And Beta Max only died out because they turned down a deal with the sex
industry--which had this crazy idea to put porno on home video tapes. VHS
did not seem to mind the morals. ($$$$$$$$$$$$$!)
But beta is still the preferential format for serious film makers because
of it's superior quality over VHS.
Sad but true.......Give the people what they want.
God bless capitalism.
