  1. Just think. Some day we’ll be tossing these now $50 Blu-Ray disks in the trash can like so much junk. AOL will be mailing them to us ad nauseum, loaded with spam.

    It will be interesting to see if Bill Gates is right, and the current generation of Blu-Ray and HD DVD disks will be the last removeable media, eventually displaced by broadband network distribution and backup.

    I think I may already be there. I hardly every write a CD ROM anymore. Everything gets backed up to a big disk.

    Apple wants to stream us our videos and cut out the need for DVDs of any size.

  2. Steve’s half brother….
    In a year or two Bray will be what DVD is today. They’re already working on a 100gig disc. technology dates to soon these days, don’t rush out and buy, but don’t wait to long either. Stuff should be 200 bucks when they’re first released if they want to sell this stuff.

  3. Why, oh why can they not put out a medium that is better protected from destruction? My God, even the lowly floppy disc had a better shelf life than DVD’s and CD’s. Reckon it is to keep everyone buying?

    “Now hold on, Skeeter. If that thing don’t ever break, they gonna buy just one. Let’s think about this a little longer…”
