I got an XBox 360 last week (an extravagant present for myself). Still haven't gotten these so-called 'points' but I basically spent the dosh mainly to play Portal and Braid. Also got PGR4, Kung-fu Panda, Indiana Jones and Gow/Gow2. It's good to be able to play current-gen games at my own home.

Add me if you will.
(Bezman, aciddica and Behrooz were all taken.)
Maybe in the future, CD players will be largely replaced by MP3 players with speakers. Whilst I know there are things an iPod can plug into, though, I don't know of any standalone mp3 players that you can just plug a USB stick in and then play songs from. Until something like that comes along, I still need to constantly burn 'mixCDs' if I want to have my songs blasting through the air for folks to enjoy together and share somewhere away from my PC. Seems wasteful from a material point of view, but oh well.
I feel like the only reason left to buy a CD is excellent graphic design. Ani diFranco's Evolve, with a cut-out butterfly on the sleeve and Underworld's best-of album were not bad but even then I'd rather pay half the price for a digital copy if it went to the artist and it was DRM-free.
CDbaby.com is nice like that.
As for my existing jewel-cases, well, they're on top of a fireplace shelf just behind my bed.
