CURSE YOU, 'streaming' music services! I want a bloody CD

Amazon to the rescue.

Source media is useful to avoid vendor lock-in.

Time was I was a big Apple fan, but I've never been a fan of iTunes. These days I mostly hate Apple and their products. I've had many music playing devices over the digital years, and including a number of hifi systems with real amplifiers and speakers!

Amazon did something really cool a while back: when you buy a CD from them, you get immediate and on-going access to that CD in mp3 format. You can download immediately and a couple of days later the CD turns up in the post.

Best of both worlds.
