Death of the Disc

Just learned that 2 more CD outlets in my area have closed down. With the remaining music store chains rapidly converting themselves to DVD and game shops, there's no question the old compact disc is nearing the end of its life cycle. I'm in no hurry to abandon the format but I'm actually welcoming its demise - the used CD market is going to get quite lovely over the next few years and I'll gladly paw my way through the bins in search of dirt cheap treasures. Hopefully, the online distributors won't go away anytime soon (I'm looking at you CD Universe and CD Baby).

For those eager to convert their collections to MP3, this company does it in bulk for a buck a disc.
