get jammed and all you could do was throw the tape out your car window and have a stream
Of ribbon blowing behind you in the wind
when I took my first computer course in 1983, we learned on Commodore 64's and our media storage was cassettes. I stupidly put my computer cassette in my car stereo to see what it sounded like and it was kinda neat, all staticky and squeeky and boinging, until I put my Ted Nugent Free For All cassette in next and the magnetic media transferred from the player head onto my Teddy tape. it was never the same after that.
once upon a time, videos came out on Video Disc - the same size as record albums but basically the same thing as a DVD. I knew people who bought into every phase of video evolution. anyone ever fall for the DAT craze?
Laser Disc.. You can still find those in used bookstores. As for a player who the hell knows.
