    I normally use my last finger, unless it's a long rewinding process. due to stucked tapes in the head.

    I use my last finger too...but normally, I don't have to do so unless for special reasons. cos I listen from Side A -> B then the cassette player will auto-flip and play B -> A. At the most just press rewind lor

    probably the scenarios that happen is before there is rewinding?

    It's like an olden day DVD. Portable music players moved from cassette tapes to CD to memory cards. It's amazing how the data, which was once stored in tapes, can exist in such a small chip now.

    Not some, almost all. Not unless the data got too much like in the petabytes range where we choose to use Storage Area Network(SAN) systems with off site SAN backup. Some of the latest technology offers multi-tiering where you stack SSD, SAS HD and SATA HD together to give you speed and large storage capability along with the extremely neat snapshot technology for instance backup.

    In current technology, tape backups are still the most reliable backup technology but not consumer pricing yet.

    Actually some are smaller than the cassette you saw above, just thicker

    I suppose the right words are "not digital". They are analog After all, regardless of digital or analog, all of them are data. Isn't it ?

    If you ask me, I say all are analog. The difference in so called digital or analog is how you interpret the analog data to determine between digital and analog

    Many years back, I have actually though of writing a driver for my old sound blaster card to write digital information into an audio tape. Didn't really get into it because never really pick up driver writing skills in my study and career path.
