I Want My Mp3 I Want My MP3 Music is something that can be listened to almost anywhere due to modern technology. When it comes to listening to music while sitting at a computer, controversy arises.

- Introduction - 1,244 words
INTRODUCTION Two years ago, MP3 was just another audio compression format. Today, it's a Net phenomenon that's at the center of an enormous controversy. That's because MP3 makes it possible for people with an Internet connection to bypass record stores (and cashiers) and download CD-quality music by their favorite artists--for free. MP3 is great for music lovers and cheapskates, who can download funky tunes to their hearts' content without spending a dime; however, it's a nightmare for musicians and record companies, who can only watch helplessly as their profits drop into a digital black hole. DEFINITION MP3 is short for MPEG-1 Layer 3 (Moving Pictures Expert Group), a format for storing di ...

- Mp And The Music Industry - 1,254 words
Mp3 And The Music Industry Imagine a world where you did not go to the music store and buy a CD. You would have $15 extra in your pocket every time. Now you ask 'why would I not go out and buy CD's? I like to hear groups I like'. The answer is simple. There is something new out there in the world that makes it possible for you to never buy a CD again. There is only one catch: it's illegal. Illegal in the sense that you are committing copyright infringement every time you participate in this new format. Mp3 is this file format. Ever since CD drives were put into computers, people have recorded songs into their computers to listen to while they worked. The quality was decent to horrible, depen ...

- What Hdtv Is - 1,360 words
What HDTV Is Digital describes electronic technology that generates, stores, and processes data in terms of two states: positive and non-positive. Positive is expressed or represented by the number 1 and non-positive by the number 0 (Lasica). Data that is transmitted or stored with digital technology is expressed as a string of 0's and 1's. Each of these digits is referred too as a bit (and a string of bits that a computer can address individually as a group is a byte).
