2011 Mazda 2 Touring: In-Car Boombox
April 25, 2011
Our long-term 2011 Mazda 2 Touring's radio has a good old fashioned CD player stuck smack dab in the middle. It gives it the nostalgic appearance of CD boomboxes of yore, 2Pac and LL Cool J blasting on summer nights in the 90s (fyi: Ladies Love Cool James).
Nowadays, instead of rhyming, LL is acting on NCIS Los Angeles, and only dinosaurs like me still buy pre-recorded CDs.
Although I have an iTunes account, I prefer to buy and own CDs as my music source in case the iTunes pseudo cloud fails, or we all switch to the new format in the coming years. I can always rip them to the next format, and I don't have to worry about "digital rights management."
I'll always have my CDs, just in case. Have you completely gotten rid of your CDs?
