    Not quite.

    Video may be dead as far as new releases go, but there are still billions of perfectly good, playable VHS tapes out there, many with rare and hard-to-find titles that have not been (and may never be) released on DVD. The independently-owned video store in my neighborhood is still 90% VHS and still going strong, I just rented some tapes from them last week. I still use my VCR regularly and I have no intention of giving it up any time soon. Video will be around for many, many years to come.

    Writing's been on the wall for the last six or so years.

    No surprise there.
