V -- Video killed the radio star

Video killed the radio star by The Buggles was a song I heard very few times, but it left its mark.

The song talks about modern day inventions and how they make something else obsolete. Specifically, how video killed the radio.

Those were the days when VCRs had just come into the market. Ironically, within a few years, VCRs themselves would be killed by the CD. Since then, the technological death march has continued. Nowadays, there is much less lean time, with newer technologies outdating previous technologies, almost before half the population has had a chance to buy it.

And of course, the mobile phone has killed so many things, including videos, radios, cameras, watches, editing consoles, pianos.

Will this ever stop?
