Progress is a funny thing. I am reminded of the snowstorms that take out power for a week and things grind to a halt in some towns. People will buy up a month's worth of milk/bread/water/toilet paper for a 3 day snow-in... and panic ensues if their power is out more than 24 hours. And yet... less than a generation ago this would have been a minor convenience. Two generations ago and people didn't even have power to lose. So... with each advance comes new problems. Digital downloads can't be stored on a shelf on top of your subwoofer. They also need to be backed-up if you want to keep them. Downloads are also quite slow OR at much lower quality until 30Gbps broadband becomes more available to us all... and then ISPs will lower bandwidth caps and raise prices to compensate for that extra speed. I just don't see all progress as progress. Change for the sake of change also might not be progress after all.
