Just in case you thought VHS tapes were going to make some kind of vinyl-esque comeback, Wal-Mart is here to tell you, you're wrong. The uber-retailer is ditching the plastic format after holiday 2005, meaning they'll hang around long enough to reap the Christmas profits, and then, when your 83-year old grandmother wants to return The Santa Clause in exchange for Mr. and Mrs. Smith she'll be out of luck. Wal-Mart isn't the only one with VHS-ire: Target is planning its escape, and Best Buy and Circuit City have already trimmed their shelves of the ancient (but still useful! I swear!) format.
