Re: Physical music overtakes downloads

Physical copies may have had higher sales than digital copies in 2017, but both digital & physical sales are down. :( In other news, Apple may have plans to phase out music downloads, believing streaming is the way of the future: https://www.digitalmusicnews.com/2017/12/06/apple-terminate-music-...

Re: When do you use a CRT?

I play my 2600 on my CRT. I don't leave the 2600 hooked up, but I do leave the switch box hooked up.

Other systems have A/V or HDMI cables; my CRT's A/V input's a bit worn, & it doesn't have an HDMI port, so I use a newer LCD TV for those.

Re: Flickr Sold; Terms Changing.

Sad thing is, almost all other photo sites have similar terms; the main reason I chose Flickr is because they didn't require a perpetual license.

Already deleted my account, by the way.

On the other hand, the OUYA was able to get into retail stores, albeit briefly.

While CDs are leaving stores, actual vinyl records are making a comeback.

Re: VentureBeat article "Consoles need to ditch discs and embrace digital downloads"

I actually find buying things online harder than buying things in stores. Username? Password? Credit Card Mumber? I don't have time to remember all that!
