Do You Judge Those Who Keep Hard Copy Media?

Do You Judge Those Who Keep Hard Copy Media?

With so many of us transferring our media onto computers and staying all digital, it's easy for a living area to feel slightly archaic when "real" cds or dvds are spotted! Do you judge friends and family who keep their media on display in such a large and in charge format? We wish we could say we didn't...

While trolling through the latest home tours over at Apartment Therapy, we came across the lovely living room of Amna and Paul. Their home is simply stunning (seriously, go take the tour) and everything looks amazing, but when we got to the photo of their entertainment center it all felt so out of place.

There's a weird disconnect between what we think we should see based on a certain degree or pedigree rather of design in a space. If it looks neat and pretty, clean and modern, then you expect certain things thanks to the large influx of design based photography of homes around the world.

Although we know it's odd to be shocked by something like this, especially since we have hundreds of cds squirreled away in a box somewhere to be officially uploaded into iTunes at a later date, we're curious at what point they will start being old tech, and feel more like vhs movies do to us now — almost unheard of! Obviously people shouldn't feel pressured by the outside world to transfer, re-buy or spend more money on a product they've already purchased, but we do like the benefits that having digital copies provides.

How do you feel about seeing cd's and dvds (or rather the large display of them) when you visit friends and family. Does the organizational nerd come out in you or is it even on your radar to notice? Let us know below!
