Forget Vinyl, Now Cassette Tapes Are Making A Comeback?
from the retro-retro dept
Others complain that MP3s are simply too disposable, and by giving people a cassette, it makes it seem more tangible, real and permanent. I can understand the thinking, but I wonder if it's more wishful thinking than anything. And I say that as someone who still regularly buys CDs, but is increasingly wondering why I bother with so much useless plastic.
Either way, if we're going to be reviving dead formats, how about the 8-track as well? The band Cheap Trick released their last album on an 8-track, but I haven't heard that it's catching on with anyone else just yet...
