I lightly tap the faithful touch pad as the pointer comes across the playlist icon on the screen. The data starts to convert to music as the pulsating stream of electrons causes the speakers to vibrate the air into what my personal operating system has labeled music. I find it interesting that my brain converts these sounds back into electrons. It seems there is a lot of energy expended to get the data stream from my device into my brain. If I were to win the lottery I would consider getting the hearing implants with the wires under the skull. Some ECG leads implanted could be useful also but my budget can barely afford to dream of such things. I keep a watch on several emerging technology markets for such things but the affordability and availability seem to always be far out of my reach.
