I wouldn't be so sure. The numbers of both cassette production and sales have been rising in the past few years and they're certainly higher than, let's say, 10 years ago. I think that cassettes won't ever reach the popularity they had in the 80s and the 90s again (I would be glad if they did, though), but they sure are gaining new fans steadily. With so many alternative bands putting out records in CC, cassettes are bound to get more enthusiasts, especially among the DIY folk. That being said, compact cassettes are an old an inneficient medium of information, with little in the way of audio quality, and it wouldn't surprise me if they faded to obscurity. Well, you could way it's more about the cassette culture now than the quality of the records themselves, anyway.

Still, I shared the article mainly to get interesting responses to it (I guess most of them are going to disagree with the article itself), and I would appreciate if you would include your reasoning and thoughts about the subject in your comment.

To be honest, I have used cassettes in the past. I enjoy the medium. it's nice to take the time to make a mixtape. you actually have to listen to the music to do so. I guess what I'm saying is that I don't expect to see them on the shelves at Wal-Mart ever again. that being said, cassettes are cool!
