Too long to post.

Time to start thinking about ANOTHER format change boys and girls.  Just great.  I'm swimming in Laserdiscs, CD's and DVD's as it is.

That's why I skipped Betamax (and a number of other videotape formats), quadrophony, DAT, MD, laser disk, and I never owned more than 20 original CDs at one time :-)

Where you been, boy? [:D] j/k

I've got 300+ DVD's, 100+ Laserdiscs and between my GF and my CD collections I'd say about 500+ (plus there are about 100GB's of MP3's on 2 servers).  That doesn't include god knows how many CD-ROM's and CD-R's floating around this place and I finally broke down and got a DVD burner a couple of days ago.

They can take their "new and improved" format and shove it where the sun doesn't shine.

The reason they are doing it is to try and prevent piracy, they want to add more copy protection to the disks, so that some other 14 y/o kid can crack it in like a week and be right back where we started. Stupid SOBs don't realize that if they didn't charge so damn much for movies and made movies that weren't lame, then people would buy them more.

They will try and pawn it off as more efficient use of the disk or some crap but it all comes down to the fact that Mr. CEO made x million less than last year and 385 billion in assets just isn't enough.
