I’d be remiss if I didn’t note that I live in the town with the last Blockbuster
I was always kind of a Family Video kinda guy, but it’s damn something to go from 9,000 Blockbusters in 2004 to 1 in 2018. Front page news here of course, but even WaPo picked it up:
Even the IBM computers are running the same floppy disks from the 1990s, she said, shocking the younger employees.
Running a business with software on a floppy disk would shock me, and I’m 100 now. I wonder what happens when the floppy fails? Anyway, I haven’t personally gone over there, because, uhm, I don’t even have a DVD player.
