>Thar’s iPods in them tharr CDs!

No, there aren’t CD-style iPods coming out. Rather, here one can trade their CDs in towards any iPod. I called these folks and inquired about the whole thing. It seems to be on the up-and-up. The only review I could find, however, from someone who actually tried it said that of the 425 discs he sent in, only 53 were sellable and of good quality (separate criteria). So this got me thinking: I used to sell music to a CD Warehouse in SW Florida for like $3-$4 per disc. I could get a significantly bigger value doing that. So off Chelsiar and I went.

2 stores and the same amount of hours later we returned home with $150 and no CDs. Not quite the outcome my dollar-crossed eyes envisioned. So if I were to do this again knowing what I know now (and learning that all of my CDs were considered be in excellent condition) I would just mail them off for the $12 to Millenium Music and take my chances.

Oh, and by the way, the biggest part of all of this was missed somehow: we’ve gone digital totally with our music. No more heaps of plastic discs to weigh us down (except the 3.5″ drive in my computer). It really wasn’t that difficult or long of a decision to make.

Now, anyone wanna buy a decorative 300 CD rack?
