CD's killed Cassettes/LP's.
DVD's Killed Laser Disc's.
DVD's are about to finish off prerecorded VHS:
NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world's largest
retailer, plans to follow the lead of other big electronics sellers
and exit the VHS business by early 2006, according to a report Sunday.
VHS tapes will still be available through the 2005 holiday season, but
will disappear from Wal-Mart (Research) shelves sometime soon after
February, said the Hollywood Reporter, citing industry sources
familiar with the matter.
"Arguing with anonymous strangers on the Internet is a sucker's game
because they almost always turn out to be -- or to be indistinguishable from
-- self-righteous sixteen-year-olds possessing infinite amounts of free time."
