Blu-ray, "A Bag of Hurt"
Wow, Steve Jobs is telling it like it is. Well, telling it like he thinks it is. Engadget is reporting from Steve Job's keynote speech. The Apple Computer honcho said, "Blu-ray is just a bag of hurt. It's great to watch the movies, but the licensing of the tech is so complex, we're waiting till things settle down and Blu-ray takes off in the marketplace."
This is coming from a man who sits on the Blu-ray Disc Association. Wow. What else did Jobs and his croonies had to say?
"We have the best HD movie and TV options in iTunes" Wow. Is that really as good as it gets?
Jobs also commented (when asked about the dearth of HDMI in his product introductions) that HDMI was "limited in resolution," and Philip Schiller elaborated by saying that "for typical computer use, DisplayPort is the connector of the future."
Looks like Blu-ray is really going to have to prove itself before Apple will even think about including them in their computers. Too bad. -Leslie Shapiro
