Have you ever thought about what you know as being the norm that kids won’t even know about?
This was my status on facebook:
And it made me think …will my kids even remember what a CD is? I mean Hayden owns some CDs and Noah knows what they are but will they eventually go out of style my cassettes did? Do you even remember what a cassette is? When they get old enough to be responsible for electronic items, will they leave their CDs behind and everything be digital? It seems that’s what the world is coming to. A lot of kids are old enough to have cell phones at the moment so of course most also have mp3 players.
I realized last week that I have yet to put a CD in my new car.. and I’ve had this new car for 4 and a half months. I mean there are so many other ways to listen to music now-a-days. You have the regular public radio, satelitte radio, plenty of ways to stream any music from your phone or mp3 player through your car. I mean most newer cars come with usb ports so your set. I don’t really even buy CDs anymore since I can buy all my music from iTunes.
CD sales have been on the decline ever since digital music was introduced. I think at some point we won’t be turning to CDs anymore but I’m not sure how close we are to that. Not everyone has (or wants) a digital method of playing their music. But as our lives progress, it will become the norm like CDs once were.
Do you still buy CDs or have you switched over to the digital world? Do you still make sure your kids know what we grew up with?
