Time was when you needed a computer to handle your music needs, using a Rube Goldberg process on a tower.

I remember when it took reels of tape to record a few minutes of music.   Yes!!

The old tech was incredibly duplicative.   It needed to be cut down to size without losing quality.

It was a cumbersome process. You needed to digitize your old music and rip your CDs and store the files somewhere, such as on a unreliable external drive.   

No more.

All it takes is a tablet or even smartphone.

Now, all you need to do is to go to Spotify or Amazon with Prime, and search for what you want. A lot of it will be free or ridiculously cheap.

You can also send music directly into your own safe library in the cloud for access anywhere you are, such as with headset or Bluetooth.Best of all, you can listen in your arm chair as opposed to that bulky, balky, tower.
