Klipspringer:jevvv:geekiegeek: Do people still buy shiny disks with media on them? :-)
Yup- at the rate I buy them it's still cheaper than all I can eat data on my broadband ;)
I have recently started purchasing a few CD's again to add to my nearly 20year collection (some all time favorites, that I have never ever bought before).
On ebay CD's can be fairly cheap, and I can get great CD's delivered for sometimes as little as $8 - $10. And I get the shiny disk to keep. Far cheaper than buying the digital copy from itunes or on google play.
I digitize all my CD's and upload them to google play for playing in the car and on my android phone etc ...
But. Nothing beats playing the real thing on my CD player at home. I have my entire CD collection right next to my CD player.
On that note. I'm keen to start investing in some vinyl too. Maybe I'm just old school.
I use Flac and a logitech Squeezebox to achieve the same "lossless" quality but still no shiny disks. I have invested in a fair amount of Vinyl recently but that's a whole other topic :-)
