Thanks for posting this..I missed it. Very entertaining.

I fear it was over the heads of 99.99999% of viewers....and Dave.

And importantly, he does a decent job articulating it. Wow, a portable player, too that looks neat and doesn't try to be super-thin/small/etc.

I can now indeed see him discussing this sort of thing with Jobs, Jobs being interested on some level, and then later (now) Cook telling Young, "WHAT?"

"You get as close as digital can get to that analog."

God Bless Neil Young

Yeh, its obvious Neil gets it, is his idea.

Hey, at least Americana RAWKS.

There is clearly a need. 

Now getting joe average to understand and care is a whole nother matter.
