VHS vs. Betamax

One of the writers at The Guardian attempts to explain why VHS is better than Betamax. He claims that VHS is actually the superior technology, yet he forgets to actually prove this. Oh wait, there is this:

Indeed, the main thing that didn't fit was the idea was that Betamax was "technically superior". Standing in a shop at the time, there was absolutely no visible difference in picture quality, and some reviews had found that VHS's quality was superior.

Ah, well, yes. Since once guy who watched two tapes at a shop in the late 70s (I would presume) couldn't see the difference between VHS and Beta, then obviously there is none!

I'm sure someone else can take the time to explain why the writer is off his chump in regards to DAT technology.
