Betamax to HD-DVD Converter is Already Obsolete

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  April 8, 2008


ThinkGeek recently announced their latest electronic gadget, a device that can easily convert your old Betamax Tapes to brand-spankin’-new HD-DVD discs.

BetaMax to HD-DVD Converter from ThinkGeek

While it won’t handle transfers of DIVX, MiniDisc or SelectaVision Videodiscs, the BetaMaxHD will convert between two of the most undoubtedly out-of-fashion consumer media formats money can (or can’t) buy.

I’m not sure how I missed this one back on April Fools’ Day, but I thought it was too good to not mention.

I think I’ll stick with my cassette to 8-track tape converter.
