Something I guess I have been pondering this morning. Anyone here besides me remember the 8 track player? Of course this device along with the 8 Track cartridges that went with it became obsolete in the early eighties. Part of the reason being that creation of the CD which was more compact and more durable. Now could there be a possiblity that the CD could become obsolete before long? These days people can download music online from various websites some of which are free to do so. It would seem that the CD could be facing its own extinction. Yes, its still possible it might be around for awhile longer because some don't understand about how to download music to an MP player. I will admit out loud that I am one of these people. But I think its possible that the CD could be on its way out the way some think that the DVD could be as well. It might take awhile but there could come a time like with the 8 Track player and cartridge where these won't be able to be purchased any longer.
