Analog vs. Digital Signals

Examples of analog technology:
Examples of digital technology:
Differences between analog and digital signals:
The second difference between the two is that Analog signals have waves that are smooth and continuous, while digital signals have waves that are steps and squares.
The last/there'd difference is that the quality of analog signals goes down over time, whereas digital signals are more reliable.
Differences between analog and digital technologies:
3 reasons why one (analog or digital) would be preferred over the other:
The second reasoning is that Analog has better quality because it's recorded straight from the source you heard it from. Digital is stored and the data has been translated from its original source to a binary code which is non-continuous (has gaps).
The third reasoning is that Some analog technology items cost very little compared with digital items. For example, an iphone costs far more than a conventional analog phone (wired home phone).
