Comment: FLAC rips from a CD? (Score 1) 329

by ryanmt (#46999537) Attached to: Your Old CD Collection Is Dying
Is it really worth sourcing your old CD? Even as a disliker of Apple, I hear that their little utility which matches your library up with theirs, then allows you to download higher bit rate versions is a gem. It is a nominal fee, but you can get much higher quality than that old CD had anyway. CDs aren't exactly a gold standard in audio quality here!

+ - Skydiver catches meteorite on video->

Submitted by vidarlo
vidarlo (134906) writes "A Norwegian skydiver, Anders Helstrup, caught a falling meteorite on video. This is the first reported instance in the world of his happening, and the rock fell close to the skydiver. NRK writes:

Although Helstrup is still not completely convinced that it was indeed a meteorite that flew past him, the experts are in no doubt.

“It can’t be anything else. The shape is typical of meteorites – a fresh fracture surface on one side, while the other side is rounded,” said geologist Hans Amundsen.

The video in the article shows the metorite. It's in the dark flight phase, with low velocity."
