Interesting story..... (see macca news)
In 5, 10, 20 years (take your pick), none of us will be buying CDs - or any similar physical storage medium. All our music will be available online in real time, on demand - as will movies and old TV shows.
Ultimately, we will all pay a monthly subscription to a service provider, in return for regular TV plus on-demand movies and music. Some on-demand items will be included in the monthly charge, some you pay extra for (pay per view / listen).
The market price for "play once" as opposed to "download and keep" will adjust to a level at which many people won't even bother to keep a permanent record - apart from a few things they really need. CD and record collections in a physical sense will be a thing of the past.
This is the way of the future, and The Beatles WILL be a part of it.
Of course, I'm not giving up my record deck and vinyl for anything. I can't wait to be the old guy in the neighbourhood who has the kids knocking on the door asking - "is it really true? you have a record player? can we see it?"
