Why go tapeless?
No moving parts.
Imagine what the tape looked like when I finally got it out.
Update: You know this whole thing reminds me of the hell of getting my data out of Outlook a few years ago. People care about the data, not the app. Same goes for hardware. I didn’t think twice in destroying a videocam in my pursuit of a stuck videotape with Christmas 2006 on it.
