DigitalTrends proclaims the death of the DVD, you can read it over here.
"It's strange to think that there are many of us who only have vague memories of VCRs. DVD players were truly introduced to consumers in the mid-to-late 90s, and quickly became the option du jour for home viewing. There was also a small transition period of time when you would find a family's DVD player sitting slimly atop its VCR, or maybe you glimpsed the brief shelf life of the two-in-one, VCR-DVD combo. At any rate, DVDs spelled the destruction of VHS, which has taken its place alongside Betamax, typewriters, and Discmans as items made obsolete by their successors."
