You know you’re getting old when the CD turns 25 (years old that is!).
Wow. I have fond memories of pestering my folks to buy a microwave sized CD player back in the mid 80s. All we used it for was listening to Brothers In Arms and classical CDs in all their digital glory. At least we could listen though – according to Wikipedia:
This was also the first album to sell one million copies in the CD format. Indeed, when the disc was released, it was said that more people owned a copy of the CD than owned CD players.
What were they doing? Maybe they were trying to jam it onto their turntables. Interestingly, this kind of reminds me of the current situation with iPods – I’d bet money that not all iPod owners have a computer.
