When Will Cds Die?

Recommended Posts

Magnetic tape isn't dead. It's actually the preferred system for backing up servers. It's what every enterprise uses.

Damn right, the company my father works for backs up storage with tapes.

 

   what the fawk is magnetic tape O.o

It's almost looks like a cassette tape, but it fast and more reliable compared to hard drives, but you need a jukebox looking device to able to write and read to the tapes. It's not so practical for everyday use, but if you need to store a lot of critical files, it's quite practical, especially in a corporate sense.

my oppinion is that they will die out slowly. i guess that in a 20 yers time cds are no longer in use, at all... exept from collectors and people that does not want to get used to new technology. I strongly belive in 10 years then in most music shops they give you a code to download it online or something. mabye you have to loggin to your itunes or spotify account in the store to get them register the speciffic song or album to your account. this is my guess :D 10-20 years

Also, magnetic tape drives cost >$2000 usually. And a 1TB tape can cost upwards of $500 each. Plus you need at least two tapes.

 

Just to give you an idea of cost, but it's well worth it for mission critical data.

Wow... you learn something new every day. I didn't know that you could even get tape drives like that with those capacities said just above

I'm not gonna say the CD is never gonna die, but it will be a long time. We're still lots of people who enjoy owning physical copies of our music, they are a lot better than MP3's (mind you there's other formats like FLAC etc which have improved) and until there's a good replacement for this I'm keeping my Pioneer PD-75 and I'll keep buying CD's.

Windows have not been fitted on CD's for several years, that does not make CD's dead.

I can't really see then being discontinued for quite some time, especially since tapes are still being used.

CDs may disappear but Blu-Ray will be around for a while, no doubt. Given the storage capacity and the reduction in surface damage/errors on the discs. There's no reason to completely remove physical media, as it's still important and sometimes flash drives are not suitable or robust enough.

yea blu rays are pretty new, but aren't the read/write speeds much slower than CDs?

Nope, the exact opposite.

 

How would you play high def video (more MB/s) on it if it was slower?

well all the Music shops and DVD stores in my town have shut down, complaining about people not shopping local.

When your selling Albums for 50 bucks its no wonder you went out of business.

Anyone else in Australia have an issue with local sellers complaining about people not buying local, then selling things for double and triple actual cost?

All the albums at my local CD shops are pretty cheap. JB hifi sells really cheap CDs when you buy at the right time

For what reason? Are you using CD's as a reference to all optical media, or just the real "CD"? Optical media will continue to be relevant for another decade.

I agree here also Linus mentioned this on the live stream, I'm paraphrasing but basically he said they won't go away for a long time for the simple fact that cds/dvds are so so cheap to produce, and are very user friendly to a non techy person, not everyone knows how to use use sticks and people still use dial up Internet which outs streaming out the question
