Technology is ever entwined with the way we listen to music. There have been vinyl records (78 rpm to 45 rpm to 33 1/3 rpm), 8-track, radio, cassette, CD, digital downloads and streaming. Despite the boom in streaming music with Pandora, Rdio, Spotify and now iTunes Radio, there’s also been a resurgence for vinyl records, with worldwide sales of $177 million last year — the highest number in 16 years. So how do you like to listen to music? On satellite radio in the car? Digital downloads on your iPod or Android phone? Streaming? Or good old-fashioned vinyl?
