[QUOTE=ChristineBCW;2687023]“Includes SATAII” - sounds more like they opened up a few dusty boxes - “Say, what’s in here?” and found a whole bunch of SSD-boards with SATAII works on them. “Hey - we paid 8-cents per million for those - might as well use 'em!”
It really sounds like TDK is sweeping out the corners (“What’s left?”) but maybe they’ll jump back into Sales of Storage Media.
Has anyone bought VHS tapes lately? Who’s selling those still?[/QUOTE]
The last VHS recorded tapes were shipped in 2008 apparently.
I haven’t bought any lately, I think my last purchase was when the Matrix was released. I do have a few blank VHS tapes still shrink wrapped in a storage cabinet. I think they’re BASF brand.
BASF, Maxell and TDK made billions from those blank tapes in the 80’s and 90’s. All 3 also had a presence in the blank optical media industry.
With the death of tapes and continuing decline of optical media, it remains to be seen if each company has diversified successfully enough not to go the same way as Kodak.
