bye bye Beta

i’ve posted previously about how Beta is still marketed, despite it being an obsolete technology. unfortunately, the end of an era has arrived as Sony announced it will end its videotape production in 2016. in addition, MV micro-cassettes will also be retired. so hold onto those VHS tapes (or, if you’re in the vicinity of Yale University, donate them), because they could be worth something!
