    CD going obsolete?

    I picked up my new Quilters Newsletter magazine with a CD sealed in the bag. I thought to myself, how long has it been since I actually put a CD in the computer? Ages and ages and I think they need to re-think their " freebies". How long has it been since you used one in a computer?

    Fairly recently. I have the Farmer's Wife CD for EQ and one for quilt labels that I use quite a bit.

    Most of mine are downloaded and stored in cloud storage. I only have to access the part I want not the whole cd. The only time I put a cd in my computer is to send to cloud. Cloud storage is cheap if you need more then the free allowable space.
    Got fabric?

    My new computer only has place for memory stick.....no place for CD and I have several on quilting I wanted to use. DH took the one from The Farmer's Wife and put it on a stick for me, works really good.

    i shall be very sad when CDs are no longer available.
    great for "hands on" mass backup that's less vulnerable than just hard drive.
    no need to entrust my data to a cloud.
    inexpensive, doesn't take up much room.

    and ... i already have a pile of LPs i can't play.
    i'd rather not add a stack of CDs to the "useless" box.
    don't want to have to buy equipment to play mp3s.

    If I came across a computer with no CD I think I would think twice about getting it. I still like to down load my CD's to itunes and have too many applications I can add to my computer.

    I have cd's for several things like Word, games, etc. There would be a lot of upset people if they eliminate them.

    All my photos are stored on CD's, I mean a lot. I wish they would quit making things obsolete.
