CD / CDROM

 

Since their introduction in the early 1980s, CDs - Compact Disks - have gradually replaced the older vinyl disks as a means of music storage. However, whilst the term 'CD' was adopted for CDs which store music, the term CD-ROM (CD Read Only Memory) was adopted by the computer word, despite using the same optical disks. Ironically, the term CDROM still persists despite the fact that CD read / writers have been available for years.
