Rumors from la France point to a Samsung S5 firmware update that will enable FLAC playback. I know that a grand total of seven of you have so much as seen an S5, but I bring it up merely to point out that, you know, there are other portable players out there beyond the iPod family. And for some people, the lack of FLAC support—no, Apple lossless doesn’t cut it—makes the iPod an alotogether less attractive option.
As I twittered earlier, FLAC is so, so fine. What.cd is currently on FLAC freeleech; I should have more invites available later in the week, so one or two (I guess) lucky readers will get to join the party.
