Book Cover MP3 Complete
MP3 is a file format that compresses audio for storage on a computer. Each MB of data in an .mp3 file equals one minute of music at almost CD quality or several minutes for spoken word/audiobooks. Because the files are small, they can be easily distributed via the Internet or on CDs. MP3 files can be played from PCs, Palm computers, and dedicated players. This text provides information on how to get the most out of rippers, players, and audio editors. It also covers recording and distributing your own music online and troubleshooting.

She argues for reforms that reflect the way people actually behave in their daily digital interactions.
