Wait, cassettes are making a comeback?
Gotta get rid of all the formats that are easy to resell or pass down.
The end of a ******* era.
In much the same sense that vinyl has. It's a niche market that has its followers who insist music sounds better on it but are otherwise a small minority.
When are DVDs/Blu Rays next?
They still sold CDs? Everyone is digital now for music. I don't even bother enabling downloads on mixes for Soundcloud anymore because folks just stream.
Yeah, I was really surprised to see some cassette players advertised a little while back. Think I might just wipe the dust off my old tape boxes
Cassettes? It's reel-to-reel spool tapes you want.
I remember my dad having one of those!
Sad but its expected.
I'm old enough to remember 8 track tapes.
Solid media for audio and video has always standed on shaky grounds.
It's what they used in the Mission Impossible TV series in the 60s. Whenever it says "this tape will self destruct in 5 seconds", that's what it's referring to.
Who has space to keep storing solid media anyhow?
That's right, I remember. Then it would start smoking.
I always wondered: what if he missed some of the details and it self destructed?
Or what if someone else broke in and found that tape before he did?
They're working on it. Went into my local BEST BUY last week (first time in months)....the DVD section was down to around a 12 foot section on the back wall. The same goes for TARGET. Their DVD section has gone down to next to nothing. In my area, the places with the biggest selection of DVDs is WalMart and FYE.
My Best Buy has similarly scaled back their Blu-Ray/DVD section although not nearly as much as that. It went from roughly 12 shelves to 8.
Same with me, though my Wal-Mart doesn't stock much. The fact is most people stream or buy hard copies online now.
Yeah, I imagine him frantically pouring a glass of water on it, crying "No! No, No!"
I remember when my boombox used to munch my cassette tapes and we tried to fix them with tape. Fun times.
I bought this stereo in 2001, it had to be one of the last systems ever made with a cassette deck.
I still buy albums on CD.
**** MP3 compression. These vinyl hipsters are also lame, considering the vast majority of the albums they buy were recorded digitally anyway and therefore sound no "warmer" on a record.
Can't say I'm surprised they're stopping, considering how small the CD section is at their stores now. It's still weird to think how CDs went from being by far the largest floor space of the media department 10-15 years ago to now just like 2-3 racks.
