I guess all this does beg the question, At at this point, *should* tape be dead for long-term storage?

Re: Reports of death ...
They have been saying that about tape for a lot longer than 10 years, but your point is well taken. 

The pundits have got to have something to say to justify their existence, and the people that want to sell you something else are certainly going to tell you over and over your current technology is really not very current anymore.

If it's not flash, it will be something else. Content has to be able to migrate to survive.

Reports of death ...
Pundits have been saying tape is dead for a decade or more and it's still around. Flash vendors shouldn't get too worried.
