There are plenty of reasons to digitize your aging DVD library. One is that, at this point, those discs are probably just gathering dust. Moving that content onto your computers and other devices means you’re more likely to actually watch it. It’s also a good way to make sure your videos stay safe from scratches or loss.
Plenty of us have stacks of DVDs gathering dust in the closet. Streaming video services offer a lot of content, but you never know what will be available when.

You’ve got a Mac, which is one of the finest computing machines money can buy. But it’s really only as useful as the applications you put in it. When you’ve already dropped serious coin on a new computer, it can hurt to fork out even more for a bunch of apps.
