Recording information is an inherent part of our humanity.
As we evolve, we create more efficient means of storing

greatly increased our ability to store and access large
quantities of information.

What about movies?
We are beginning to move into an age where any movie or
TV show we wish to watch is accessible online. Large VHS
or DVD collections are no longer necessary as more
entertainment is at our fingertips. We are also abandoning
traditional rental services in favor of services, like Hulu and
Netting that offer streaming content on the web.
