14ymedio, Havana, 3 February 2016 – the lifespans of technology are getting shorter. Less than five years ago the entire country was flooded with sales outlets for CDs with music, TV shows and movies, but now that moment has passed. Many sells of audiovisual materials have broadened their offerings to sell not only CDs and DVDs, but also copy material onto hard discs or flash memories.
The advantages are many: it lowers the costs for the self-employed sellers and for the users. The selection can be produced on demand, instead of opting for the so-called “combos” which are not offered on discs. For the price of two Convertible pesos (~$2 U.S.) you can get up to one terabyte of audiovisuals tailored to your own tastes.
It will not be unexpected, therefore, to see that with the same speed that the shelves were filled with discs with their flashy covers, smaller outlets will flourish where there will be just a computer and a catalog.
