fraunhofer IIS actually did a great deal of research and development when creating the MP3 algorithm though.  Unlike other codecs, which sought to squash the bitstream as hard as possible while still retaining some form of intelligibility (even if it did sound like it was recorded underwater in an aquarium), it was designed to cut out all the parts of the audio that humans were incapable of hearing.

A great deal of perceptual research was conducted to determine where that threshold was, and then create a codec that could eliminate that unnecessary data.


WMA on the other hand, took the same basic tactic that RealAudio did, which was to try to cram the audio into the tiniest bitstream possible, and audio artifacting be damned.

Note that Apple also uses their own weird audio format, not mp3.
well apple uses their own weird format for everything, so they can "justify" charging absurd prices for no good reason

My mild sad is they changed the name of the thread

For the first time in a long time, I managed to get caught out by a spambot (This one was on Reddit).

Unfortunately, it was one spamming for an NSFW game, my bedroom door wasn't properly closed, and my mum was upstairs. It's entirely possible she opened the door and closed it without me realising while I was trying to work out what I was looking at.

Nah it's better. "sad" and "mildly sad" was redundant. Upset has more potential.

Mildly upset, though. Thatís more foot-stomping-arms-crossed tantrum adjacent.

And my plan to gain more of Yoink's psychological profile by forcing him to start a blog progresses.

Are... are you saying I should make a full-blown Upset thread, in which I basically just gripe about the title change in this thread in every post? ??? 🤔

Skillet's latest album is incredibly mediocre. I guess they're entitled to try and shake it up, but it really doesn't play to their strengths and it's starting to seem like they've totally lost their edge.
