Blu-ray: the 5 Year Countdown
I know that this is the way of technology, but it was still a little shocking to hear Andy Griffiths (go ahead, whistle, you know you want to) of Samsung say that Blu-ray has 5 years left as a viable media format.
Really? All of that warring and hooting and hollering between Toshiba and Sony for what amounts to be 5 years? I guess we get to look forward to another Sony proprietary after that. Joy.
But like I said, nobody should be surprised, though DVD’s have had quite a run and won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. It’s just the way these things go, for good or ill.
What do you think is next? A lot of people are putting their money down on digital downloads, but I don’t know if I buy that yet.
