I'm seeing the trend with software, where discs aren't included in store-bought packages, it's all just a download. Basically, you're buying a license to use the software. Strictly virtual. And good luck loading it onto your 2nd laptop! At least with iTunes, you can have your songs on up to 5 of your computers/devices.
But I digress.
