For Those Who Think I Have a Large CD Collection
Many of my friends will attest to the fact that I have a large CD collection. However, it appears that I am but an amateur. If anybody has a $3,000,000 or so just laying around, take a look at this auction. Now that is a music collection. (Please note that eBay will give you back $10 following your purchase!)
I did a quick calculation. If you buy the collection and sit down to listen to the 300,000 CDs (forget about the vinyl...), you should be able to get through them all in about 34 years (assuming 1 hour per CD and listening 24/7 without sleep, vacation, or bathroom breaks). And a friend figured that it should only take about an 18 TB iPod to let you carry your music around with you (but query how easy it would be to "carry' an 18 TB iPod...).
OK. Back to reality.
