Did you know that Sony had still been making Betamax for all of these years? I stumbled upon an article the other day "Sony is Finally Killing Betamax," and out of nostalgia, I clicked on it. I was surprised to learn that in 2016 Sony announced that they were going to stop making Betamax tapes. Why are they still making Betamax when there are streaming and blue ray? Seriously, who is still buying Betamax in 2016? Can you even watch Betamax on a 4k HDR TV? Then the big question came to me: AM I CLINGING TO BETAMAX IN MY WORK LIFE?
