Check out this article from Mashable. Why are people using DVDs or CDs? Well its beyond me. I havent bought a CD since around 1998 and have not bought a DVD since around 2005. Its all about hard drives, the cloud, and streaming. To me disks just take up space in my office or my house and I hate clutter. This is an interesting stat from the article that just boggles my mind: Consumers bought 193 million CDs in 2012 vs. 118 million digitally downloaded albums, according to Nielsen SoundScan. If you do still love these tangible items, get ready to say goodbye because not too long from now computers will not have them.
