They might want to stop writing BS about how Apple "saved" the music industry while they're at it:
Steve Jobs helped save a sinking music industry by courting struggling record labels...
Right...Am I supposed to believe that Warner or Universal would have filed for bankruptcy by now if it wasn't for iTunes? Digital downloads STILL only account for 10% of all music sold. 10%.
Steve Jobs, Savior of the Music Industry. What utter nonsense.
And I may be fighting a tidal wave, but I don't want digital downloads to become the future especially when it comes video. We are decades away from video downloads meeting the quality of physical HD formats available today. I don't want to spend the whole day waiting for a 20GB movie to download. Nor do I want to spend more money on less than DVD-quality movies from iTunes. And worse, I don't want to be stuck using whatever device Apple deems good enough to watch my content on.

Was that a typo or am I supposed to believe you spent $20K on shelving for DVDs? Sorry if I don't feel sorry about your storage issues if you can amass a 1000+ DVD collection, presumably a 1000+ CD collection, and then top it off with $20K in storage furniture.
Problem is if all that content was digital, it would be more complex as having to deal with physical media. Multiple hard drives, presumably managing backups in case of a hard drive failure, networking issues, cabling, content management, etc. That to me sounds more complex than scanning an alphabetically arranged collection of cases.
