Record players are still on the market.
I certainly hope the VCR stays with us. I am sure it will be around for a long time but will be a small percent of the market. I still have many old movies, TV
shows, home made movies that I wont bother transfering to DVD.
Since you can record on to a VHS tape, it will still have some life in it. It wont die like the Video Disc or Laser Disc.
Betamax was better than VHS.
