Dear Computer Lady,
I have been a subscriber to your newsletter and still find something useful and new to learn after all these years.
I have a question regarding decluttering:
We have decided that this year will be our year of decluttering; I want to rip our music CD collection and save them on our PC/Mac with backup to disc. The idea is to get rid of the 300 odd CD’s.
We have used the Mac and scanned several into iTunes; created playlists, sync’ed with iPods, iPhones, iPads. This has been fine, actually pretty good. But I have a concern that iTunes is too locked into Apple hardware (and recording format, AAC). What happens 10 years from now when we move away from Apple (or iTunes isn’t supported), and there are different preferred formats? Future-proof portability?
