Things that are very uncool

Dualdisc.

I will not be buying any more CDs that aren't plain old CDs anymore.

Dualdiscs are new CD/DVD combinations that you flip to use as one or the other. However, they don't rip on my PowerBook or on my parents' DVD drive. They do rip on my parents' CD-RW however.

I only buy CDs so I can rip them and have the liner notes & jewel case. I listen to music solely on my computers, solely off of the hard drives.

As a side note, I purchased Ben Folds: Songs for Silverman, and Dave Matthews: Stand Up

And as another side note, both discs have big ass "FBI ANTI-PIRACY WARNING" logos on the back. When did this start?

When people started ripping CDs.

on the back of the actual CD? or on the back of the jewel case behind the CD?

Back of the case.

The CDs are actually rather uninteresting: since they have data on both sides the only place anything is stamped is on the plastic hub.
