Sure there are threads like this all over the internet but I have yet to see one right here on Talkbass so why not start one ? It seems to me that a lot of techies are suggesting that physical media's demise is not only eminent but fast approaching. I just can't seem to get on board with that idea just yet and I don't think I'll be budging anytime soon. No one can deny that the world of digital media is rapidly expanding and quickly usurping areas that used to be completely dominated by discs or other storage devices but I think that there's a limit to what digital downloads can accomplish at this point. There still lots of benefits to physical media like letting friends borrow it and general ease of transportation and while ISPs employ monthly download limits I don't see digital media gaining the advantage in those things any time soon. Anyway, I want to hear you guys thoughts on the subject (on a forum that I actually visit regularly ).
