If you’ve been holding off on buying a DVD player, the time has come to face facts: VHS is dead. You’ve already noticed the shift at Costco, always a reliable indicator – the VHS tapes are almost gone. Now Circuit City has become the first major retailer to announce that it intends to discontinue sales of VHS titles altogether. It won’t be long before new VCRs get hard to find. Not long after that you’ll have children snickering behind your back while you mutter, “I just have to rewind this tape a little further, I know the scene I want is in here somewhere . . .”
