That said, newer isn't always better.
A lot of Windows 8 users would agree with you!
Unless you are talking about people illegally carrying a concealed handgun. You know... Like the criminals...
However, now that both Comcast and ATT are forcing you to use their router, and their router does not allow you to change DNS, this is much more of a problem.
just look at all the mass shootings, despite all this dick measuring about the need to have guns not one of those gun toting citizens ever has the balls to actually get in the firing line when shit goes down but the american solution is "need more guns!".
It literally would only take a few seconds to find hundreds of cases where someone with a concealed handgun stopped a mas shooting. But I am sure you don't actually want any facts to interrupt your rhetoric...
The replacement for tape is different tape. Optical media isn't going to catch up to the data densities or transfer rates that tape has to offer any time soon. The (kinda old) LTO4 changer I use for my personal stuff handles 800GB/tape and only needs about three hours per tape. This new disc format isn't even going to be competitive with an eight year old tape spec.
Tape may be faster to write for now, (They never said the speed...) a single file restore will not be. Especially if it is towards the end of the tape. THis has alwayse been the limiting factor of tape.
