  1. Toshiba's battle against Blu-ray has come full circle, it seems. After they announced their decision to end HD DVD, there were many questions about what their future held. Some suggested they'd compete with another format; others said they'd drop out of the market. Instead, Toshiba sought access to the BDA earlier this year, and began working on a Blu-ray player of their own.

    This is great news, if this Toshiba is as reliable over time as the other Toshiba optical drives... They are now the leader in high definition... Quality across the board for Toshiba.

    Shame no HD DVD, although cannot blame them. But they could at least give the early adopters and upgrade path. There are still some HD DVD floating around. Perhaps the studios with a good PR kick can give BR versions of movies at a discount to the people with HD versions. Wishful thinking, and probably more likely in a better economic climate... oh well...

    ...I'm waiting for the 3D High Def disc player to come out in a few minutes...
    And then when that's out, I'll be waiting for the 2K streaming internet player to come out and finally buy something.
