The CD is going away fast at the mid level because it is only a liability
for any recording that isn't meant for the lowest common denominator. These
are the labels that were decimated by napster, quiet as that's kept.
I expect to see all optical media disappear and be replaced by a limited
number of lavishly packaged titles on USB media in stores and high
resolution downloads for everything else. Multi-gigabyte files probably
won't be convenient for people to loot anytime soon.
