Idiot of the Day

Posted: March 15, 2007 in Uncategorized
The European chairman for the Blu-ray Disc Association just said today that, "Within three years, it will just be Blu-ray". He’s basically saying the DVD format will be gone.
 
DVD has been around for a LOT longer than three years…about 10 years now, I believe. Did it replace the videocassette? Nope…you can still buy and rent movies on VHS. Did it replace CD-ROM or CD-RW? Nope…you can still buy both at almost any electronics outlet. Can this moron convince the studios to stop releasing movies on DVD? Maybe…but the studios would have to be willing to take a massive financial hit.
 
Oh yeah…what about HD-DVD? It’s going to have a lifespan of less than three years? Maybe…but this moron will have to convince the studios to stop releasing movies on HD-DVD, and be willing to take another financial hit.
 
And how does he expect to win the format war, not only against HD-DVD, but against DVD as well?
 
With a game console.
 
Yeah, right…
