(News) Zombie Machines and Angus' Abnormal CD Collection

"The UK CD albums market grew by 4.5% in 2004 with a record 174.6 million units sold. On average every Briton buys 3.2 CDs per person per year." - 3.2 CDs per YEAR!!!! Christ, It's a quiet when I don't buy 1-3 CD's in a WEEK! All I can say is that there must be plenty of people out there who never buy a CD! This also reminds me of the figures from a few years ago that said the average British household had a total of 3 books! (Looks at his shelves and shelves of books). Er, well I guess I've never been accused of being average.....

UK "World's Biggest Music Buyer" (BBC News On-Line; Tuesday 22nd March 2005)

Also in the news...... Rise of Zombie PCs "Threatens UK" (BBC News On-Line; Tuesday 22nd March 2005) - 25.2% of all hijacked computers (zombie machines) are based in the UK (24.6% in the US and 7.8% in China). Make sure you're firewalled up and have upto date virus checkers folks! I'd hate to see your beloved computers have to take headshots to put them down!
