  • I think the whole area of wireless streaming has been pretty well ignored in this article. People will want to have access to their music from a number of different devices (home stereo system, car radio, phone etc). They will not want to have multiple copies of their files on different devices. It makes sense to store all of your music in a central repository, with the ability to stream it to whatever device you happen to be currently using. This repository could be your own server or, more interestingly, hosted by a music distributor which would allow you to manage your collection and purchase new music. Of course there is no reason to have a boundary between music and video, you could manage your video collection too. The bitrate could be dynamically set, again depending on the circumstances. So if you are at home, listening on your state of the art home music centre, you get SACD quality bitrates. If you are on the train with your mobile you get a lower bitrate. Wireless technologies like 3G and its successors will facilitate this flexibility. Discussions about 60gb players vs 100gb vs 1000gb players would become irrelevant in the above scenario. davej
