Reason I Love the Internet #2,392
In 17 days, the new U2 album, No Line on the Horizon, will be released.
Nine years ago, when All That You Can't Leave Behind was released, I had to wait until the day of its release to hear it. I had to drive out to the local Tower, buy the CD, and put in in the CD player - starting with the CD player in the car on the way home from said record store.
Today, as we speak, I am listening to the U2 album while I work, as it streams on MySpace. By the time I purchase the actual CD (which I will - see a forthcoming post on why), I will have listened to it at least several times already.
