Submission + - Going Digital Means Missing Music (

arlanTLDR writes: The Seattle PI is running a story about how the MP3 format is a sign of a musical apocalypse. Apparently many top music producers are "howling" over the fact that files in a compressed format contain "less than 10 percent of the original music on the CDs".

athloi writes: "Even our high-end hardware struggled to keep up in some cases, and the highest resolution we tested was 2.3 megapixels. Pushing the resolution up to 4 MP (with 30" display resolutions of 2560x1600) brings all of our cards to their knees.
