BBC NEWS | Technology | Not long left for cassette tapes

Some 40 years after global cassette production began in earnest, sales are in terminal decline.

Jeez, peez, Louise, I must have about a hundred powwow tapes on casette. Maybe I better stock up on a few players in case they go out of style too. Unfortunately the new car does not have a tape player, only CDs. But it's a nice sound system.
