There is little question that Joe & Susie Sixpack haven't jumped onto the high-def DVD bandwagon and, as more providers like Apple begin to deliver high quality content directly to their TV at reasonable prices, it's not likely that they ever will. I think it's entirely possible that the earlier comment about the war being over and Steve Jobs is the winner might prove to be much more accurate than anything coming out of either battle camp at the moment.
Iím getting and Apple TV this week and I know a business associate that is also planning to get one.
That Steve Jobs could sell a catsup popsicle to a woman in white gloves!!
