The beauty of individualism though, is that I in return don't care about the fact that gen Y is stupid enough to pay $5 for nothing (you gotta remember I'm in the "a phone should be a phone, not a phone/internet/tv/game/dishwasher" camp).

Just because the rest of the world is duped into spending money on air doesn't mean that I have to follow. I know myself well enough to know that once digital distribution is the only form of purchase I will stop purchasing. And I have a feeling that you may overestimate the entire world population's willingness to cling to a new technology very quickly (10 years or less). We'll still have boxed copy products for many years to come…

of course I could be wrong We'll just have to wait and see.
May all your hits be crits!
