1. We have mortgages - They do not: They still live at home or have roomates.
2. We have to put kids through college, pay for braces, etc. - They do not.
3. We have health insurance and life insurance and home owners insurance premiums to pay
- They generally do not.
4. We set aside contributions to our 401(k) or Roth accounts, if we are smart - They do not.
It sucks that a bunch of pimply faced kids that have no idea of what quality audio & video is have so much power!!

This is where we disagree, IF the format war ends soon Blu-Ray will have time to become entrenched if not close to mainstream before the downloads kick into overdrive.
I hope HDM doesn't go the way of vinyl with only a few boutique labels.
