I'm famous* :-). Of course the BBC edited my original question and skipped the last bit (which is fair enough, it was probably overly technical). However they either didn't get the point or chose to interpret the question in a different way. The phrase "harder to move around than a CD" was meant to allude to the fact its easier to buy a CD and rip the music yourself**. Once you've ripped the music in your preferred encoding format you can put it on whatever device you like. The guy from HMV takes a very different view of versatility of digital music than I do. Overall I'm not very impressed with the answers from these experts but I'll leave you to judge the whole debate yourselves.

*Fame being rather subjective on the 'net
**Not withstanding previously mentioned broken CDs.
