AMAZING!

So happy for you and Vilya !

Fantastic !

My Step dad is visiting and watched Godzilla Vs Kong... It was so much fun !

Looks like the big 3 have broken street dates for The Super Mario Bros. and John Wick 4 (here). Interesting in: ďBest Buyís 4K Steelbook for John Wick: Chapter 4 is already listed as sold out.Ē John Wick 4 will be a rare blind buy for me.

That’s great to hear gotmule. Sounds like a treasured memory for both of you.

The baby boomer generation are people born between 1946 and 1964, so that currently places them between the ages of 59 and 77 years old, a high percentage of people in that generation wonít be a live in another 20-30 years, they will pass much sooner than that.

Disc will be fine, don’t worry about it. Every five years we get predictions of its death. Plus people in their 60’s (in general) are going to have a good 20 years left at least, people are living longer than ever.

We also have my generation (gen X) who have to die off first. Something the article failed to acknowledge.

I know a shit load of people my age who still watch DVD (only a handful who watch 4K discs like myself.)

I was not sure what you were referencing until I did a search. What a great set you guys are getting in the UK! Stateside, it's just a steelbook exclusive via GRUV.com I'll probably get it. Amazon UK had this giant set reminiscent of the Jaws set they had a few weeks ago. It quickly sold out there, too.

Yeah, two of my favourite films getting the special treatment. Jaws was great.

I see peopole have been discussing the Apple AR/VR

I think we can all agree that
1) even if we assume this is better then the rest such technology has been around for a while by other companies so in that sense nothing new
2) since others have neen doing it for a while there are usage for it and people that will buy it for those uses.
3) there might be reasons someone will pick this to watch a film (i.e. when I used to travel a lot I used to watch films on my laptop in the planes, if it was an option and I had one I think it would give a better experience then the laptop so I would use this)

That being said when I got a 3D projector I bought 6 glasses to go with it, thinking one day I might buy more so we can watch with more guests. I never did and since then 2 of the glasses have stopped working and I have not bothered replacing them (not enough content and we can just watch 2D when thre are more than 4 of us watching.

so here is my 2 cents

Do I think the guy that bought his last TV at 350$ on black Friday will go out and buy one of these for each member of his home to replace the TV? Not really

On the other hand of the spectrum do I think that the guy that built a nice HT so he, family and friends can enjoy a top presentation will go out and buy a bunch of these things to replace his projector? not really

Do I think if someone has one at hand might they use it occasionaly under specific scenarios to watch a film at their home as well? yes, why not.


Now as for films being shot and seen in 180. I think many games can benefit from 360. where you choose to look in the direction you want to look into. But
[img]https://cdn-images-1.medium.com/v2/resize:fit:800/1*HhK2gvo-eINK_ebISS4jcQ.png[/img]
but the central 30 is where you see the best and detail, 60 is where you see well, 120 you have your normal peripheral view, anything past that is monocular and mostly good for picking up big movement. that is where a person says "I think I saw something" and turns they turn their head to really see what it was that they thought they saw.

So even if these glasses can show 180 (did not ready anywhere that they can) it would be useless for films, since directors won't want to throw away most of the screen (i.e. if I move my eye balls to look at my left 0-30 or right 150-180 the person won't be able to see the right (or left) 1/2 of the screen.

The era of physical media formats, such as CDs, DVDs, and Blu-rays, will likely come to an end as the baby boomer generation passes.


Maybe physical media will be all MOD discs before it fades away.


Kirk Bayne
looks like one of those stupid things some young person thinks sound interesting.


I know some are boomers in this thread and in their retirement but I also know a few of us, like myself are X and later and interested in physical media.

Face computers long game is when subjected to ads you can't look away. Close you eyes and playback is paused.

it could have been better called, "I am young, I don't care about these stuff and I think no one else that is young will care about theme so they will end when the current old people that care will be gone."

It is a stupid premise because with many of the stuff in the list and ph\ysical media in particular I know many young people that care.

that being said the title is "10 Things That Will Cease to Exist When Boomers Are Gone"

and not
"10 Things That Will Cease to Exist When most Boomers Are Gone"

that would have to be taken as the last one is gone because boomers won't be gone before the last one is gone.

My son just spent over $3k to upgrade his computer last week and this was the first new game that had come out since... just realized that I haven't spoken to him much this week...

He's really excited for something called "starfleet"...

Pretty sure you mean Starfield. Itís a new open world space exploration game. Looks fantastic.

Congrats to your son by the way, I was big into gaming rigs when I was younger.

As was I... I've actually been somewhat useful in helping him put together his last 3 rigs even with my diminishing mental faculties...lol...

It still never ceases to amaze me how plug and play everything is now... I can feel him rolling his eyes every time we put together a computer and i regale him with stories about how much harder it was back in the day configuring IRQs and solving port incompatibilities pre internet when all you were armed with was old copies of computer magazines... many of which were from your side of the pond...

Anyways, it looks like our next project will be building a pretty decent HTPC out of the reclaimed parts of his last rig..
