Digital Box Sets

Just poking some fun at Apple.

During the Special Event yesterday, Steve made a big deal about "digital box sets." This is a cool idea, but there were a couple of technicalities I felt like commenting on because I'm a nitpicky little nerd.

1. "It's impossible to have a product like this in the physical world."
- Steve Jobs referring to "The Complete U2," which would fill over 30 CDs.
No, it's not impossible. Just get a bigger box. Of course the online version saves a lot of space and packaging.

2. "Digital Music Era." etc...
Last time I checked, physical CDs are digital too. Call it the Online Music Era.
