London, Feb 1 (ANI): Legendary singer Neil Young has claimed that late Apple's visionary-co-founder Steve Jobs, who was credited with delivering the iPod, preferred listening to vinyl records rather than modern gadgets.
The rocker, speaking at a technology conference, said Jobs preferred vinyl records' sound compared to the iPod's digitally-compressed files.
"Steve Jobs was a pioneer of digital music. His legacy is tremendous. But when he went home, he listened to vinyl," The Daily Mail quoted Young, as saying.
Young, 66, said he had spoken to Jobs about creating a format that allowed the music to stay truer to its original form, rather than being compressed.hile modern formats, like MP3, are convenient, they do not represent the original sound of the music, Young said.
While Young admitted there was no practical plan in place to develop the format, he said Jobs was keen to get involved before he died in October from pancreatic cancer.
"I talked to Steve about it. We were working on it," the paper quoted him, as saying.
"You've got to believe if he lived long enough he would eventually try to do what I'm trying to do," he added.
Jobs, who launched the first iPod in 2001, was a music collector, particularly enjoying the sounds of the sixties.
Walter Isaacson explained in his biography that Jobs once collected concert records by Bob Dylan, particularly from his electric period in 1965 and 1966.
According to Isaacson, Jobs' iPod also had songs from seven Beatles albums and six Rolling Stones albums. (ANI)
