

Comment Hangouts are cool (Score 1) 286

To be honest, I'm completely baffled by the google+ feed. It's very difficult to make "seen" things go away. Other than that, it's pretty cool. I've only been using it to attend a couple hangouts. Hangouts are really great, especially if you know ahead of time to comb your hair. It was a bit of a shocker to see my ugly mug on the list of attendees.
