Apollo 4 on column of fire

Audio no more

I got a new DVD/CD drive to put in Kristy’s computer, and the audio outputs (at the back of the drive) now are labeled ‘Reserved’. They don’t bother with that anymore. It doesn’t have any headphone jack, either, which is good, if it’s got no audio circuitry.

One thing this implies is that there isn’t a lot of demand for ‘unrippable’ CDs. No one ought to have bothered trying, and the same goes for all other schemes of that sort.
