He also thought the internet wasn't going anywhere and did nothing serious about it for years.

There will always be physical media in some form. Why? I like to actually hold what I own. So does just about everyone else.

There's also a lot of commoditiy fetishism attached to DVDs.  Why else would we care so much about our packaging, the cover art, and keeping our collections immaculate?
DVDs are the embodiment of frenzied consumerism!

I have no desire to hold anything belonging to you, in spite of what you might have read Wink

And has the man never heard of vinyl? Loads of people still buy that over CDs/DVD-A. We'll all be flying around in rocket cars next.

Bill Gates also believed no one would ever need more than 64k of memory for their computers.
