How tech savvy are we? Very, according to a new Nielson study that puts DVD players ahead of VCRs in US homes for the first time.
More than eighty percent of homes in the US have DVD players…less than 80 percent have VCRs. You can count on a general phasing out of video cassette production by the major studios. Since DVD technology went mass market in 1997, it has gradually gained on its older media brother whose own introduction came over twenty years earlier. Count on seeing more VCRs in neighborhood yardsales.
I am sure it won’t be long before BluRay and friends will push DVDs off the charts as well.
