Discovering the excellent German band "Die Ärzte" only today - I have been living here ten years - after finding a live album on one of the mini discs I got second hand.

The Gadget We Miss: The Sony MiniDisc

Most gadgets don’t have a funeral. The closest they get is a small note on a web site saying that the manufacturer is no longer supporting it, or a final post in an obscure fan forum from a last, desperate fan. minidisc, music, syndicated, tech

Note to self: don't buy second hand Maxell Twinkle s. These are not made to withstand the test of time with a flimsy port cover and are made of very brittle plastic.

MiniDiscs that I haven't had issues with yet: Sony Neige, Emtec Maxima, Dark Blueish and Red Sony ones (I call these the BladeRunner themed ones)

So effective to be able to listen to and record my favorite music using . And it works completely _offline_ too.

Süpersong: Im Nin’alu by Ofra Haza

Found this song by Ofra Haza on a recently obtained second hand MiniDisc as radio recording and got it stuck on repeat! Powerful stuff.

Enjoying recording my music to and listening to the music on my Sony MZ-R500 from 2001. The original iPod was released in 2003. Who is still listening to music on their first iPod devices today?
