Evil professors claim they can compress MP3s so much, you'll fit 20 million onto your iPod

clows-in-a-car.jpgHow many clowns can you fit in a car? I’m still not sure, but supposedly we’ll soon all be able to compress the shit out of our MP3s and get 20 million onto an iPod. Good luck finding 20 million songs you actually like…

If the evil anti-audiophilic professors at the University of Rochester manage to release their new compression technology without Arcam and Denon product managers hacking into their PCs and deleting the relevant witchcraft files.

They’re working on technology which will shrink MP3 file size down to a 1,000th of its size, so an 80GB iPod could hold 20 million tracks instead of the advertised 20,000. I suggest we all brandish our IXOS cables and go beat up those Rochester professors. This Friday good for all?

  • Umm… did you read the actual source article which, may I note, was posted on April 1st?

    It is basically describing Midi music with embedded synthesis, not re-encoding your mp3 files to 1000th the size.
