Re: mp3 downloads
good question...and i always thought the same. i like the booklet and the physical cd. but then i see my collection of cd's to be of crazy size and i find myself almost needing to buy yet another rack case for the office. i'm getting more into downsizing and making things "clean." if i cut out the middleman and download, i won't have the cd's and i can just rip my entire collection (few weeks) that i currently have, to the hard drive, and get rid of the racks on the floor. the ones that are ripped i have a feeling i will never need the cds again. i can easily rip any format to wav but it's realtime and a pain. i will still buy the cds if it's something i really want forever but for the most part, it's all about saving space. i wouldn't spend what itunes wants but i also wouldn't download for nothing either. the artists need to get some money and free sites usually carry virus' with them.
