The End of the Music CD

Not surprising, although unfortunate for the 300 people who will lose their jobs.

Is the DVD next? Sony closing CD plant in face of digital music:
Sony will close one of its biggest CD making factories due to the growth and popularity of digital downloads as well as other economic influences. Based in Pitman, New Jersey, the plant has been operating for 50 years and first produced vinyl records. When its doors close on March 31, nearly 300 people will be out of work.

I made a post recently about the death of the CD and physical music media. Some of us miss the artwork too on a vinyl. It seems if you ask people to pay legally or steal music, they'd rather steal it at no cost.
