    Well, it's happened. For the first time ever, digital music sales have surpassed CD sales, at least in the UK. A total of £155.8m was spent on music during the first quarter (up 2.7% year-over-year, for the record), and of that, 55.5% belonged to digital music, whether it be single downloads or an ad-funded / subscription service like Spotify and Last.fm.
