Happy 25th Birthday to Compact Discs! August 20, 2007

Posted by stvchang in Uncategorized.

To be fair, its a belated birthday wish to our shiny friends, the Compact Discs (CDs).

It was 25 years ago, on 17th August 1982, that the first CD rolled off the production line. The CDs eventually freed humankind from flipping their cassettes (although auto-reverse cassette players were available) and allowed us to skip directed to the songs we want to listen to almost immediately. The CD also introduced almost perfect audio quality and ushered in the era of digital of music, allowing us to easily copy music via these shiny discs.

With over 200 billion of these CDs being sold worldwide, we salute you, Compact Discs.
