As always, YMMV, of course, but for you hardware junkies, your ship has hit that paradigm shift iceberg and is headed down. If you do NOT recognize the paradigm shift that is happening and adapt to it, in your next job, you will be saying quite often, "Would you like fries with that?"
I love this rant, and have been saying just this for over a year, though I am waiting for 1080p with uncompressed audio to be downloadable. I think hard media is going to be unnecessary in the not too distant future and couldn't agree more that both of these formats may well become obsolete before either truly wins!

Now, I sure hope MY next job doesn't involve fries......
