Neil Young and Steve Jobs Were Working on a New & Improved iPod
Neil Young is notorious for his distaste of digital music. He believes MP3s, and even CDs, degrade the quality of music they produce in the studio.
Then why on earth would Neil work with Steve Jobs on making a new iPod, the reigning king (sorry, Zune) of compressed music?
“Steve Jobs was a pioneer of digital music, but when he went home he listened to vinyl,” Young said during an interview at the D: Dive Into Media technology conference.
Apparently the two innovators in their respective fields were working on a new iPod that would playback high-resolution audio and even download content while your where tucked away under the covers, catching some zZz’s.
“I have to believe if [Jobs] lived long enough he would have tried to do what I’m trying to do.”
