Multimedia, AV "Sony has announced it is to deliver its last MiniDisc stereo next month. It marks an end to the firm's support for the system which it launched in 1992. The format only ever had limited success outside of Japan and was ultimately doomed by the rise of recordable CDs and MP3 players." My format of choice for personal audio up until a few years ago, when the rest of the world had already long moved on to MP3. Nothing beats the satisfying sound of closing a portable MiniDisc player/recorder with a disc in it.

Not even holding a vinyl record in your hands and feeling the smell of fresh vinyl?

<sarc>Be on your way Grandad ;) </sarc>

No to be honest, you had to be in your youth at that time and place. For me the Commodore Amiga A1200, Sega Dreamcast and Mini Disc occupy that niche. I am sure for someone older or just with a different background that mix would be different.

I never grew up with Nintendo, records or the Apple 2. They were from a different place and time.
