Lifetime listening (Oct 4 2014) ------------------------------------------------- They say that a CD should provide a lifetime's listening enjoyment if you handle it properly, but it turns out that even a scratch-free CD will degrade over time because the data layer was often made of cheap material. And even though some CDs had a Gold layer for the data layer, the laminate used for the CD still can degrade. This is not a problem if you plan on dying young, like all of your rockstar heroes. Or if you just buy one hit wonders and crappy music that you never want to hear when you're fifty or sixty. ------------------------------------------------- © 2005-2018 Laurence Simon
