Re: Why did Toshiba really drop the HD-DVD Ball?
What I find so amazing is that Toshiba and Sony figured it out 11 years ago, and this - THIS surely fantastic time to bring on HD discs - totally failed for them and the entire multi-billion dollar format.
The only thing more absurd is NASA's capability with old space shuttles - and even my old Beta and VHS from about 1976 still play tapes and don't self destruct.
Now if we can just get Sony to end the endless Java Script updates. It still takes me 3 min 26 second to cue up Ratatouille on my BDP-S1, though the PS3 is good to go in about 57 seconds
