It's hilarious that they stopped sending the picture in the WH package and instead let you download it now. Yet still have no interest in just giving what 99% of the people would prefer which is making the WH Disc downloadable. Add 3 tracks to it and ditch the dollar store gift. Members then get the thing they want as soon as it goes online and DMB inc. don't have to waste time mailing these packages out.

How hard would it be to give the option of letting people keep getting the CD or opting for the FLAC and MP3. I mean can't be that hard seeing is how that's the option they give for Live Trax.

I have a CD drive in my Genesis, which is awesome because its the most stable cell phone car mount you can get:




Fairly certain I've never had an actual CD in my car.

I got a new car last month and I probably would've paid extra if there was a CD player option. Kind of sucks that they're removing a feature I use for no added benefit.

I'll probably never be without a CD player since I still have thousands of CDs that I'll never give away. I have a player in my car, at home, and an external USB one that connects to my PC.

How do you know when a technology is dead? When what used to cost hundreds of dollars now costs $13.97.

And then one day it will be very expensive again because it's not mass produced anymore like it used to be (ex. record players)

What I don't get in today's world of tech is how a digital download of a movie costs $19.99 while the same movie in a bluray/DVD/digital download code is also $19.99

Shouldn't the digitial download alone be like $14.99 since there is no packaging or discs??

Well, a lot of times (mgm / disney / touchstone etc) you can get physical copies for much less than what the cost to own digitally. Still, I get them digitally because I donít want that shit taking up space in my house.
