What year did the tape player stop being used around the world?
Since we have Digital now.
I've got a cassette tape player in my old chevy truck I still use. Ain't putting in cd. So they are still used! Old school-
I'm sure some people still use it now but the CD player became available in America in 1982-1983
because we have digital tapes get ruined stretched.But pre WWII GE invented the vacuum tube while other went chips diode tech. GE greased enough palms to set electronics BACKWARD 30 yrs. Not all tech is forward.
