New cassette tape could hold 47 million songs

Hi,

I saw this news article on CNN’s website looks like the cassette tape could comeback…

Pity I sold my Walkman cassette player a while ago…

Funny they show an old cassette in the accompanying photo. It’s related, but definitely not for consumers. This is low-cost computer backup material here.

Sounds great until you consider Sony’s track record with hardware & obsoleting/abandoning it shortly afterwards…
