He’s right, you know. Beta is still with us, as a means of capturing footage for news and entertainment. Cassette tapes still record on-the spot sound, and are used for homemade low-fidelity music compliations. Lp records are still the recording source of choice for many d.j.’s.
Media stay with us. They just redefine themselves — or are redefined — as new technology comes. I’ll tell you this: If I want to time-shift the 10:00 news, I’m not gonna author a DVD.
pedantic as ever.
Well I wouldn’t exactly buy stock in a manufacturer who only sold cassette tapes, Beta tapes or LPs. BUT I did mention 8 tracks…and as far as I know theres only a few of those left, most in old Camaros and Trans Ams on blocks in rural Georgia and Alabama. Divx has now gone the way of Steven Speilberg’s breakfast…ie down the toilet with the rest of the shit…right where it belongs. As for time shifting the ten O’Clock news…its most likely already encoded using DVD encoding and sitting on a hard drive someplace waiting to be spooled out to the living rooms of left coast liberals such as yerself…OK I HAD to get that shot in….
