I knew a fellow back in the 80s who had a huge cd collection. it took up one whole wall in his apartment. he bragged that he had a one thousand dollar cd player and that he could go into his collection and play any song that you heard on the radio. CDs typically cost around $15-$20 for an album back in the 80s. so he had a lot invested in his hoy.
Fast forward to today and you can replace his whole collection with a 100 dollar Alexa from Amazon. And, too you get all kinds of useful features including verbal stock quotes which I find useful. and after your initial purchase Amazon is constantly adding music and features for no chargr to you.
And as Ai becomes a bigger and bigger thing in our lives this is happenind to many things in our lives.
