I spent a good portion of last weekend introducing a dear friend in Paris to the wonders of owning an iPod touch. (For the uninitiated – if there should actually be any left out there – it’s a life altering experience. Get thee to the Apple store, tout de suite!) Back when we first met, cassette tapes and Sony Walkmans were the way of the world. Today we’re downloading and touch-screening (admittedly, not an official verb). This simple little infographic does an excellent job of illustrating just how much the way we get our music delivered has changed over the past 30 years, in under 30 seconds.
Thanks to Digital Music News for the Animated Gif! (It will keep looping; so if you missed the beginning, just wait for it to play through & It’ll start over again.)
