Dell Demos 5K Display

theendlessnow Re:Same reason blu-ray didn't take off (204 comments)

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). http://www.extremetech.com/wp-... 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...

Sony Warns Demand For Blu-Ray Diminishing Faster Than Expected

theendlessnow Not again.... (477 comments)

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?

Dear Sony,

Please send me $50K USD every year for the next 10 years and I'll consider buying some Blu-ray material.
