It's Cassette Store Day, and organizers of the international "holiday" would like you to dust off those mix tapes -- and maybe buy more, Mark Coleman says.
Luiz Yamashita's insight:

From a very reliable website/magazine such as CNN.com , the author of the article argues that even with the convenience and abundance of music stored on digital files, cassettes (and vinyl) offer tangible and tactile pleasures that are not available in the digital world.  According to the article, there's a large  and growing, subset of consumers who lust for musical objects that they can hold in their hands (and their hearts) as well as their ears.

The article goes in depth on how the internet has enginneered a new kind of selected market where people will go after what they are looking for ! and very specific is the new promising revival of the cassette tape which according to the author could be comparable with the Vynil revival but is not receiving enough attention.. The Cons would be that the format of magnetic incrypted tape decays with time making it not reliable on the long run.
