re: 4 Things Developers Take for Granted That Used to Be Really Hard VIEW POST


Bad me, replying to myself ...

I just saw Google Tone in the Chrome Web Store. It's like the old cliche 'everything old is new again'.

I mentioned how saving software on a cassette tape ended up saving data that a tape player translated into sound above. Theoretically, with the right equipment and software, you'd be able to translate the sound back into the original code. I'm guessing Google Tone works on that principle, but plays URLs instead of Fortran, like my old cassette tapes did.

Sorry all, I couldn't help myself and had to share that.
