Default ZDNet Editorial: Blu-ray is Dead

Quote:
Quote:
While we may not agree with everything that was said in this editorial, we do believe that pricing Blu-ray players and movies in line with current DVDs is a smart move. Thanks to IceWeasel for the linkage.
Fire all the market research firms telling you how great it is going to be. They are playing you. Your #1 goal: market share. High volume is your only chance to earn your way out of this mess and keep some control of your distribution.
Quote:
Personally, I think that if the consumer could pay the same for HD content versus SD content they would chose high-def every time. Wipe out DVD and you have the market to yourself. Am I wrong?
yeah... flash driver or internet is your best friend...

Blu-ray is dead - heckuva job, Sony! | Storage Bits | ZDNet.com

That is the original article.

I like how below his artcile he has a signature that reads "Robin Harris has been selling and marketing data storage for over 20 years in companies large and small. See his full profile and disclosure of his industry affiliations."

Hmm person who makes a living selling hard drives writes negative article about a product in direct competition with his main stream of income, posting mostly false information.

Makes sense to me.

Thanks Evilyeti, haha the article is funny, and I think dumb. Unless a better technology comes out, bluray has nothing to worry about.
