Martijn I like permanent things. My wallet is made of aluminium and I prefer longer lasting hardcover books. All my digital assets feel so feeble compared to this.

Dongsung Kim The point aside though, beware of the aluminum things! They tend to make permanent black scratches on other aluminum things and also on themselves; MacBooks, iPads, cameras, external batteries... I once borrowed a small Sony camera from a friend for my trip, carried it in a bag during the time, and ended up buying it from him because the damage was just too severe. It seems every digital device these days is made of aluminum, so to prevent them from touching each other I started to put some in a plastic bag, in my usual bag. Sometimes I miss the old days of plastic devices.
Martijn I never knew they had that effect on each other! Learn something new every day. Good thing my MacBook doesn't fit in my pocket with my wallet.

Emoli How do you sit comfortably on an aluminum wallet?

Mark Dain That's one of the reasons why I buy music rather than stream it. Who knows if Spotify will be around in 5 years? If iTunes disappears in 5 years, my music collection (DRM free) remains.

Martijn I am not a big 'user' of music, but I share the same opinion when it comes to books. I have a Kindle and it sure is handy when travelling, but that hardcover Alice in Wonderland on my desk is going to stay there for the next 25 years.
