The CD Turns 30 - No Gift From MP3

The Compact Disc turned 30 years old this week. That's the time period between now and its first demonstration, not when it became commercially available in 1982.

In that time, 3.5 billion CD players were sold along with 240 billion (yes, with a 'B") discs.

Even though the CD is now into a slow death roll, it's had a remarkably successful run and has made a lot of people and companies wealthy. Too bad we can't say that for it's replacement.
