Considering the fact that DVDR’s are more discussed about around here and also more people are listening to mp3’s with iPod and various clones, what does the future hold for CD-R’s? I know that blank cassette production was still high even a few years into CD-R’s rise in popularity. Now, I hardly see blank tapes on shelves at local retail stores. I’m wondering if CD-R is now heading in this direction. Will iPod, DVDR and the like kill our interest in CD-R for the future? Or is this happening sooner than we realise? Or am I just dreaming this up? lol.
Oh yeah, one more question… Why did Mitsui sell off their production facility in 2003? Was it a decline in CD-R sales? Thanks.
