EH, I'm not liking either too much right now, it takes 2 whole friggin minutes to initialize an HD DVD, I don't like sony's attempts to own the market, so I hate blu-ray.

No more Pablo San Lucas, you'll have to reset your title because I can't remember what it was

I do NOT want another remake. I just want the originals. Then I would be able to recreate all the fight scenes with my light sabers! j/k

This is from an article about the two different players and formats that are out there. The entire article is at

http://money.cnn.com/2006/07/07/tech...tune/index.htm


Friday night: Agony. We have to decide between the two formats, because there are no Players with Two Heads on sale yet. Then, in an epiphany, we realize that only videophiles who already own a 1080p HDTV will really care at this point. It will be months before a wide selection of movies are available in either format.

There are initial technical glitches in both formats (Toshiba released a software patch too late to be tested for this experiment). If we had to choose tonight, we'd go with Blu-ray and hope we were not stuck with a dead-end format. But we don't have to choose tonight. Instead, we'll download some videos over the Internet from YouTube.com. Idea for my next great experiment: Creating high-definition video downloads over broadband that don't use either Blu-ray or HD-DVD. That's a scary idea for the movie and electronics companies, isn't it? That they have wasted all this money and effort on format standards that no one will care about? (Fade out to maniacal laughter.)


I do believe that I had mentioned earlier we should start a business for that last idea the journalist wrote about. Lets take over this stupid war!!

Plus who wants to watch Blazing Saddles in HD...couldn't we do something better like Fifth Element? She is so hot in those suspenders!
