From Phonographs to Portable Devices

Music is constantly being revolutionized, and has been since it was first created. For example, think about how common peoples had to listen to music in the early 19th century. They had to either attend a live show, or start up a scratchy old record on a bulky phonograph. but since our society has a constant hunger for change, and simplicity, live performances are now not nearly as popular, record players are definitely outdated, and handheld electronic devices are the new way to enjoy your favorite song.

Perchance, music downloading apps will simply be the only possible way to listen to music. But whatever updates may happen in the musical world, we know that some form of technology will have to do with it. Here's a video giving you some information about the next generation of music.
