Bill Gates Says DVDs Have No Future

By Derek Sooman on July 14, 2004, 1:24 PM
Bill Gates, the man who obviously decides everything about computers, has decreed that DVDs shall whither and die, for they have no future as a storage medium.

"In an article published in the German mass-circulation daily Bild, Gates said DVD technology would be "obsolete in 10 years at the latest."

"He said the concept of carrying around film and music on little silver discs to stick them into a computer was ridiculous. He moaned that DVDs could get scratched or get lost."
