Compact Disc Founder Has Died
The man we have to thank for the compact disc, is dead.
Former Sony chairman NORIO OHGA died Saturday of multiple organ failure at age 81. He was the head honcho at Sony from 1982 to 1995. He insisted that the compact disc be 4.8-inches in diameter, and that it could hold 75-minutes of music because that’s the length of BEETHOVEN’s 9th Symphony. Mr. Ohga predicted that CDs would eventually outsell LPs and cassettes. He was right. Do you still buy cds? Or are you downloading to your mp3 player? Click on the picture to get the whole story.
