Another reason this country wants to force everyone in to cities.Won't belong before discs are obsolete. CDs were launched in the early 80s and were the primary medium from probably the mid to late 80s through until the early 2000s. DVDs came out in the late 90s and replaced VHS pretty quickly. Blu-ray has been out for 13 years now and annual disc sales have halved over the last 5 years globally. Other than console games (which you can download also) I don't know of anyone that buys discs for anything. The format may have further improvement in it but portable media is dying fast as a concept. The idea of putting something into a machine to listen to or watch on the screen will be something people won't be familiar with before long.
My tech memories of the late 80s and early 90s was CD players and microwave ovens. Those were the things that were common enough but not everyone had. Now you can get a microwave for about $60 and CD players like CRT monitors end up in landfill.
Wireless media just ain't practical out here. I temporarily lose internet connection for short periods of time almost nightly.
I think it's regressive technology.
