Victor's plan to turn CDs into high resolution threatens the entire HD music industry

Interesting or rather worrying news out of Japan that Victor Entertainment, the music division of JVC has developed a way to convert CD-quality recordings so they can be sold as HD music.

[...] 2D>3D conversions create something that upsampled CDs lack: a noticeable difference!

Though too bad we let marketers to shape our language like that, in this case - "2D" films already contain most of the cues we humans use for depth perception. Also, there are more "3D" techniques than stereography - a technique which, the way it must be used with films, is quite limited and even does some cues more wrong, notably with very unnatural parallax.
(hopefully I'll live to see proper holographic video displays - they should feel kinda like a window or mirror)

Even worse, it threatens to undermine the hi-res music concept, and bring the entire house of cards tumbling down before it has a chance to establish itself as a viable business model.
I thought the iPod had already done that? A decade ago?

A bit less than a decade perhaps - a decade ago, it hardly registered: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ipod_sales_per_quarter.svg

Perhaps more telling, more illustrative of large scale habits & rejection of hi-res music concept, was the rise of p2p music sharing a decade+ ago - even if at first for playback from computers and/or burned to Red Book CD-Rs (and probably even still recorded to cassettes, at least for portable use), only later consumed often also from many different DAPs and... mobile phones (I remember some article, IIRC from ~2007, about how ~20% of European mobile subscribers uses their handsets for music listening - that alone already meant more people than all iPods ever produced).
