Now that we’re safely in the digital age, some people still choose to cling to physical media, such as books, CD’s, cassettes, and vinyls. To hell with that. There’s no point in clinging to the past.
I honestly don’t see the appeal in cassettes or vinyls, with mp3’s so widely available, and for free. Can’t exactly pirate a vinyl, now can you? Does it make you feel special to have an outdated piece of trash sitting on your bookshelf? Keeping all this old stuff is akin to keeping an old pizza because you loved how it tasted a couple years ago.
Now with the arrival of the iPad and Kindle, some people are worried about what may happen to physical books. Well they can disappear for all I care. So what if paper’s been around for thousands of years? I know I won’t miss it at all. *Out with the old, in with the new.*
