HMV Goes Into Administration

The leading entertainment store HMV shall be no more :( Is this the beginning of the end for the humble CD? We are now in a digital era with everything from films, games and to music available for download straight from the comfort of your own laptop/PC and other shiny gadgets. A comment arose of this being the calling for independent record shops, but are they big enough to attempt to take HMV's place in all the UK areas? And we have to think about the reasoning for their downfall. For example, we could spend hours browsing the selection of new and old music, but when was the last time we actually bought anything? Everything is much cheaper online these days, but then if these stores are taken away, it's almost like a kid with no candy to ogle.. 

Think positive. Be happy. x
