Not saying that is old Hive but .... the copyright was 2002

Anyone think that the picture of the pirate looks like Yorick?

You can buy turntables and tape decks at the Source now, which copy right to your PC, via USB cable. So...

Maybe it's stage clothes, complete with parrot accessories.

I was thinking the same thing, but wasn't going to point it out.

I was also thinking about the usage of cassette tapes, back years ago in the glory days of vinyl. I've still got a number of mix tapes I made... got down to where I'd time the space between songs on an album so I could eliminate the white space between them. A whole cassette with no breaks between songs... awesome!

But these kids these days...

If the tape deck devices were less, I'd buy one. I would like to take a bunch of stuff off my tapes as well.

The guy at the Source even said to me that I could copy all the stuff and return it within X number of days of their return policy. What the heck kind of thing is that to say to a person.

It would be nice to rent it for a weekend.

You can buy a US$20 unit that will take an external audio source and connect it to your PC, letting you convert whatever you'd like (LP, cassette, 8-track, DAT, whatever!) to MP3. I've got one... now, to get my turntable and base unit back to working order...

As for the guy's comments, I suspect he's a wee bit mistaken. Most of the electronics stores that I know will not accept media returns if the media's been opened, other than to replace it with the same thing. Since I couldn't narrow it down, what's the full actual store name?

Well, he's talking about the tape machine, not the media itself, which would have a return policy.
