So let me get this straight Dobly Digital and DTS are not compatible with portable devices but AAC is? I don’t buy that.

Shame on CD Freaks for putting spin in their titles. AAC is NOT an Apple format, it was just the format that Apple choose to go with. And why, because it was the best mature format at the time (MP3Pro is a joke and Ogg Vorbis wasn’t finished at the time). Plus AAC is the only codec (well maybe WMA is too) certified as a Digital Dolby compatible format as AAC supports true 5.1 (or was it 6.1) audio. PS: please keep the spin out of CDFreaks, I was very dissapointed to see this article title as it spreads ignorance.

The original title actually came directly from the source news at ‘The Register’ and not us (See the news source here) I changed the label to try and suggest a better meaning.
