THE REVELATION: The late Steve Jobs didn’t use his iPod and its digitally compressed files at home. Instead, he used vinyl records, a physical format well-known to have better sound.
THE SOURCE: Legendary rocker Neil Young made that known at a tech conference Tuesday.
NEW FORMATS: Young says he spoke with Jobs about creating a format that has 20 times the fidelity of files in the most current digital formats. Although Young didn’t have a practical plan for developing such a format, he says Jobs was on board with the idea before he died from cancer in October.
