OregonVet: People still listen to CDs?

I've bought a lot of cds ever since Amazon started giving away free digital copies of any cds you buy from them.

Awhile back I wanted the Tom Petty 2-disc greatest hits: $19.99 for a digital copy, or $4.99 for a physical copy that comes with a free digital backup. Download it right away, physical cd shows up 2 days later gets tossed in a corner still in the shrink-wrap. It's a nice loophole.

Not selling it.
