Death of the Computer Optical Drive

Mark: you are a fucking dick.

Nevermind the fact you just flippantly write off all physical media as “irrelevant” just because you’re hooked like a 12 year old on your trash Netflix, you start off banging on oh-so-knowledgeably about “lack of space”…..yet never once mention PC’s (no Mark, a ‘laptop’ is NOT a ‘PC’).

Oh I also love this gem – inserted into its own special little “Note” box to show how extra extra knowledgeable lil Marky is about such matters:

“In fact, many people have more storage in their computers today than they are likely to use over the lifetime of the system.”

Errrr. Is that why I’ve had to go from a 1TB to a 2TB to a 4TB for my games drive ALONE, Mark? Nevermind my MEDIA drive, which at 2TB is down to the last 4GB. Is that why I had to go from a 250GB C: drive to a 500GB, and now have a 1TB NVMe? (don’t worry about NVMe, Mark – you won’t have heard of that yet). In the last bit about “format wars” he doesn’t even mention 4K – which as Mark doesn’t know, is region free.

I can’t believe this article was dated 2021. I can only presume Marky here is the Work Experience boy tasked with writing about “those silly old discs”.

I'm a gamer. I'm a coaster. I am happy in general. We're all born by chance and we're all gonna die. That makes me no better or worse than you. Get over that fact and we'll probably get along. I comment on the Google news feed a lot. Oh, and I swear quite a lot.
