Two obsolete audio formats in one... the VinylDisc
"The VinylDisc is a combination audio CD and special record. It consists of two attached layers. The silver layer contains digital audio information, while the black upper layer can be played on every record player."

    If only I could play it on my 8-track.

    DAMMIT -- now I feel lame for having my CD pressed on a CD that only *looks* like a record on top:

    And all five of my fans will sue me when they break their turntables trying to play the fake grooves.

    seems like one of those things that might look better on paper
    but at least it looks good

    Since when is the audio CD obsolete? Sure, MP3 players are more prominent, but CDs still make up the majority of album sales.

    • muftak says:

      Audio CDs are obsolete for anyone that has a computer, an internet connection, and an mp3 player.

      • stolzenberg says:

        Yeah. I totally ignored the fact that when I bought my mp3 player, I imported all of my CDs to it.

    Ah, finally a good use for a Mister Disc.

    Groovy, man.

      This would be the real deal with a laserdisc on one side and phonograph on the other.

    OK, so we actually press vinyl that ships with our software to let users play back their MP3s. So to me, and I am willing to admit I could be in a minority here, that is the coolest thing ever.

    Just me then? Ah. OK.
