Streaming music these days, your thoughts?

Postby Kazuo » Fri Jun 26, 2015 11:39 am

So with all this huff 'n puff regarding spotify and Apple getting into internet radio, I was thinking about how I personally experience my music collection.

I've long since abandoned physical media using Windows Media Player to rip all my albums into MP3's. Since then I also moved everything to Google Music where you upload everything and stream it back to yourself. This way I don't have to have a whole HDD hooked up for music and have access to my library from my phone.

How do you jam out? Do you use radio stations like Spotify? Are you stuck in the past with your vinyls?

MP3s still. Streaming music like that is a weird area in Canadian copyright laws. We only just got Spotify around march of this year, maybe, I forget exactly when at the moment. I don't think we have Google music upload service yet either.

That is very interesting! I didn't take into account that various countries have wildly different copyright laws and regulations. It is still cool that you've switched to fully digital with you MP3 collection. I'm curious to meet the person that still juggles CD's, with the exception of having an old audio deck in the car.

I primarily use itunes, ripped my cds ages ago and primarily just digitally buy anything new - it all fits on my ipod (I have an ipod classic so its actually a hard drive with decent storage at 80 gb), though I do put some of my favorites on my droid phone onto a 32 gb micro sd card - and I do use iheartradio in a pinch.
