The article discusses digital recording technology. We are now in a time when many aspects of digital audio are "optimized and automatic"; they pretty much do their job, and they come with a four-page booklet composed entirely of large-mouthed Japanese children with giant heads warning of the dangers of operating said gear in the rain or under a moving truck. In all fairness, these little booklets do show more, mostly that one should not really operate the gear on top of a steam radiator during a lightning storm.
