Why should I buy a CD anymore? I have a Zunepass for my Zune HD player. Unlimited streaming and downloading of (DRM protected) albums. 10 free MP3 unprotected tracks per month. No reason to buy CDs. If I like an album and want to have it on a CD, I will use my 10 song credit, add on whatever Microsoft wants for the additional (if any) tracks, and burn the MP3s to a CD.
