    That’s why they are switching over to ipod technology now…no disk….

    I’ve never had a CD skip. Come to a halt and refuse to play, yes, but skipping no.

    I never had a printed book skip, but I have had books with pages torn, dog eared, and spotted on. Other books had wrinkled pages from exposure to water, and mold growing on them (in a flood). And finally, some had pages turning yellow from sun overexposure. We get what we pay for.

    I’ve had books with all these damages… but they were all still readable. I’ll take that over a damaged digital file (the data may all be there, but there’s no way you’ll ever access it) any day.

    @Varnes and a A LOT of hassle. I have about had it with that sells you files that can only be open in iTunes. After the newest upgrade, you cannot simply add a new book to the ipod, you need to ’synchronize everything, and it is ridiculous.

    @gmforde – can’t read them paper books on long drives. That whole “keep your eyes on the road” thing.

    Digital music does not have to be lower quality, necessarily, than CDs. The mp3 format does lose some quality in exchange for smaller file size, but there are lossless compression formats as well, or noncompressed formats. Same quality as a CD, but you fit less songs on your ipod.

    I’ve seen printed books skip. Admittedly, it requires printer error (or editor or author error), rather than abuse of an originally-good copy.

    Years ago, Sidney Harris did a laugh-out-loud cartoon of “Hemingway’s Dog Meets Faulkner’s Dog.”
    Hemingway’s dog: Arf and arf. A nice woof. Some bows and some wows. Bow wow. A clean woof.
    Faulkner’s dog: Woofed woofingly (yet arfing arfarfarf woofs bowwowing) wooves, wowwing too, woofation, arfs, not only bow (wow) but bowing wow wooving.
    : ) One of my favorites of all time.

    Is a digital book burning done with magnets?

    You beat me to the punch. I’ll add that even lossy (i.e., compressed) formats can be tuned to various levels of fidelity, so that you retain sufficient information to eliminate the signal source from the quality equation. If you are listening to music using ear buds, then quality of signal is usually not an issue, it’s the delivery device that’s the problem.

    CDs can skip, but only if you’re in your car and hit a rough patch on the road. I had one that I thought was damaged, skipped in the same spot every day (I tend to listen to the same one several days in a row-not inmy car that long). Then, I was outon a different road and it didn’t skip. Suddenly realized I was on the exact same portion of highway everytime that exact section skipped.

    I like my digital books. I have the same books on four different devices including my main PC where I can read them and store them for backup. I’ve had way too many books eaten by one of my dogs. Pages missing. Pages stuck together. They’re a complete and utter mess. And they take up LOTS of room. I still have one room with nothing but books in them. And now, I can store every single one of those, and more!!, on one small, 8 oz device. That’s lighter than the paperback books I read. I lose the device? Yes, I’m out the money for the device, but I still have every single one of those books at my disposal. My computer crashes? Backed up on 3 other devices. Again, no loss. I even have books from older no longer function devices, that I’ve updated for my new ones. Seriously, you bunch sound like 8 track tape fanatics. Get over it.

    Someday I’ve got to find out for myself about this Faulkner. My school never touched on anything like that for its sports centered focus.
