    Our local BestBuy here in Fargo has around 6 racks devoted to video products.
    5 are DVD.

    The reason given besides more people having DVD players was how much more they make from DVDs because they are not priced for rental. Now really, how long do we think that will last?

    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

    Of course, they're replacing their VHS tapes with P&S and editied DVD's. Some trade off. [​IMG]
