“The beginning of the end for the CD”

This piece of news is going around the Internet. I saw it first on Coolfer and now slashdot linked to this article in the Guardian.

I still haven’t made a single paid download (but then again, I still buy vinyls…). One thing to keep in mind, not mentioned in the article, is that downloads from iTunes will only play iPods and not on any other portable mp3-player (without breaking the law). I can really see the Dollar-Signs in some people’s eyes. It’s as if CDs could only be read on Sony CD players.

Also, with Christmas coming up. Do people offer iTunes vouchers instead of CDs?
