    Your response would have been reasonable(ish) had they announced it randomly, however it was extremely assholish because stating that they don’t have a smartphone is actually relevant to the topic. You’re basically nitpicking because they are participating in the conversation.

  • derpentine

    If you don’t have a smartphone and don’t tell anybody about it good on you. I’m talking about the people without smartphones who might as well start Crossfit because they can’t shut the fuck up about it

  • Skye Hsu

    You are partially right on this. It all depends on the master recording. How the tracks are mastered. Granted, tracks are all recorded either on tape or digitally, and then mastered on several mediums. So yea, no one said one is better than the other. However, I’d say that digitals are easier and more consistent to reproduced, whereas vinyls have more of a “sophiscated” way to ensure a good sound reproduction, like needles, cleanliness of the stylus, balancing of the stylus pressure, cleanliness of the vinyl (not to mention overplayed vinyl also can have quality loss) etc. I have a vestax vinyl cutter myself, mainly to cut my own battle tracks for battle use, but quality wise…. meh. It’s because its a copy! :D~

  • niki

    people seems to forget that smartphone is just a *tool*, like anything else: it can be used for either negative, OR positive things.
    so whether ‘bad’ or ‘good’, it all really depends on the *human/person* using it!
    I seriously can’t believe of how ‘spoiled’ actually many of the comments here REJECTING actually a very helpful thing called: TECHNOLOGY!

    Actually you are and idiot. Not once did I ever say that vinyl sounded bad just that the vinly from its original inception to today is completely different and is really only 30-50% analog because being remastered from digital to analog loses quality.

  • Bret

    That guy was kinda rude too, the girl though she was busy with her phone still spoke/talked to him but he completely ignored her. He obviously think he wasn’t a tech junkie when he was one as well..both are at fault..less is more.

    I guess, but the loss is less, and it’s getting better. and I will also concede that annoying people buy vinyl, but it’s not transferable, people who buy vinyl don’t necessarily have to be annoying.

  • Anthony De Lamarter

    True, but most vinlys now a days are digital remastered into analog. Even remastered you lose sound. Not to mention almost all music IS digital because the songs can be made into small files so you can compress.

  • Theresa Markham

    for the record, not all audio is recorded in digital. plenty of musicians purposely record to master tapes with the intention of releasing vinyl. people who understand what it is that makes vinyl special do understand what to look for.

    um… pretty sure not owning a TV has nothing to do with being on a high horse… maybe some people honestly just DONT WATCH TV. And I don’t own a smartphone either… but I don’t rag on people who do. I just don’t feel the need for it since I have a computer, and I never feel the incessant need to look something up or talk to others when I’m out with my own friends… If you do, that’s your prerogative. But why the attacking remark? Your own sense of shame? I’m not quite sure, but it was pretty ignorant on your part.

  • Tony Mancini

    I wasn’t born in the 90′s, and I am annoyed by hipsters as much as the rest of you, but collecting vinyl does not make you a hipster. A lot of people in the world grew up where record players were the standard music player in homes, and we find a comfort in the surface noise and slight imperfections of vinyl that no other audio format can provide. Being different doesn’t make you a hipster; flaunting you are different for no reason does.

  • Jess

    rude adjective ˈrüd
    : not having or showing concern or respect for the rights and feelings of other people : not polite

    – this means at home, in public, virtually, physically, verbally or through implication.

  • Anthony De Lamarter

    I hipster is basically anyone that is born years before something and then decides that it was part of their life ie kids with records and Kids born in the 90′s with stupid nes and snes shirts. And for the record boys and girls, anything produced after digital became standard it is not only stupid to buy on vinly but pointless.

  • Michael Jason Stokes

    I haven’t missed the point whatsoever. Some people delve into technology and social media in public on smartphones ignoring friends and scenery around them. Some people delve into forums and video games at home at ignore family or friends that may want to spend time with them (at home or by going out) The point is tech is part of our daily lives now, and walking that line between interaction with friends in a virtual environment vs interaction with friends in the real world can be tough to walk sometimes. It’s just too easy to say that everyone else is wrong and rude and everything we do is OK. The world is changing. I can’t speak to my friends from Morocco or Japan or Ecuador everyday because I cant go hang out with them all the time. But I can share my life with them online and see theirs also. As long as you balance that well with other activities it’s not as rude as much as embracing all the facets of our modern world.

  • Ringo Juna

    I see you’ve missed the point. I’m on my home computer right now. When I use Facebook or Twitter, it’s on my home computer. When I play Candy Crush, it’s on my home computer. When I go out, I don’t do any of those things.

    The main thrust of the story is the inability by some to disconnect.

  • Ringo Juna

    I’m with you on this. I’ve had “friends” who did this kind of shit all the damn time, so i’d go out of my way to point out how big of a dick they were being. I don’t own a smartphone, don’t have the need for one. If I go out, I usually turn my phone off, and that’s only if I bothered to bring it with me.

  • MrWednesday

  • Jay Karia

    The stupidity of social media on phones. All friends sitting together for a good time and all looking into their smartphones and no-one talking, the only guy left is the one without a smart phone who wonders what is the purpose of meeting in the first place? When everyone has their heads and attention immersed in their idiot phones. He is disgusted and annoyed on the stupidity of it all. This is our current situation in our society whether you agree or not.
