In Pictures: Vinyl records fight digital death

Vinyl record sales are actually up but heyday is obviously past

GZ Media located in the central area of the Czech Republic, has been in the vinyl record business for 61 years and says it is now the world's biggest vinyl record producer, working for industry giants like Sony Music and Universal Records. Vinyl sales continue to resist the threat posed to them by digital music. In fact Nielsen SoundScan says nearly 3 million vinyl LPs have been sold in the U.S. in 2013. While that number is less than 2% of any albums sold this year, the number is actually on the rise. Still, in the age of smartphones and iPods, they are a niche. A very cool niche. Here Reuters took a look at GZ Media.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
