The Casualties of the Digital Age

November 7, 2013

It’s near impossible to deny that the increasing digitalisation of the modern age isn’t handy, I’ve often wondered what people did before Google, but there are a few downsides.

The last few Blockbusters are closing in the US, it’s officially the end of an era. Although it is more convenient to browse on Netflix or Sky in your own home when looking for a movie, it doesn’t have the same sense of occasion that visiting Blockbusters had. I’m  already feeling the nostalgia for the day when we’ll all go ‘remember when …’, but in a world based on how fast and easily anything can be done, the video giant really couldn’t compete.

It begs the question of what’s next to go, books and newspapers are being slowly phased out by their e-equivalents. But it’s not all doom and gloom, although some things may be leaving us, there’s still the thrill of what’s yet to come.
