For me personally, the biggest hit was owning 2 vehicles that no longer have CD players in them.
At home and at work, I listened to music through a computer, mostly MP3’s ripped from my collection and occasionally streaming on Spotify. The CD player in my car was the last place I actually played a cd. When that option went away, it really made me take a good hard look and think do I need to buy this cd to rip it once on the computer then shelve it indefinitely?
Now nearly 4 months into the new year and I’ve only made 5 purchases. Old habits die hard so I still see myself buying a physical copy now and then, but buying like the old days is done.
I used to be with it, but then they changed what "it" was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me, and it'll happen to you, too.
