    I buy CDs - for the audio quality. Downloaded music sounds like poo. Maybe, in the future we will be able to download uncompressed audio, but until then, I'll stick with CDs. Same goes for DVDs and Bluray. Downloaded movies and OnDemand can't touch TrueHD and DTS master.

    You're a really strange dude. Why laugh at that? If you already own the cd player and a whole collection of cds, then what's laughable about using them? I know how important it is to be cool and trendy and to spend money on things that you don't need, but come on.

    LET ME CLARIFY SOMETHING

    reading through TJ and SK mistook my meaning of "print media"
    I guess I should have called it 'pressed media' of 'optical media'
    my reference was digital media in disc form, which is in a way "printed"

    having said that, I feel there is still need for printed text
    I'd prefer a book to a Kindle

    buying CD's still ? me personally, not in years
    but I know people that still do, and some of them are still buying LP's

    Oh, I think discs will be around for a while. But I do think more and more people will buy music and movies as downloads as time goes on versus buying discs.

    But again, soon you'll be able to simply stream high definition media to whatever you prefer to view it on.
    And who wouldn't take that over buying plastic?

    One of the few reasons people still buy discs today is to support the artist. Not because they prefer the format. Some people do so because their vehicle has a cd player- but how much longer will that last? Not very.
    Already cars have music databases now where a library of mp3s can be stored, and opened by voice activation.

    A disc will never be voice activated. Discs are limited. Discs cost more to produce and more to buy. They'll vanish. It might be a slow death, but a certain one.
    Only old people will keep them going.

    High Def media is probably in the double digit GB range if you account for unaltered audio.
