"you get my gist tho, AAC is still the better choice for the amount of space you want to take up."
Yeah, I just hope they get the kinks out of it. Right now there are a plenty of "problem samples" which trip up AAC I think.
"But, isn't apple the only company that has the rite to call thier encoding AAC?"
Nope. AAC stands for "Advanced Audio Coding". I think it was coined by MPEG. By the way, there's also AVC, which stands for Advanced Video Coding, and includes H.264 among other methods.
"Btw, wow where did u get all this stuff?"
Here and there. I guess you could call me an MP3 hobbyist. I visit some MP3-related forums (including this one), I poke around manufacturers' sites, online stores review sites, etc.
"That's creeping me out how much u focus on this stuff. Do u work with mp3 players for a living?"
Nah, but I've got a degree in Electronics and if I don't find some good work soon I might seriously do that.
You got me thinking, what is with my near-obsession with MP3?... Well I guess it started with Napster and the allure of getting any song I wanted without having to pay for it. Eventually I could tell the difference between most of the MP3's out there at the time and the CD's, so I set out to find the best way to make my own MP3's. I guess it just kinda snowballed from there. I just can't seem to stop wanting to pick up, use and share more information.
