What stores are people shopping at anyway?
I don't get this bit about choice?
I still see plenty of tube sets being sold and they still will be for quite some time, but as a fading out deal.
Is everyone here that is complaining about CRTs fading out, also the same who own DVDs now?
I was pissed off when I found out that my local video store (name brand store outfit) phased out VHS tapes and I finally had to break down and buy a DVD player but I bought me one that could still let me view all my trillions of VHS tapes, I bought the combo deal.
But!, now that I'm into DVDs, I can't even see what I really liked more about VHS anyway, other then the longer recording times I could cram on one tape, but now that is even old since I now can put a decent quality video of 6hours on a single DVD, (double layer) so I'm already converted over and still have me a nice little combo set to back up all my old tapes before they all rott away.
Old school, tapes.
Tapes couldn't let me instantly jump to any part on the tape.
Tapes rot away.
New school, DVDs.
DVDs I can jump to any place I want instantly.
Same thing with this issue.
More advantages then not, with more coming as time goes by.
CRTs are the modern version of the old radios fading away for the TV area.
Or like back and whites being discontinued for color sets.
Zillions of people were quite happy with a cheap, inexpensive black and white set.
But look now, color is cheap and anyone can afford it and the same will come soon enough for LCDs and their ilk.
