The CD is 30 now!

On October 1, 1982, the first commercial compact disc, Billy Joel's „52nd Street,“ was released. Since that time, thousands of billions of compact discs have been sold. The same day the first CD player was presented.

After some time, the new technology allowed to use compact discs to store data and video and then developed into re-writeable media and Blu-Ray DVDs.

The length of music CDs could hold has also gradually increased.

Despite the fact that digital files have appeared compact discs are still being sold.

I have tons of them at home but I rarely make use of them as a USB is much convenient.

It depends on your aim: if you need to store some data, then digital files are much more convenient, but concerning movies or music albums discs can still be quite handy.

In my opinion, disks gradually became as a rarity, as records and tapes that we used to listen to in the past. Only amateur collectors will need them in the foreseeable future, as it is more economical to download movies, books and music from the Internet now, saving them on different devices. As for the discs that are still being sold, how many ones have you bought for the recent 1-2 months?
