When I checked my mails this morning, one of the usual newsletters from Kickstarter about their latest campaigns cought my attention. Neil Young had just launched his campaign about his new portable music player Pono. I had heard about it a few days ago and fired up the web page to give it a closer look. I looked at the images, read some of the text about the acclaimed sound quality and thought to myself: no one is going to hear the difference anyway, so what the heck does the world need another bulky MP3-player for?
Turns out I was wrong, really wrong. But not the way you might think I was.
