  1. The only constant is change

    First Betamax, VHS is dying out and now DVDs may soon be a thing of the past. Why? Holographic disks.

  2. I can’t see DVDs fading that quickly. Remember that all this technology has to have end users, and most of the population of available users are just making the change to DVD (along with all the content that had to be transitioned). The only way I can see this taking place soon is if someone makes a player that will play both DVDs and the new disc and makes it available at a reasonable price.

  3. You are correct-it will take time. Indeed, it may take 10 years or so, as the transition to HDTV takes hold.

  4. Nope, it wasn’t granny what killed ‘em, it was me. I just bought a DVD player for the TV and installed a DVD player on the computer (”just” as in “just the day before yesterday”).

    Yes, and I killed ‘em just to watch them die.
