Thankfully I haven’t bought a CD since 2007!

I bought a CD this week (Isao Tomita’s Ravel album). But it was an outlier personally and in the economy as a whole.

It took me a bit to remember what my CD ripping software was called.

Only 5 years after this article was posted, EMI was dissolved. So that’s what happens when you drop DRM.
