The CD Turns 25 Today

acceleriter Compact Disc, dead at 25 (326 comments)

I just heard some sad news on talk radio - technological and musical innovation Compact Disc was found dead in its Hanover, Germany home this morning. The cause of death is rumored to be Digital Restrictions Management (DRM). There weren't any more details. I'm sure everyone in the Slashdot community will miss him - even if you didn't enjoy digital music, there's no denying its contributions to popular culture. Truly an American icon.
