YES! Great piece, keep up the terrific work. This is the type of information that should gain recognition for it’s craft. More writers should learn from you. This is right on the money.

Yes, definitely apple wins. Apple is the number 1 of the world. There is no such platform like the apple and it rally rocks.

There seems to be much speculation lately that downloads will replace the ultimate winner of the high-def disk war...Thanks

Apple is a universal worldwide winner of all times. Apple has proved its excellence since a very long time and no one in this world can just replace it. Thanks for sharing.

What's the crummiest phone out there? Probably an issue of personal preference, unless you're basing it on which breaks most easily. In that case, it's the Razr V3. SquareTrade, an independent warranty company, just released data on phone reliability bas

Personally, for me apple is the best, it has proved its technology across boundaries and apple will never loose in any competition.

Blu-ray won The sturm und drang over the Blu-ray vs HD DVD battle has come to naught. After a bit of jostling Blu-ray has taken an unassailable lead over HD DVD.

First of all, the file size is huge and the hard drive in the Apple TV will only hold a few HD movies. I'd have to have many TB of storage. Second, bandwidth is a huge factor. To download a single HD movie I have to start it at night and let it download while I'm sleeping because it takes all night. That's with a high speed Comcast cable connection.

Warner is today one of the bigger suppliers of HD DVD titles..I'm expecting to hear Apple announce its support for Blu-ray in the new Mac Pro and MacBook products coming at MacWorld Expo in 10 days. Actually I expected Apple to throw its weight behind Blu-ray during 2007, but I'm still pretty sure it'll happen.


I don't see how iTunes rentals and Blu-Ray are competing with each other. Reason why iTunes is successful in music is the ability to own the music. I believe people are just as willing to buy BD media as they are willing to rent HD movies. Did on-line (or any other) rentals have any effect on DVD sales? Why would the case be any different with HD formats?!

That being said, I'd like to get the iTunes rental to Europe as fast as possible because I think it has potential to be a great service. Still only effect that is has to my consumer behavior is that instead of going to rental shop I click my mighty mouse . . .

It's a good news that Apple Wins the Blu-Ray Vs. HD-DVD War! And Apple deserves it.
