I'll sit this one out
Don't care/don't know, I still have my VHS tapes.
True it's hard to tell the difference on say, a 32" LCD. But there is clearly a noticeable difference on 50"+.
And last time I checked, most BR players have ethernet connections on them. And those brands that don't, soon will.
XBL: Double 979
Fuck all these download naysayer fucksticks. Have digital downloads replaced DVD, or even come close? No? Not even a factor? Then why the FUCK do shit eating media fuck faces keep trundling out the same shit in the Blu ray argument. I wouldn't even take a piss on a 720p transfer. I'd water some plants instead.
It's true it's doubtful that 60% of current DVD household are Blu by 5 years times, I say it'll take at least 10 years, by then, the new thing will come which is 2K BR or 3D. Still will be HD thought.
I agree 720p is shit, it looks like little improved SD stuff. 1080p all the way !
WHAT IN THE FUCK!!! O_O
Am i fucking seriously seeing the poll numbers correctly?!?!?!?!?!?!

Audiophiles, who are just as high-standard minded as those of us HDphiles. And while mp3s are stuck at a "less then cd-quality" sound and played on sub-audiophile ipods, receivers, computers & speakers, the general Joe Schmoe public really doesn't care as long as the overall user experience makes them satisfied.
Need another example? Just look at the iPhone. This article explains the point again.
the iPhone has "slow" internet connection speed. Yet it has transformed the "superphone" industry. And more iPhone users are browsing the net then on any other phone. The user experience is just better.
Apple knows this and this isn't their first rodayo. And with talks of the economy going turdburgs up, The price point of Apple TV Vs current Bu-Ray (Just saw Sony's new 400 & 500 dollar models they plan to launch soon) and the overall user experience, Apple's HD downloads just may make a good size dent in the short term. And customers may then not see a reason to rush to optical disk anymore long term.
And as everyone knows, technology always gets better. You can bet Apple's HD downloads won't stay rentals forever. Nor will they stay 720p. All apple is waiting for is more widespread "Awesome" FiOS class network support across the country. Same as why they waited on the iPhone's 3G. And the movie studios want to see a proven downloads business model.
I love Blu-Ray just as much as any HDphile, but I wouldn't underestimate Apple TV's influence in the market.
I'm a dog chasing cars. I don't know what I'd do if I caught one. I don't have plans. I just do things. I'm not a schemer.
I use a knife because guns are too quick. Otherwise, you can't savor all the emotions. You know who people are in their last moments.
I believe whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you... stranger.
Itunes number two retail store ? My CDs are for sale in all itunes, and yet, I fail to sell more than 10 copies of each a year, when the same CD in stores pulls off 15 000 easy, and I'm talking cult forgotten french punk rock.
No, in itunes, you're just a lost word amongst millions of others, unless your Madonna, you don't sell jack.
mp3s didn't change the music industry, they just took the place of transistor radios. The industry killed music with CDs. Luckily, now vinyl is back and growing, but the damage will take a long time to be repaired.
