    Best Buy to stop selling Music CDs

    No I'm not spamming some story, just heard this a little while ago. Siting the large scale usage of services such as Itunes, Best Buy has decided to stop selling compact discs this summer.

    As someone who is stuck on the wrong side of the digital divide, and actually buys cds from Best Buy (they are 6-10 dollars cheaper there, and most stores, like Walmart and Target don't sell true rock cds), I'm rather irritated by this, but here is the kicker.....

    They are gonna continue to sell Vinyl Records..... WT@#$!!!!!
    "What do you mean it's OUT OF STOCK/BACK-ORDERED!?!?!"

    If Newtypes can predict the future, and feel their opponents intentions, how come none of them were ever able to dodge the Bright Slap?

    But vinyl is SOOOO.. retro! You can't be a good Hippster if you don't have vinyl. Get with the times the new "in" thing it is to have obsolete technology. Next year Chevy and Ford are both coming out with an all new buggy! It will even have fringe around the top! Get your horse ready now they will sell out fast. They will have a hard top and a soft top version, so hurry in and pre-order yours today! And I heard that the newest Iphone will only work when you plug a cord into a phone jack on a wall, and it will have a rotary dial to enter the numbers into! So much fun!!

    This sucks. I'm with you Wolf. I like owning hard copies over digital. Sadly that's the way society is progressing and eventually the same thing will happen to videogames and movies.

    I like the hard copy as well. a digital copy can get corrupted or lost like say when your Hard drive kicks the bucket... Luckily I had everything backed up on an external memory stick, but still so easily lost. Plus with the hard copy you get the booklet and cover art to the album. Yes you can get a "digital" version of the cover art, but it is just not the same as holding it in your hand. Just like a book I would rather hold a book verses a tablet reader.
