It’s Australia Day. There’s a good chance many of you are sitting back, beer in hand listening to Triple J’s Hottest 100. Others may be listening to Whispering Jack on repeat (It’s okay, we’ve all been there). The point is that music on Australia day is as Australian as Anzac biscuits.

iTunes, Netflix, Amazon and even PSN are all pretty good at distributing downloadable movies and music. But all of these data files, as easy as they are to buy, make for a crappy gift.
