I was at Best Buy the other day to buy a HDMI cable. The CD section was smaller than my apt (and I live in Manhattan).

You went to Best Buy to buy an HDMI cable? Ew.

Check out http://monoprice.com/. It will save you a lot of money.

Depressing. I still buy CD's, bought 7 this week in fact.
I just don't understand how you can feel like you own something if it isn't tangible.

Me either. Which is why I'm always shocked to hear that people buy digital files.

Ask the younger generation that doesn't value actual things.

Surprised it took this long. I refuse to buy digital (unless it is the only medium offered). But major labels are stopping CD's soon, so I guess I wont have a choice.

Yeah it's sad but true. I remember when Best Buy had racks and racks of albums, now they only have like 3 small racks.

If you listen closely, you can hear CDs taking their final breaths.
