He created the first enhanced CDs in the 90s, the first DVD-Videos released in the U.S., the first web-connected DVD, the first DVD-Audio title, the first music Blu-ray disc and the first 3D Music Album. Additionally, he launched the first High Definition Music Download site in 2007 called iTrax.com.

    I really don’t think downloads are dead. I listen to a lot of music where streaming is unavailable (like at work, they block it). Plus I don’t really like any of the streaming services. The ones I have tried do not give me enough control. Pandora insists on inserting music they are pushing into my station even after I have given the artist a thumbs down.

    I’ll bet the total number of hours of music playback in homes and cars from non-streaming devices makes YouTube look like a drop in the bucket.

      I don’t think they’re actually dead…but there is a dramatic shift away from downloads.
