I guess you still have a 3.5" floppy drive in your PC.

What's a DVD?


It's that thing you turn into a digital copy for use on your iOS devices.

If DVDs are so out of date, then what are these silver orbs that Redbox spits out? If you're going to call it an Apple TV then at least cater to the largest media format running at that point in time.


Good thing you weren't in the Apple meetings back when they introduced the iPod...."Hey guys, this thing is worthless. Let's put a CD player in it."

I hope you enjoy the 90s.
