Submission + - Going Digital Means Missing Music (nwsource.com)

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". Is this just sensatiolist FUD, or is there something to the assertion that listening to an MP3 is like hearing music "through a screen door"?

Submission + - DirectX10 "wow" limited by current hardwar (anandtech.com)

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. In short, we really need to see faster hardware before developers can start doing more impressive things with DirectX 10.
