About cinema and television.

Why would people troop off down to the flicks to watch a big screen, when they could all have small personal TVs at home?

Sure, cinema attendances declined for a while and people changed their viewing habits, but the essential big screen experience didn't disappear. It just got augmented by other formats.

You can rinse and repeat for many other "new" technologies.
