Here’s the news I’ve been dreading for quite some time. I can’t say it surprises me but… dang.
My fear is that this is going to negatively affect the few record stores that are left and drive up prices of used discs.
Fears aside, it just saddens me that a whole generation will not know the joy of going to a store on Tuesday to pick up the newest releases. They will miss out on the entire social experience of purchasing music.
Don’t get me wrong, iTunes is great, but it can never give you the same experience. It’s just not the same.
I’m gonna have to go off and cry a little now.
