What surprises me about these facts and figures‚ÄĒapart from iTunes skyrocketing again after the introduction of variable pricing‚ÄĒis the fact that CDs are not completely dead yet. They are clearly going down, but I had this mental image in which all of those round mirrors were destroyed, melting like Dali clocks in a desert of indifference. [Mint]
