top Developers, IT Still Racking Up (Mostly) High Salaries
True $140K is not poverty... it's slap dab in the middle of the average middle class for households according to President Obama. And this is slashdot, so you can't argue with that since it has to be true.

top Dell Demos 5K Display
Uh.. hate to break it to you but no... Blu-ray does not have the success that it was supposed to have. In fact, the thing that has taken off is sub-par supposedly HD streaming content... which often times looks worse than DVD.
Sony paid a whole lot of bribery money and arguably lost (again).
Hopefully that shows that Blu-ray is hardly a "win"... in fact, it's sort of pathetic... especially if consider the saturation of DVD content and (illegal) the accessibility of such content vs. HD and Blu-ray. That is to say, DVD is doing quite well when arguably it shouldn't be doing well at all.
Does it show DVD decline? Yes. Does it show Blu-ray rise? Yes... but doesn't look pretty for Blu-ray. Sony tried to buy their way technology wise this time (after the betamax debacle)... how well is Sony doing nowadays? I find that interesting...

top Sony Warns Demand For Blu-Ray Diminishing Faster Than Expected
After I just got done buying enough Blu-ray equipment to transfer over all of my Betamax vids... sheesh! I thought for sure that Blu-ray would win after Sony paid everyone off. Maybe if they paid the consumer to buy Blu-ray?
Please send me $50K USD every year for the next 10 years and I'll consider buying some Blu-ray material.
