My mobile digital lifestyle

Have broadband, mp3s, and iPods killed the mix tape? Or saved it? I don’t really have much of an opinion, to tell you the truth. I enjoyed “High Fidelity” as much as the next guy, and I like the idea of a romantic set of rules that define the perfect mix tape, but the last mix tape I made—er, CD that I burned—was a couple of years ago, and I’m pretty sure that its three covers of “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right” (favorite version: Mike Ness) violate all sorts of mix tape conventions.
