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:
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.
