A few years ago, there was nothing such as digital downloading. Use of computers, phones, and tablets was not widespread yet and so the ordinary person didn’t to bother to know the difference between software and hardware. We only bought our music only from music stores and only in the form of vinyl records or CDs, since we did not have digital downloading back then. However, as time went by, CDs were slowly replaced by digital downloading of music. As of now, many people would rather download their favorite music rather than buy CDs. Should you bother buying CDs?
Well, these days digital downloading has become a lot easier than going around looking for CDs of your favorite music. Wherever there is a computer, tablet or mobile phone with a reliable Internet connection you can easily access music at your own convenience. Apple iTunes store and other online stores are a popular source for music that can you can download for a price. If you want a certain new track, you just visit an online music store and buy downloading rights. If you consider this factor, then you would not bother going around looking for CDs.
Downloading of digital music simplifies the process of buying music. Needless to say, this is also good for our environment. An obvious environmental benefit of downloading music files straight from an online store is that you don’t have to drive to a physical music store just to buy DVDs or CDs. Because you don’t have to drive, you also don’t have to release carbon exhausts into the air. Not to mention all the waste that companies like Waste Focus have to haul away or figure out how to recycle properly.
Another key benefit of downloading digital music rather than buying CDs is that it helps us to save on non-renewable resources. DVDs and CDs and their jewel cases are mostly made of plastic. Manuals, sleeves on these jewel cases and the other documents that usually come with the CD are mostly printed on glossy and thick papers with glowing colors. Recycling these printouts is hard. Downloading does away with use of such resources.
And another benefit to downloading digital music is that you can relax and do other things as you wait for your phone, computer or tablet to finish downloading. You can also do away cleaning up the clutter that DVDs and CDs create on your desk, and the thought of it may be relaxing too.
Let’s face it, there is nothing worse than purchasing an entire CD after hearing a good song in a club, only to find out that this song is the only decent track on that album. With digital music downloads, you can download a single track that you want. After learning all this, would you really bother buying CDs? I don’t think so.
