The same thing that happened to music in the ’90s, when it turned in to ones and zeros, is now happening to the music player. None of the apps I’m going to talk about today would exist if people had to make hardware in order to sell them, because they could end up costing hundreds of dollars, which nobody in their right mind would pay. Now that the music player is a digital app, it can do just about anything the mind can imagine. The apps I’m going to talk about today are pretty wacky, which is to prove a point: that we’re just now only scratching the surface of what is possible with consumer-facing music technology today, and it’s only going to get better and weirder from here.
