DVDs, CDs………I hate them!
“But!” you may say, “the picture is so much better, they are so thin they take up almost no room, you can have 100 in an easy-to-carry compact case!”
And I would have to say that you bring up some good points.
But information, movies, shows, etc. are only as good as their vehicle of delivery. Does this sound familiar?
You go to the store and find the very CD, or DVD, that you have been wanting forever. You buy it on the spot!
You unpackage it (this could be a whole other story in and of itself), go over to the device you are going to play it in, and carefully lift it out of the holder. You pop it into the electronic appliance that will magically “read” and play it for you. You sit back to relax and enjoy your new-found prize!
What’s this? It just skipped ahead! You can’t get it to go back and play correctly. So, you take it out of the machine, turn it over, and look.
A huge scratch across the disk!
And you thought balloons deflate fast when they are popped. Ha!
Now you have to live with a disk you can never enjoy, try to go all the way back to the store to exchange it, or just throw it away. 😦
Nope, I hate DVDs, and CDs. Give me back a good old VCR or audio cassette tape. Those things live forever. They take more punishment and replays than anything else around!
Yep, give me back the tapes! 🙂
