The very first ""compact disc"" or CD, was produced commercially on the 17th of August, 1982 - long before things like DVDs and Blu Rays entered the market. At first, the format that was used to create compact disc that were only intended for storing and playing sound recordings. However over time, it was adapted to allow for the storage of data. In 2004, the sales of audio CDs, and other CD creations reached around 30 billion discs. By 2007 200 billion discs had been sold worldwide. Today, with online libraries for music, cloud storage, and iPod technology, most of us listen to our music digitally - leading CDs to be practically obsolete.
