When I was clearing out a cupboard the other day, my Son found an old cassette tape, he then proceeded to ask me what it was! I'm pretty sure in 20 more years we may see the same for CD ROMS or DVDs.

This particular post makes me feel so old though and I'm only 30 in a couple of weeks.

I remember buying Doom years ago and when I got the box it jangled round from all the discs inside of it.

I also remember when the first 24x speed CD drives came out, this is when hard drives were too expensive to load a full game on to so CD speed was important so your game didn't buffer as much.

Kids these days with their solid state iPads and 3D games consoles.
