Goodbye HD-DVD

posted in: Technology | 2

I saw the writing on the wall nearly a year ago, while so many continued dishing out money for extremely expensive HD-DVD players and DVDs.  Have people learned nothing from these types of “format wars” of the past?  Hello?  VHS vs. Betamax?  What did you expect?  Now, nearly a million people around the world are stuck with what will become their ridiculously expensive standard definition DVD player and a few HD DVD titles, such as The Ultimate Matrix Collection.

So, what do you think?  Did Toshiba take the red pill or the green pill?  It was always a delusion.  They never had a chance.

But don’t expect me to rush out and buy a Blueray player, not until Sony shoves their DRM up their corporate behinds (or someone successfully hacks it — maybe they already have???).
