This was kind of interesting I thought as today a family member asked if I could go online to help them buy this CD Album of an artist they liked way back in the day. They grew up during the record and cassette times and so a CD still seems very advanced to them. While I tried to find the CD it seemed like it simply didn’t exist in most places. For the copies that were available it was mostly from resellers asking for ridiculous prices. I was then mentioning how they could just buy it digital and play it right on their tablet for example. It was cheaper and more accessible for them if you think about it. Sure enough, they were surprised you could even do that for music and was surprised at how cheap it could be.
It made me think how if you are in a situation like this where haven’t spent a lot of time keeping up with how things work for some of your favorite past hobbies and entertainment it may be a good idea to just sit down and see how people are doing it nowadays. Not only can it potentially be better for you, it can be way cheaper. Many times the price of using older items like these is more due to people selling them as collectibles of sort. That was definitely not what they wanted it for too.
This can even hold true for something as simple as phone communication. So many people still spend an enormous amount of money on long distance fees even though they use the Internet. Like there, it can be good to sit back and digest how things have developed to see how you can take advantage of these offerings to save more money while still getting what you need.
