    I’m with you on this. Music apart, this also applies to books. I have a huge collection of reference books, cookery books and novels in crates in my garage, just don’t have sufficient room in the house for them all. Ebooks are convenient to take on holiday, but one day, like it or not cloud storage will cease to exist and peoples music and book collections will vanish.
    Paper books for me, too.

      When I changed roles in 1991 I was told that the technology I was working on would be gone by the middle of the 1990s. I am still working on it and teaching new people all about it.

      Sometimes customers dont want to change. It is technically possible for an airliner to fly itself from Heathrow to Washington with no human intervention but would anyone go on it ?
      Not after yesterday, when a Flybe plane started nosediving when the pilot switched over to autopilot.

      Also there are warnings about the autopilot on the 737 after this.

      What about our own scroungers? Make them do some work instead of living on handouts.
      Good luck with that in the South East of England

      I met my first year tutees (uni students - I am their sort of mentor) today. All of them stream music. None of them 'own' any music. They thought that iPods, music ownerships and (especially) buying CDs are all quite funny and weird. I mentioned I had over 16000 items, some extremely rare and not available any more, on my iPod. I mentioned that I have a massive knowledge of music over the last 40 years and can find and curate amazing music, and that its story and context are part of its magic. They were quite patronizing, a bit like how sometimes people reply to BG about how good it must have been in the olden days.

      I'll get my coat, then.
      and they never know what they're listening too either!

      Me - I like this, what is it?
      Them - dunno, spotify, innit

      Likewise, always paperbacks for me. I'm a prolific reader on holiday. I think nothing of leaving my book on my sun lounger if I waltz off for a dip or a stroll into town - can't do that with a Kindle can you.

      I also wouldn't trust myself to sit in the pool / jacuzzi holding an expensive electronic device.
