Most people would argue that progress is a great thing. Most of the time they would be right, however in the case of technology, I feel there are always sacrifices to be made. When cassettes debuted many loved the fact that you didn’t need to listen through an entire album, you could fast forward directly to what you loved. During the digital music revolution we all marveled at how you could easily acquire any song you wanted, we could grab nearly any song for free. My problem lately has been a seldom enjoyed feature that used to be included with any single your purchased.. the instrumental.
Sadly I was not always one of those people who thought that it was your duty to ensure the artists you enjoy get compensated for their work. Just before ZunePass debuted in 2006, I learned how to torrent music online and for a time I freely enjoyed the fruits of artist’s labor, and didn’t give the thought that it might be stealing the time of day.
