Music/audio has pretty much gone completely Digital
I personally have not bought a music CD since the soundtrack to Star wars Episode 1
In preparation for an upcoming personal relocation
I decided to take the “best” of My legally bought DVD Disc collection
and Rip them to one of My Hi-capacity Lacie Fire wire drives as I will have to travel light thus discard the DVD discs
the Digital version can be enjoyed with apple Dvd player app just as if they were a physical DVD
(Yeah I know HD failure and my movies are toast)
but there are pawn shops and the " $7 discount bin" at wall mart
if i need to repurchase LOTR in the future.
MY point is I think it possible that whomever wins the BlueRay VS HDDVD
battle may find more and more consumers demanding there content as digital Data
and not want/need to have all these physical Discs piling up.
Sort of like what Tivo is doing to TV.
Buy the Data version watch till you get bored and Delete to make room for new content.
