"On december 23, 2008, the last major supplier of VHS tapes, Distribution Video Audio Inc. of Palm Harbor, Florida, shipped its final truckload."

It is sad, isn't it? I remember when my family got a VCR for our family Christmas gift. It was such a big deal because we didn't have to rent one at the video store. Remember video stores? (Ode to Netflix here)
It really is sad...except the part about being able to store approx. 20 movies in the space that it takes to store 1 VHS. Oh, and the rewinding. That I do not miss.
