Ah! Thanks for the info. I didn't know the whole story in the Betamax vs. VHS competition. I do know it came down to the consumer as: VHS = Cheap and Betamax = Expensive.

As far as the 8-track issue, all I know is what I heard in the past. It was a reliability issue and then came a technology 'cusp'. Head and tape transport technology improvements made the use of thin tapes 'possible'. Cassettes were smaller and the 8-Tracks didn't have a chance. A dual issue of size and reliability.

But, I certainly could be wrong! :thedeal:
