Death of VHS

BBC NEWS reports:

"The death of the video cassette recorder appears to be in sight after the UK's largest electrical chain said it is to stop selling them.

Dixons will phase out VCRs due to the boom in DVD players, sales of which have grown seven-fold in five years."

With DVD recorders becoming affordable, and Hard Disk based PVR's quite affordable and feature packed, I can see the death of VHS coming quite quickly. I can't remember the last time I used my video recorder. I possibly used it once last year, but not this year at all. I won't be replacing mine when it dies.
