Music industry negotiating over 24-bit downloads

For hi-fi fans, the most depressing aspect of the digital music revolution has been the reduction in sound quality. Just when we were hoping to get better-than-CD quality sound from disc formats such as Sony's Super Audio CD (SACD) or DVD-Audio, we were hit with the double whammy of low bit-rate MP3 files and, sometimes worse, the UK's low bit-rate DAB digital radio.

Celebrating 27 years of the Compact Disc: Does anyone really care?

Today is the 27th birthday of the Compact Disc, and I hate to say it, but I think this medium is getting a little old. Perhaps 27 years in CD time is actually like turning 87 in human time: it had a good go in the beginning, but then a newer medium came along, and now ol' CD is just around when you need it -- to tell you old stories, or to transfer files when you don't have a jump drive.

Mozilla Fennec browser released in pre-alpha form for Windows Mobile

One of the weakest features of Windows Mobile is the current web browser, Internet Explorer Mobile. There are several better alternatives such as the fantastic Opera Mobile 9.5 for Windows Mobile that is included on some devices as the default browser and the Skyfire proxy browser (I can watch with this browser). There has been talk for quite some time about Mozilla entering the Windows Mobile space and as reported by the Fennec browser is now available in very early pre-alpha form (aka milestone release) to try on HTC Touch Pro devices. Make sure you have a backup of your device and are willing to risk a hard reset before trying this software out as it is very early in the development cycle and not that stable.

Zune manual sync mode lets you control your content

I upgraded one of my Zunes to the latest 3.0 software and was very pleased to read the latest news that manual sync capability is now a part of the Zune desktop software. In the past I had issues connecting my Zune to my home and work PC and losing content. You can now manually control your content and if you connect your Zune to a PC with limited hard disk space this could actually be quite beneficial. You may now delete large movie files from your PC after getting it onto the Zune and then delete it from the PC drive while it remains on the Zune.
