Access to any song or artist is at the tip of our fingers and we can inform our friends on our interests and likes by sending a link. But with records, we shared the experience. We owned said album and we lent it to a friend to also enjoy; or other times, we would listen to the album together!

It's at this time of the year that pundits, tastemakers and futurists start making fantastical predictions about what we will expect in 2013.

There is No iPod Big Enough for the Avid Vinyl Collector

As a record collector, music has always been about quantity over quality, about how much music I can consume before I die. When iPods were new, we as music fans were at the precipice of something big. We were finally being catered to! Of course, just when we were gonna get that 500 GB iPod, Apple pulled the plug on music storage capacity in favour of Angry Birds, FaceTime and texting. So I'd like to gently propose a terabyte iPod. That's right -- a thousand gigabytes of free space meant only to keep 10,000+ records.
