Maybe this isn't really news but I thought I'd post it here anyway:

I'm not sure what this means in terms of new consumer minidisc
recorders, probably not good.  With the lineup of low cost solid state
recorders increasing, it may cease to be a viable product in a few
years.  Except in Japan.

The issue that does exist however is the difficulty in archiving
digital only media.  With the minidiscs it was easy to have yourself a
tangible backup.
