1. I kind of see this as a good thing.

I'm really liking the concept of downloading as a distribution model. It cuts out tons of money tied up in production and distribution. This "should" mean more money for the artist but we all know the music business is a cruel and shallow trench.

3. Love the graph!

And how 8 tracks and cassettes eventually go away. Have loads of both still around. Wish I had the equipment to play some of them, especially concerts recorded off the radio during the 70s-80s. Time marches on.

6. /this

Of course, one of the reasons for the fast download is because there's simply less information there...and thus the inferior sound. FLAC or ALAC sound a lot better, but still download a lot faster than a .wav or AIFF. I'm pretty content with 'em...

4. 000

I'd have thought the percentage for vinyl would be higher for 2010 than what the graph says. Is the whole "vinyl resurgence" really just a niche/cult/"indie" thing? Or does graph only represent sales of "new" discs? I'm sure sales of used vinyl are UP!
