its not the way it is saved & read, its how the information itself is saved
the abacus is recognized as digital, yet cassettes are seen as analog
one could make a vinyl that pulses in 1's & 0's and by "technicality" it would have to be recognized as digital
imho, i think calling a lot of stuff "digital" was really just marketing "hey, look at this new 'DIGITAL' technology! isn't it so futuristic? this ain't ya gramma's phonograph!"
