Beta will never die!
In January 1986, my dad brought home a Sanyo Beta VCR so we could
watch rented movies and tape some shows. I was 9 back then, and had no
idea what Beta and VHS were, but in the last few years, I've realized
that Beta is of course, the superior format. It is now March of 1997,
and the good old Beta VCR is still running. It isn't used much now
since it's mono and has an analog tuner, but I am going to start
looking for a used Beta Hi-Fi to do some time shifting. My mother
has tried to throw it out a few times, but I think she's finally
realized that you can't just go out and buy a new one all that easily.
Long live Beta! :)
