Information about technology and its use


Software used; in order to hear audio on your computer, weather streaming or from files, you'll need audio player software; there are many options, although some players are associated with proprietary formats (e.g., Apple's QuickTime with iTunes, RealAudio with the Real Player); many audio players have been expanded in scope and purpose to include a wide range of tasks, including selling music, managing all your music in libraries, and enabling you to create audio disks; with some effort, however, you can still get some players to simply play audio files--the best thing to do is turn off as many features of the players as possible
