    Audio files come in a number of different formats. Some are lossy, such as AAC and MP3; they save space compared to the original files, but some of the original data is lost during compression. Some formats are lossless, such as Apple Lossless, FLAC, and SHN; these files can be converted back to their original form without the loss of a single bit. Finally, some are uncompressed, such as WAV and AIFF; they represent the exact data from a CD or a master.

  • News: Eye-Fi connects to iPhone, gets more useful

    I've been using the Eye-Fi series of Wi-Fi-enabled memory cards for a couple of years now. But I have to admit, they've always been cooler on paper than in practice. Yes, they let your camera connect to a Wi-Fi network and upload photos to photo-sharing services and even back to your Mac, and there's some Wi-Fi-based geotagging capability. But camera interfaces just aren't rich enough to give users control over the Eye-Fi's features out in the field, and most of the places I take pictures don't have Wi-Fi. Without a Wi-Fi connection, there's no way to send back the pictures and the geotagging feature won't work, either.
