Rip van Winkle
Lo this headline:
"Not long ago, both parties were smugly predicting that the movie-disc war between the Blu-ray and the HD DVD camp would be over in 2008, but it has not played out that way."
What? Did I sleep too long? Is it already 2009? Come on, I know that times are moving faster and faster, but are we at the point where we are now looking back at what happened next year?
Anyway, even as I bought a HD-DVD player a couple months ago, it is only now that it's dawning for real upon me that most movies do not come in both formats, only in one of them. That is really stupid of me not to notice. But then it is also really stupid of the movie industry to do it that way.
