Do you buy albums?

[Editor’s Note: This article was written by the CTL’s Laurie Hansen.]

I’m sure you’ve heard that iTunes announced they are now a social networking site.  I am already a music groupie for you-know-who, but now I can follow him on iTunes with Ping.

What I find to be even more interesting is that Jobs also proclaims, “Maybe it’s time to ditch the CD in the logo.”   It’s interesting (to me, anyway) that although a collection of “downloads” isn’t printed on vinyl, it is still referred to as an “album” or a “record.”  I have even heard elders still calling them “tapes”.   Perhaps the new logo is a blue, circular homage to the vinyl disc.

Like it or not, looks like we have all been officially bumped into the digital age
