In my country (Brazil), there are people, usually homeless people or drug-abusing men, that boils the tape to extract the chemicals and then drinking the beverage to get high. The liquid is called "Tape Tea" (“Chá de Fita”) and some people (with very good reasons) think it is brain-damaging. With more and more old tapes being disposed, the ill practice achieved a peak on its use. Should it be noted on this Wikipedia Article? 22.214.171.124 (talk) 17:24, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
Interesting, but only if you can reliably source it. Chaheel Riens (talk) 21:35, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
I was astonished that the work leading to both the compact cassette and the compact disc and the inventors/designers behind them is not well documented yet. I suggest a page about Lou Ottens as a first step. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 02:40, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
No capitalization is required in the title. The correct title for this article is Compact cassette. Any objections to a move?--Wetman (talk) 19:37, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
Objection here. It was a brand name,a proper name for a particular standard for audio tape. It's rather like "personal computer" vs. "Personal Computer" - you can only get the second one from IBM. --Wtshymanski (talk) 20:03, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
I was curious how many cassette tape manufacturers were still in business, and if it's a small number, who they are. It might be interesting to have a graph of the number of manufacturers worldwide over time. -- Beland (talk) 14:13, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
